We take surplus materials from construction sites and put them to good use.
Our purpose is to encourage everyone to rethink how to better use materials, reclaim materials that are currently being thrown away or down cycled, and reuse as much excess and ‘nearly-new’ materials as possible, creating value in what is often treated as waste.
The surplus materials we pick up go to community groups and charities to help with their building, gardening, crafting and repair projects. We also sell nearly new and surplus materials to trades and members of the public at reduced prices – perfect for that DIY project you’re planning to get underway!
The construction industry drives 6% of UK GDP while contributing 60% (140m tonnes) of all UK waste – this equates to £6BN lost value from a £100BN annual industry turnover. The sector needs to get much smarter about resource use. By encouraging the reuse of existing surplus materials Rebuild is doing our bit to reduce waste and lower the amount of carbon used in creating new materials.
