Donation Day, 12 June, 10am – 1pm

Whether you’re clearing out your garage or shed, downsizing your workshop, or finishing up a construction project, donate your surplus materials to us to save them going in the skip !

The Rebuild Site CIC saves surplus building materials from going to landfill. We either donate these to community groups and charities for their projects, or they go into our shop to provide materials at a low cost to our local community.

Four times a year we host a Rebuild Donation Day, where we accept donations of building materials from the general public at our depot in Carlisle. 

Our next donation day is Sunday 12 June, 10am – 1pm.

Donations are most useful to us when they are in saleable condition. For us, this means they are new/unused, clean and organised, and not damaged or broken!
