What You Can Do
Join us in our mission to keep C&D waste out of the landfill by recovering items that can be reused, either in its original space or another space.
Let our designers enhance your next design with items that have been rescued from your previous deconstruction. Our designers are eager to enhance these items to be perfectly suited to your next space. If you cannot use them, give them to the schottXchange to reduce your landfill footprint.
Benefit from items that other buildings have given to the schottXchange. Reduce your overall project cost while knowing that you are not adding to our environmental crisis by purchasing new, non-recyclable items.
