The ReBuilding Exchange
3335 West 47th Street
Chicago, IL


The mission of the ReBuilding Exchange is to divert building materials from the waste stream and make them accessible to the public for reuse, protecting community health, creating jobs and saving resources. We do this through the promotion of sustainable deconstruction practices, by making used build materials available for purchase at low costs, by providing educational resources and by creating programming that builds community and rebuilds Chicago's neighborhoods.


DONATE YOUR USED BUILDING MATERIALS! Got a renovation planned or have some used building materials in your garage? Bring them to us at our retail warehouse at 3335 West 47th Street in Brighton Park in Chicago. All donations must be pre-approved. Please call or email to check on donation guidelines and acceptance policies. All donations are tax deductible.


BUY MATERIALS FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT from the ReBuilding Exchange! Before you go buy something new for that renovation project, drop by our retail warehouse at 3335 West 47th Street and check out our inventory. You’ll find quality materials at low prices for all sorts of projects. We have appliances, lumber, doors, windows, lighting, cabinets, sinks, cast iron tubs and more!


VOLUNTEER WITH US! Volunteers are always welcome at The ReBuilding Exchange. Volunteers help organize and move building materials, reducing the flow of materials into the waste-stream and making it easier for the community to find and reuse resources.


For more information, please email us at info@rebuildingexchange.org or call (773) 847-3761.
