So you've renovated your bathroom, and you're wondering what to do with the old cabinets, sink, bathtub. They're in good condition and it seems like such a waste to just haul them to the dump. What do you do?
If you live in San Francisco, you call Building REsources. The non-profit salvage yard accepts tax-deductible donations of clean, reusable building materials. They'll pick them up, free of charge, with advance notice (only within city limits). Your stuff doesn't end up in the landfill. And Building REsources then turns around and sells items to builders, artists, renovators, scavengers at a low cost. Everybody wins.
If you're not in San Francisco, check after the jump for another local favorite... and be sure to add yours!

One of our favorite resources in Portland, Oregon is The ReBuilding Center. We'd love to build a list of these places nationwide. What's your favorite local resource?
