It provides new materials for home improvement with a special focus on kitchen cabinetry, windows, doors, energy-saving products, and green products. Anyone can join, and can also shop without joining. The Reuse Center is a charitable nonprofit that accepts donations of new and gently used materials for resale. It opened its doors in 1993 and was known until recently as the Building Materials Resource Center. Anyone can shop at the Reuse Center.
