Hot Item: Surplus Toilets!

These never-been-used toilets are still tucked safely inside their original packaging, with one floor model set up in the toilet aisle. Tanks and bowls are boxed separately but priced at $140 per set.

Don’t miss you last chance to vote us Best Green Business!

Contest rules changed this year, and it means your vote carries a lot more weight. Because we serve a lot of low-income and older folks, many of our Forklift Fans don’t have social media accounts, which means they can’t vote this year. So if you are on social media, it’s especially important that you vote! Voting ends at midnight on Sunday, March 4th – so don’t wait!


City Paper readers have awarded us a “Best of DC” title every year since 2010! And every year, it means valuable free publicity for our nonprofit program. As more homeowners & contractors learn about us, more of them will donate, more materials will be kept out of the landfill, more folks can afford repairs, we’ll be able to create more green jobs, and you’ll find even more amazing stuff here
in the store!


Community Forklift aims to turn the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by diverting landfill waste, preserving historical materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating green jobs. Every dollar you spend in our warehouse helps us lift up local communities through reuse.
