About Community Forklift
Community Forklift is a nonprofit reuse center for home improvement and architectural salvage. The name refers to our mission: to “lift up communities” in the DC area by turning the construction waste stream into a resource stream for the local economy. We pick up donations of new, gently-used and vintage building materials; these donated renovation supplies are then made available to the public at low prices and donated to local nonprofits and neighbors in need. Community Forklift is located outside Northeast DC, near the Hyattsville Arts District.
