Can’t make it to First Friday?
Save the date for the FunkYard Festival!

Our annual fall event is a celebration of all things reuse in the DC area. Bring your friends, family, and (friendly, leashed) pets to the warehouse on Saturday, October 6th to meet historic preservation experts and tradespeople, get antique appraisal advice, and check out demos of DIY repair and creative reuse. We’ll have artists who work with salvaged/reused materials, live funk music, kids’ activities, local food, and locally salvaged items for sale!


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.
