Lifting up communities through reuse.

Make your renovation project green
Community Forklift offers a free donation pickup service to ensure that reusable materials and appliances are kept out of landfills. For many contractors, promoting reuse to their clients is a no-brainer, and our donors love knowing their items are being given new life!

Many contractors do not know about our free donation pickup service.
You can help change that.
Homeowners — encourage your contractors to take advantage of our free donation pickup service. We will come to the site and pick up the items, and you benefit by receiving a tax deduction*.
Contractors — Call Community Forklift today! We’ll provide details on how easy it is to donate. You can reduce your hauling costs, and your clients will love that you’re doing your part to ‘green’ your business.
* The fine-print: Donations are deductible to the full extent of the law. Maryland donors can benefit from the Maryland Community Investment Tax Credit Program (CITC). Community Forklift donation pickup services must be scheduled in advance. Take the next step in greening your renovation project today!
