Building REsources: Junkyard 2.0

buildingres.gifBuilding REsources is a small non-profit firm in San Francisco that is anything but non-profit with regards to the environment and helping other firms save costs. The company offers free collection of construction and demolition waste (an otherwise costly affair), which they then sort and resell. This modern day junkyard attracts everyone from homebuilders to artists looking for a good deal and a new use for what would otherwise wind up in a landfill.
