Heartwood ReSources

Donate Your Used Building Materials

Household goods and usable building materials of all kinds are accepted. Heartwood ReSources depends on generous donations to help eliminate waste and reduce emissions in our community.  All donations are tax-deductible, and a tax receipt is available at our retail store.

Donations can be dropped off at our retail store from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday.

Over 197 tons of building materials were repurposed through our store in 2020 alone.

For every dollar you spend at Heartwood, you eliminate over 1 pound of waste.

Benefits of Recycling Building Materials

Recycling and reclaiming your deconstructed, salvaged, usable building materials is a good idea because:

  • It keeps building costs low
  • It is good for the environment
  • Saves natural resources
  • It helps extend the life of our landfill
  • Donations are tax-deductible

Douglas County Oregon imposes a Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste fee of $60 per ton for all materials not put in the recycle stream. So not only does recycling your building materials make environmental sense, it saves you money too.

Heartwood collects usable paint, both new and used. We are a certified drop-off site for used paint. This is a state-sponsored recycling program known as PaintCare.  We take all architectural paint and paint products and either resell them or ship them to the appropriate recycling facilities. This provides residents with an affordable and convenient system to dispose of unwanted paint leftovers.

Recycling requirements:

  • The container must have the manufacturer’s label.
  • Paint must be liquid and containers at least 3/4 full.
  • No rusty or leaking containers.
  • No chemicals.

Commercial paints, like automotive and equipment paint, is not part of this program. However, Heartwood ReSources will accept paint outside of the recycling program on a case-by-case basis.
