Heartwood ReSources depends on generous donations from the community to keep our retail store in operation. Household goods and usable building materials of all kinds are accepted. All donations are tax-deductible, and a tax receipt is available at our retail store.
Heartwood ReSources cannot accept items that are not suitable for resale. At times we may decline donations due to large inventories of the same item in our store. Donations can be dropped off at our retail store from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday.
What Are the Benefits of Recycling Building Materials?
Glad you asked!
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
- It is the lifeblood of Heartwood ReSources
Heartwood ReSources can help you save money
On January 1, 2008, Douglas County Oregon imposed 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.
You can help keep your construction and rehab costs low by segregating and diverting usable building materials to the recoverable waste stream. Contact us for more information.

Paint Recycling Program
We are now a collection point for the state-sponsored recycling program known as PaintCare. We can now 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.
Some things to keep in mind:
- We cannot take leaking cans.
- Commercial paints, like automotive and equipment paint, is not part of this program.
- Cans must have labels.
- We cannot take chemicals.
