Anyone know of a place that will take donated building materials?

We have several boxes of new old stock 1930s tile (light yellow) we need to get rid of. I don't think Goodwill will take them. I would put them by the curb, but they're heavy, so if no one takes 'em, then I'll have to haul them back into the house.

(I also have some extra cement board and Ditra membrane.)

Thanks for any suggestions.

You could always post on Craigslist or Freecycle. You won't get a donation receipt for them but I bet you could rid yourself of them in a matter of days and they will have to come to you to get them.

Thanks, Christine.

I did try to sell them on CL, but I got no takers. Hopefully the free section will generate more interest.

Ideally, some nonprofit would take 'em, as that would spare me from having to coordinate with someone to come by the house.

Just saw your post. Great idea! Do they have some place where one can drop stuff off?

I know they have stores in Manassas, Chantilly & Alexandria. You don't have to deliver them yourself. Give them a call to schedule a pick-up of your donation.

Thanks; I'll call and see if they'll come by and grab 'em. Meanwhile, I just posted an ad on CL.

This is a bit of a hike, but they'll definitely take what you have if you can't find anywhere else to put 'em. Kind of a weird little place to wander through if you're into that sort of thing.

Yes, they are Habit for Humanity ReStores. See this for local stores:

Environmental Initiative: Habitat ReStores -- Habitat for Humanity Int'l

I frequent the one out in Winchester as they have older things they salvage and newish stuff/building materials. They will come by and pick up things or you can drop it off. Good luck!
