How To Remove Tons of Building Material From Waste Streams
Portland’s Rebuilding Center may be diverting eight tons of building and remodeling materials a day but Executive Director Shane Endicott is the first to admit that the used building materials supplier--which serves 300 people a day--only exists to fund an entirely different organization--Our United Villages.
In this January 12, 2011 interview, KBOO’s environmental reporter, Jacob Anderson-Minshall speaks with Endicott about the founding of Rebuilding Center, its work, and how other communities can create similar initiatives.
Anderson-Minshall is currently on sabbatical from KBOO as he travels the country on a 12 month Greening America Tour with his new nonprofit organization, Green It Forward. Follow his progress and find interviews, podcasts and video at GreenItForward.org.
