Chicago, Illinois Welcomes New Reuse Center

The ReBuilding Exchange has what executive director Elise Zelechowski calls a “triple bottom line goal”: to help the environment by keeping materials out of landfills (her organization estimates more than 40 percent of landfill waste is building materials); to provide job training in building deconstruction and material reuse to hard-to-employ Chicagoans (all of their trainees are ex-offenders); and to provide building materials at affordable prices.
