Youth Fair Chance D.B.A. Capitol Reuse Center is a 501(c)(3) not for profit that works to divert usable building materials from landfills while offering donors all allowable tax incentives for their contributions. It provides neighborhoods and individuals, especially the youth, ill and needy, new and affordable building materials for home projects.
We receive overstock items, closeouts and return merchandise that would normally have been sent to a landfills. We then have a handling fee for the merchandise that is 50-90% off of retail value.
The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at 1,609 pounds per person per year. This means that 5% of the world's people generate 40% of the world's waste.
To try and counteract that we divert usable materials from the ever filling landfills to redistribute them to those in need. We go to our donors who need to get rid of things that are perfectly usable and we pick up those items and they get a write off for donating to a 501(c)(3).
