Community Forklift

Founded in 2005, Community Forklift serves as a surplus and salvaged building materials outlet. The group manually disassembles buildings that are targeted for demolition so it can recover and recycle the materials for other uses. Nationally, between 1998 and 2002, 200 stores opened in this industry. According to the Washington-based Institute for Self-Reliance, sales in this sector as of 2002 had reached an estimated $70 million per year.
