A ceremonial “groundbreaking” for the $3.2 million-dollar renovation of LBC’s 70,000 square-foot warehouse near the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail will take place on Tuesday, June 22, a spokesperson this week told What Now Atlanta in an email.

“This renovation project will further support LBC’s mission of environmental stewardship and community resilience by creating a sustainable lifecycle for the built environment,” they said. “Specifically, LBC’s Reuse Center prevents the disposal of valuable construction materials, provides income-restricted homeowners access to these materials at an affordable cost, and gives free materials to nonprofits.”

LBC also provides free educational resources and job training.

Since 2011, LBC has saved 7.1 million pounds of usable materials, created $4 million in community savings, and donated free materials to 200 nonprofits, according to the spokesperson.
