Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

At Stardust, we believe that deconstruction and reuse policies and practices can drive economic growth and prosperity, while avoiding unnecessary waste. When reusing building materials becomes a standard practice, it will create new opportunities for entrepreneurs and the workforce as well as improve our quality of life.

Deconstruction Services

Stardust Deconstruction services provide removal and pick-up of usable building materials at no-cost to the home or business owner to further encourage reuse and environmental stewardship. Stardust's skilled deconstruction teams carefully dismantles and removes cabinets, fixtures, appliances and other building material for reuse. Deconstruction offsets the costs of demolition or remodeling with a tax deduction for the materials removed; conserves landfill space: on average deconstructing one kitchen diverts 2,400 lbs. of usable material from the landfill; reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials; provides affordable quality materials to the community; and supports Stardust's mission to create a culture of reuse.

Gifts In Kind distributes materials donations from large retailers to nonprofit organizations for use by their clients or to offset their operational costs. Gifts in Kind creates a solution that reduces the amount of usable material in our landfill, puts the usable material to work in the community, and generates revenue for Stardust and other nonprofit organizations. Goods distributed by Gifts In Kind come from companies that would have dumped the items they no longer need or are unsaleable due to damaged packaging. Gifts In Kind aggregates the materials where they are then used by Stardust or distributed to other agencies. Paper goods such as toilet paper, paper towels, and diapers along with building materials such as cabinets, plumbing fixtures, doors and windows are used by agencies to fill essential operating and program needs without requiring cash outlay. This activity frees up valuable funding. In 2013 Gifts In Kind generated over $3.5 million in revenue for Stardust and our non-profit partners.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted a study on construction and demolition debris and found that, in a single year, an estimated 534 million tons of construction and demolition debris were generated in the United States—that’s more than twice the amount of generated municipal solid waste. To address this massive environmental issue, our advocacy task force develops key strategies to spread awareness about the importance of building material reuse, informing public policy and public opinion.
We look forward to the work ahead to create a more sustainable Arizona through community and legislative advocacy.

Stardust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We operate two reuse centers for home improvement which sell gently-used, salvaged, and surplus building materials at affordable prices. Additionally, we provide deconstruction services that salvage building materials, divert waste from landfills, and support sustainability in the community.

Our skilled deconstruction team will carefully dismantle and remove building materials, appliances, fixtures, and architectural elements from the interior and/or exterior of residential and commercial buildings for reuse—at little to no cost. As opposed to trashing your gently-used building materials during a remodel, donate them instead.

Our service is fast and easy. Our kitchen deconstruction typically takes between an hour to three and a half hours, depending on the size and scope of the remodel. Plus, at the end of the deconstruction service, we’ll provide a receipt for all your donated materials that you can use for tax purposes.

In our 21 year history Stardust has diverted over 80 million pounds of usable material from our local landfills. We have provided access to ow cost reusable materials for over 54,000 individuals every year and we have distributed over $29 million in household items to our community to support those in need. Our future is focused on building awareness and acceptance of building material reuse as a standard practice in our community.
