Cheap Building Materials for Community Projects, Schools, Charities…

ReciproCities are centres created by Recipro to sell surplus and reusable building materials into charities, community groups, schools, colleges, churches and other community projects at hugely discounted rates.  These materials can be viewed by registering as a community group or school/college (click here to register).  When you login you will have access to ‘community only’ items.  You can also contact the ReciproCity centres directly (details below) to arrange a visit and find out more.  See this previous post for a short video from some of the community projects we have helpedso far.

We now have 3 ReciproCities set up around the UK; we have one based on Merseyside, one based in South Wales and our newest centre which open just last year is based in East London.

    can you ship building materials to PAPUA NEW GUINEA

  2. Paul says:

    Hi Susan

    I’m afraid we can’t ship out to Papua New Guinea as it wouldn’t make economical or environmental sense to transport the materials so far I’m afraid.

    At present we are just UK based with a ReciproCity in North West England, South Wales and East London.

    Kind Regards

    I can’t find “add project” anywhere on this medium and I would like our club to benefit from this site. Help

  4. Paul says:

    Hi Linda

    First you must be registered/logged in on your account.

    On the right hand side there will be a a bar saying ‘Account Home’ click on that link and a new page will open with all your information.

    Scroll to the bottom of that page and there is an option to ‘add community project’ – you then fill in the relevant information and click save.

    Let me know if there is any problems doing this.

    Kind Regards

    Good morning, My boyfriend is an artist studying and working in London. He is looking for recycled PVC tubes and other construction materials to build an installation. Can you suggest us, please some places we can get them in London (we live in Crystal Palace). Thank You very much.

    Hi – would be great to register our community allotment, if you open something in the Midlands. Could you let us know if and when you do?

    Many thanks
