Other marketplace providers

We are currently working on integrating with more UK construction material marketplaces. Each provides a different approach to helping circulate materials.

A selection of online initiatives are described below. You can also explore the interactive map of exchange marketplaces across the UK which is maintained by Supply Chain Sustainability School.

Enfield Excess Materials Exchange


This platform has been designed to service the Meridian Water development in Enfield, east London, providing opportunities for reuse of components at the site. It is built on the Excess Material Exchange marketplace platform.

Listings are divided into products and projects. Information about products listed on the site includes condition data, information on how it might be repurposed and expected costs. Buyers can then get in contact with the product owner to discuss purchase or get additional information. Projects are typically buildings set for future disassembly or demolition and the site provides information such as the location, proposed timeline for the project and historical information.



Salvo provides listings for a range of reclaimed building materials including antiques. Reclamation businesses and private individuals list items from doors to spiral staircases for purchase.

Their directory of architectural salvage businesses is comprehensive, featuring everything from local salvage yards to architects,

Salvo also hosts demolition listings for items that have not yet been dismantled, so that contractors can contact, dismantle and collect building components from their owners.

We are working with Salvo to connect product listings to the London Material Reuse Portal. Please check back later for updates.



This platform enables sharing of equipment, furniture and other items, working with large organisations such as universities and councils. Schools and third sector (charitable) organisations can join for free. They also provide clearance, repair and cataloguing services.

Grosvenor re-use network


This network for companies and individuals is administered by email. You can contribute materials or request ‘wanted’ items via email. It also links to various studies and webinars by leading players in construction reuse. Find out how to join or contribute here.



Ferris is a digital platform dedicated to giving away and donating items with others and keeping them out of landfill.



Freegle is like online dating for stuff. They pair people who have stuff they don't need with people who need stuff they don't have. This promotes reuse, keeping things out of landfill and incinerators. They have 2.7 million members across the UK.



Freecycle are a grassroots & entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving and getting stuff for free in their own Towns.

Sustainability Yard


Sustainability Yard is an app-based platform that supports tradespeople and DIYers to buy, sell or give away excess building materials from jobs. The simple app is free to download and plans to allow users to generate a report on carbon emissions saved through their sales. It currently does not take a commission on sales carried out on the platform.
