    Thanks for contacting us. We do not buy anything, and we are unable to accept building supplies. Urban Ore or Ohmega Salvage in Berkeley may be interested. Building REsources in SF may accept this material, but i don’t believe they will buy it. However, if you donate to a nonprofit, you can deduct the value as a charitable donation.

    thanks for thinking of SCRAP.

    Hello Meghan,

    I’m not sure what sort of glass you are looking for. Please call 4154 647-1746 or email Jake at scrap-sf dot org to discuss your requirements. We’ll probably have what you need.

    Thanks for Thinking of SCRAP.

    I work for a non profit summer program for elementary students. I’m on the hunt for glassware for glass painting. Do you carry any? I would need at least 54 pieces.
