Screen shot of Los Angeles DiggersList listing. Any unused Dodgers baseball bats for sale?

A New Online Spot for Cheap Building Materials

 
We've all searched Craigslist and Freecycle for roofing, flooring and other home renovation scraps. Sometimes we hit the jackpot and sometimes we get sidetracked and buy a new TV instead. Whoops. So we were really psyched to hear about Diggerslist.com, dedicated to buying and selling excess from construction sites.

Recently launched in 15 top metropolitan areas, DiggersList allows big construction companies to sell their unused building materials online at discounted prices. Flooring, roofing, tile -- it can all be found.

The new service aims to reduce nationwide construction waste, allow suppliers to offload surplus inventory and make materials available to the DIY enthusiast at reduced cost. Contractors can also post their services on the site, and property owners can post projects they're looking to have professionally done. It's people meeting people, hammer meeting nail, bargain building materials meeting the bed of someone's pickup.

The construction-centric DiggersList can be aptly compared to the beloved CraigsList. The UI has some similarities, although DiggersList features additional info like "Recent Users", "Recent Photo Albums" and a "Recently Listed" section. It's worth checking out, particularly if you live in one of the DiggersList areas. For everyone else, the wait is on.

If you had DiggersList in your area, what would you use it for?

I'm a builder in Orange County and have used DiggersList mainly for offloading my overage. It has not only been easy, it's been profitable. Though I've used craigslist many times, this site makes selling my supplies easy with all it's specific categories for the construction industry.

It's good to see that some people still care about the earth we all live on! It is great that there is a place that extra material can be used or reused from the job site. I live in Minnesota & hope someday we will have DiggerList in our area! Thanks.
