HARVEST eco-salvage, like Eco-Logic before it, is a new type of Non-Profit Corporation that is
totally self-funding and does not rely on grants or public funding to operate. We rely on word-of-
mouth referrals and our hard-earned, excellent reputation. We are proud to have repeat donors.
HARVEST eco-salvage uses experienced, licensed, and insured construction crews to glean the
site assuring the high reuse potential of the materials. We coordinate with the donor and their
General Contractor to glean the materials in an efficient and timely manner to prevent job delays
and scheduling conflicts. Our team has over 50 years of combined experience in appraisal valu- ation, construction, architecture, building codes, and business management.
Our donors pay the costs to implement our program and the program rewards the donors and our community repeatedly, initially with a significant charitable tax donation, then again with the knowledge that their donation provides jobs in our community as well as puts those gleaned materials back to work, lessening the load on our landfills.
Our donors like us, our environment likes us, our neighbors in need like us and even the IRS likes us.
A win-win for everyone!
Our program is unique and is US Patent pending.
Please contact us to find out more about our program and arrange a site visit to allow us to assess how our program can best serve you.
Linda Eales, Executive Director
Formerly known as The Eco-Logic Foundation, we have
reorganized as HARVEST eco-salvage. Through our 16
years of experience in the Phoenix metro area we have
learned what works best in gleaning usable building mater-
ials from structures set for demolition or substantial
remodeling. In those 16 years we earned an un-blemised
reputation with the IRS and issued millions of dollars in
Charitable Non-Cash Deductions, all while keeping millions
of pounds of usable building materials out of local landfills
and back at work in the community. Our donors are issued these deductions based upon stringent IRS rules that require an IRS Qualified Real Estate Appraisal, inventory and materials tracking, and regulations governing material handling, material distribution and material storage. Donors receive IRS form 8283 for a Non-Cash Charitable Donation.
Know of a group in need? Please let them know about us. The
majority (over 90%) of the materials gleaned from our program are
redistributed to other Non-Profits, community service groups,
low-income housing groups, trade schools, educational programs,
theater groups and artist co-ops, at no charge to them. We accept
donation requests from such groups, as well as continually seek
out new uses for the gleaned materials. We are in the "keeping
materials out of the landfill business". We do not operate a
used building material thrift store. We are proud partners with
Habitat for Humanity ReStore, whose profits from the sale of used
materials helps to fund their new construction projects.
