BuildBITS app and online market for unwanted building materials

Tuesday, 16 July, 2013 | Supplied by: BuildBITS

The BuildBITS app and online market allows tradespeople, renovators, home owners and businesses to sell excess building products that would typically be thrown in skip bins and contribute to landfill. Many high-quality products are often disposed of as waste, and the process is expensive as well as environmentally damaging. 

BuildBITS aims to mitigate this by providing a dedicated service to acquire building materials at low prices or for free and to monetise leftover items for extra cash, thus providing a cost-effective and eco-friendly disposal option. It is hoped that in the future, building projects can be built mainly from the business’s excess materials.

BuildBITS can be accessed via or downloaded as an app for Android or iPhone. Once the app is downloaded, the user simply takes a picture of the surplus products, enters a short description and a desired price, and the product appears for sale in the online marketplace. There are no commissions or fees for sellers and buyers, and all partners of the service receive official recognition and cross-linking opportunities on the website.
