Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Stock Pile

The Stock Pile is a non-profit home improvement reuse store that saves new and gently used building materials from going to waste in dumpsters and landfills so they can be made available to northeast Ohio residents for a small handling fee of 1/3 of retail cost.

The Stock Pile’s goal is to improve substandard housing in Stark, Wayne, and Tuscarawas counties by connecting low-to-moderate income families and elderly or disabled individuals to low cost building supplies. We believe that by coming together as a community we can ensure everyone can improve their homes and improve their lives.

The Stock Pile is open to the public. If you qualify for a membership, you can save even more and take advantage of all of our member benefits.
