Residents recycle high-end kitchen parts for charity

Some homeowners in New Canaan who are remodeling their kitchens are catching a green wave by donating high-end kitchen components to charity instead of sending them to landfills.

Green Demolitions is the organization that?s helping them. Work crews transport granite countertops, cabinetry and appliances to a showroom in Black Rock where the parts are sold at rock-bottom prices to lucky buyers. The money from the sales goes to All Addicts Anonymous, which provides outreach to addicts.

?I think the biggest benefit I've heard from my clients is they very much want to do good things for the drug addiction program and for the environment,? Green Demolitions President Steve Feldman said.

The organization inspects all kitchens before the components may be donated. Feldman said they are evaluated for overall condition and what the kitchen is made of. Donors get a tax break for the value of the resale as well as a free, tidy one-day removal of their old kitchen.
