In addition to recycling, an environmentally sustainable way of saving money on waste and disposal costs is to look for ways of donating set materials and props. Various non-profit organizations will accept donations of furniture, some clean lumber, large pieces of carpeting, doors, appliances, and windows among other materials. Not only will the donation of such materials insure their diversion from the landfill, but will also provide cheap materials to organizations that can put them to good use.
