To respond to the national call to reduce the amount of building materials that are overflowing in America's landfills, DiggersList.com was created by co-founders Matt Knox and Johnnie Munger as a unique fusion of free classifieds and community features that allow users to buy, sell and trade thousands of construction-related materials and supplies from tile and HVAC systems to roofing materials that were excess from construction projects or being discounted and blown out from suppliers. The site features more than 100 subcategories for items for sale, projects and services.

"Having excess leftover materials is a problem for almost every single construction project in the world. Every builder or DIY property owner would love to buy them at discounted prices," explains Matt Knox, CEO and Co-Founder of DiggersList.
