My church has over 100,000 new bricks left over from a building project that did not happen. We would like get rid of them . The supplier will not take them back.They are worth a lot of money.Any suggestions?

The market for the brick is not that strong. You apparently have about 200 pallets/units.

People have to want the color and texture and need enough quantity to make it worthwhile for you because you could be left with a smaller amount that will have less of a market.

You could even contact a utility/sewer contractor. They could be used for manhole construction/reconstruction if they meet the specs.

You might be better off finding a church or scholl that has a project coming up thate they could design them into.
