Question Where can I get coroplast?

Okay, I see it mentioned everywhere for grill block's, air dams, etc. However, I can't seem to find a place where I can get it.

Where does everyone get theirs?

You can get it for FREE at your local recycling center. Mine has a huge stockpile of the stuff.
The lady said " take all you want ! "

It will have stuff printed on it, but you can just paint over it. Try just after elections. There is tons of the stuff.

Shucks. We'll mostly have to wait for mid-November for the free stuff. At least here in the good ol' U.S.A.

Not really - there's piles of the stuff still left over. It's not just elections that produce these signs - mine advertise real estate for sale.

FWIW, the 1/8" stuff in 4x8 sheets is just over $11 locally. I don't want to discourage recycling, but if a person needs a large sheet, it's obviously not a budget breaker.

People leave them stuck to telephone poles where I live. They have writing on them but they're free for the taking. ;-)

Utility companies also consider it a favor when said signs are removed from their poles. (It's a climbing hazard to workers.) Too bad nobody ever removes the nails!
