Don't Just Toss It In The Trash
Got some leftover building materials from a recent remodeling or other project? Is it just taking up space?
Don't put those materials in the trash. Someone else can use them. You can donate your old, but still-usable building materials through the Habitat ReStore program operated by Habitat for Humanity, the nonprofit organization that has built 225,000 homes around the world for low-income families. The local ReStore is located at:
Habitat for Humanity ReStore
4701 Deramus Avenue
Kansas City, Missouri 64120-1101
Across the country, Habitat ReStore retailers sell donated, good-quality used and surplus building materials at a fraction of retail prices. Proceeds from ReStores help local Habitat for Humanity affiliates fund the construction of Habitat houses within the community.
With your donation, you will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
Donating building materials to an organization like Habitat for Humanity is the better, more earth-friendly option to letting these materials wind up in a landfill.
