Recycle at the Restore

Re-Opening Plan

As of May 20, all five area ReStores are back open to the public with health and safety precautions. All shoppers and staff must wear a mask and maintain social distancing. The number of customers permitted at one time in the stores will be limited as per Department of Health guidelines. Additional cleaning protocols have been implemented. We ask that the first hour of business (9 – 10 am) be reserved for the elderly and those in high-risk health categories. Volunteers will not be working in the stores at this time.

Donations of gently new and used building materials, home goods, furniture, and working appliances will be during open store hours. Donation pick-ups will resume the week of May 18 for large items that cannot be easily dropped off at a store location. We look forward to your continued support of Habitat for Humanity and hope that you will support us in keeping our ReStore operations safe for donors, customers, and employees. Thank you for your patience!

Along with providing this valuable service to the community, Habitat for Humanity ReStores are diverting thousands of tons of usable items from local landfills by giving them a second life. Based on the sanitation industry’s standard formula for calculating how much material is being diverted, HFHGC ReStores diverted approximately 1,419 tons of material . . . over 2.8 million pounds last year — up over 155 tons from the previous year!
