Donate Useful Items to ReStore

 – By

Alaska Waste encourages everyone to consider donating useful household items to Habitat for Humanity ReStore to help keep reusable items out of the landfill.

ReStore keeps reusable items out of the waste stream, and money that is raised through ReStore sales benefit Habitat for Humanity home building programs and community improvement work.

If you’re undertaking a home remodeling project, or just cleaning out the garage and have appliances, furniture, flooring, or other items left over, please consider donating those items to ReStore and keeping them out of the local landfill.

Habitat for Humanity of Alaska ReStore donations can be dropped off at the Anchorage ReStore during their drop-off hours. Pick-up is available for large donations. Request for pick-ups are reviewed on a case by case basis to determine if the cost of pick-up can be recovered through the resell of the donation. Please call 907-743-8060 to schedule a pick-up, or for more information regarding pick-ups. You can also email a picture of the item with a description for approval.

Donations must be reusable, structurally sound and complete, cosmetically appealing, and sellable.
