Contractors and do-it-yourself home remodelers are being reminded that not all of their excess materials need to go to the landfill. While some materials may not be salvaged, the Door County Habitat for Humanity accepts most construction materials if in good shape and plentiful in supply like tile, lumber, sub-floors, and drywall. Door County Habitat for Humanity ReStore Manager Megan Dietz says construction materials for resale have grown into a big part of their operation.
As a non-profit, construction materials donated to the ReStore can qualify for a tax reduction. Door County Habitat for Humanity’s Restore has saved over 20 tons of construction materials, furniture, and appliances from landfills.
