Habitat for Humanity of Wake County offers two options for deconstruction services:
All materials salvaged from a deconstruction project are taken to the Habitat Wake County Restores (locations in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Wake Forest, and Glenwood Avenue) where they are resold to the general public. Proceeds from these sales help support the building of safe, affordable homes in Wake County.
Why donate through the Habitat Wake ReStore deconstruction program?
- Your donation helps supports Habitat Wake’s mission to build affordable homes in Wake County in partnership with hardworking families.
- The value of material donated is eligible for a tax deduction.
- Deconstruction is a cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to dismantle residential structures while extending the life of the materials. Rather than going to the landfill, salvaged materials will find a second life through the ReStores.
- The value of your donated material often exceeds the cost of the project.
- Deconstruction can salvage up to 85% of the building’s material for reuse or recycling.
- In 2016, Habitat Wake Decon Team removed 75 kitchens, fully deconstructed 60 residential homes, and stripped out 20 homes.
