Recycling

10/09/13 at 01:27 PM | by Deb Witte

Incredible amounts of building material end up in area landfills. Such waste is costly as well as environmentally unacceptable.  Whenever we can we donate reusable materials from clients’ homes that are no longer wanted and needed as a result of their remodeling project to ReSTORE.  The Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity  ReSTORE, LLC. has been established as a self-sustaining fund raising entity to benefit Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity.   ReSTORE converts charitable donations of building materials into cash for use by Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity to construct simple, decent, affordable homes.  By doing so, they divert and recycle thousands of tons of usable material from being deposited into local landfills.
