The DuPage ReStore
DuPage Habitat for Humanity introduces its brand new ReStore, a facility dedicated to helping the environment by repurposing household items and construction materials that would otherwise be thrown out and end up in a landfill. Habitat for Humanity ReStore’s main goal is to reuse, recycle and repurpose.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore collects, examines and sorts donated items and then sells these materials to the general public at greatly reduced prices. All profit from the sales funds the DuPage Habitat mission.
Every year Illinois landfills accumulate over 15 million tons of waste, which is then replaced by new products. DuPage Habitat for Humanity ReStore will give the public an opportunity to donate usable products to be resold at reduced prices to homeowners and contractors. Since July of 2011, the DuPage ReStore has diverted 720 tons of waste from Illinois land fills.
