The ReStore Mission
The Waco Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a building materials recycling center that provides a sustainable source of income to Waco Habitat for Humanity. The store accepts material donations from a variety of sources and uses new materials whenever possible in the construction of Habitat homes. The balance is sold to the public at greatly reduced prices. The ReStore’s impact can be seen in three ways: the impact on the community, the impact on Waco Habitat for Humanity, and the impact on the environment.
What does the ReStore do for the community?
- Offers the public a diverse selection of building materials at greatly reduced prices.
- Serves as a community recycling center, preventing unnecessary dumping into landfills.
- Facilitates neighborhood revitalization by offering affordably priced materials.
- Provides meaningful community service and volunteer opportunities
- Partners with the City of Waco to help further its environmental initiatives.
What does the ReStore do for Habitat for Humanity?
- Provides sustainable means of funding for Waco Habitat for Humanity, enabling our financial donors to give directly and fully to our construction programs.
- Provides an alternate source for new building materials for Habitat homes.
What does the ReStore do for the environment?
- Works with City of Waco Solid Waste Services to facilitate their household hazardous waste disposal events.
- Diverts tens of thousands of pounds of resellable donations otherwise bound for Waco’s waste facilities.
- Works with Midlothian Glass, Commercial Metals Company, and Sunbright to recycle tens of thousands of pounds of glass, metals, and cardboard, diverting this material from Waco’s waste facilities.
- Decreases its impact on the environment by generating part of its own electricity, using solar panels made available by a grant from the Green Mountain Energy Sun Club. To see a live graph of our electricity usage and how much energy our panel is creating, click here.
