Habitat for Humanity drop-off Sept. 17 at BVPD

The Bay Village Green Team has arranged for another Habitat for Humanity drop-off at the Bay Village Police Department parking lot, 28000 Wolf Rd., on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Donate your usable items and provide direct benefits to our local economy. Your donations are sold to other area residents through the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and the proceeds support Habitat's mission to eliminate poverty housing through home construction and rehabilitation. The money is used to purchase building materials to make home ownership a dream for deserving families. 

The Greater Cleveland ReStore is one of the largest reuse and recycle centers in Cuyahoga County. Not only does your donated item get reused, thousands of tons of usable materials are diverted from the local landfill in Oberlin.

If you have large items, you can also arrange for home pick up by contacting Jerry Jarc at 440-823-4579 prior to Sept. 17.

Items accepted: furniture, building supplies (windows, doors, kitchen and bath cabinets, lighting fixtures, sinks, tubs, showers, plumbing/electric/HVAC items, lumber, tile, full rolls of wallpaper), tools (hand, power, yard), landscaping items, and MORE. Items must be in good, usable condition. Items can be as small as cabinet handles or as large as a Jacuzzi.

Items NOT accepted: Mattresses, paint, clothing.

If you are planning to remodel in the future... donate your old cabinets, sinks, hardware, etc., by calling 216-429-3631 or have your remodeling contractor call.

You can also drop off items directly at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 2110 W. 110th St., Cleveland, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Tuesday-Friday. Visit www.clevelandrestore.org for details.

Donations to the ReStore come from a variety of sources: homeowners, contractors, Habitat salvage crew, independent salvage, demolition/deconstruction, retail outlets, manufacturers and tool drives.

The donations are prepared for sale to the public. All items are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
