Local drop-off for Habitat for Humanity donations April 28

Are you thinking about Spring Cleaning? Do you have some household items you no longer need? The Bay Village Green Team has arranged an easy way to donate your usable furniture, building materials, fixtures, tools, yard items and MORE!

Donating your usable household items provides 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 through home construction and rehabilitation. The money is used to purchase building materials to make home ownership a dream for deserving families.

Bring your donation items to the Bay Village Police Department parking lot, 28000 Wolf Rd. on Saturday, April 28 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

If you have large items, you can also arrange for home pick-up by contacting Habitat directly at 216-429-3631, ext. 238, prior to April 28.

You can donate any usable household items – both indoor and outdoor items. Just about anything from your home is accepted as long as it is in good, workable condition.

Items Accepted: Furniture (indoor or outdoor),  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 refrigerator.

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 through Friday.

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