How does the Hamilton ReStore help the environment?

The Hamilton ReStore implements several initiatives that not only help divert items from the landfill, but that also help promote recycling. The unfortunate truth is that many people and companies throw away items that are no longer of use to them, instead of attempting to find them a new home. Fortunately, the Hamilton ReStore gives companies and individuals an opportunity to donate their items for a good cause. In turn, the Hamilton ReStore typically diverts about 900 metric tons of waste, each year.

In addition to diverting items from landfill, we also implement a metal salvage program, collecting and stripping wire from old products or items not deemed fit for resale. This not only helps us bring in extra revenue—to support Habitat for Humanity Hamilton’s mission—but it also enables us to be environmentally friendly!
