Habitat Restore Omaha Deconstruction Program - Helping the Community

Deconstruction Program 

Remodeling? Let us work with you and your contractor! Habitat ReStore staff will facilitate your deconstruction donation of salvageable materials with labor provided by either your contractor or ours. Your donated items will then be sold through Omaha’s Habitat ReStores with the proceeds going to build more Habitat homes in our community. 


Why Deconstruction? 

  • It’s free! Your donated materials may also be eligible for a tax deduction (contact your accountant with questions) 
  • It’s environmentally responsible. In 2021, there were 140 Deconstruction jobsites that had 210,000 cubic feet of items go to our ReStores and rehomed instead of the landfill. That’s approximately 2100 TONS of construction materials. 
  • It helps people in need. Proceeds from your donated items help build decent, affordable homes in our community
