Help Turn your E-waste into Homes for Habitat!

Habitat NCR ReStore to Launch E-Waste Program on September 8
Give your old electronics an afterlife! On Saturday, September 8, 2012, Habitat NCR will hold the launch of its electronic waste program at our west ReStore, located at 7 Enterprise Ave.

Drop off your old electronics between 10 a.m. and 5:50 p.m. and stay for the festivities, including an official kick-off, ReStore coupons, contests and the unveiling of an e-waste sculpture created by one of our talented volunteers.

The ReStores accept electronic waste year-round, along with new and gently used renovation and building materials and home décor items from retailers, manufacturers, contractors, renovators and the general public. Every purchase made at the ReStores and the e-waste product collected from the OES program supports Habitat NCR as it helps local families achieve the dream of homeownership.
