10 reasons to Reduce, ‘ReStore,’ Recycle
May 5, 2016, StoryStudio, San Francisco Gate
In 2014, Californians sent 31.2 million tons of material (that’s 4.5 pounds per person per day) into landfills. That’s a lot of trash! To help California reach its goal of recycling 75 percent of its waste by 2020, step up your recycling efforts by donating household items you don’t use. You probably have a favorite place to donate clothing, but what about furniture, pottery, and yard decor? There’s a place for that. Do you have leftover flooring and appliances from a recent home remodel? You can donate those too. The Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts construction and home-related items. Its multiple Bay Area locations—including Oakland, San Jose, Santa Clara, and Concord—resell these items at a deep discount, thus diverting tons of material from the landfill. Last year alone, Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley diverted 3,000 tons of reusable materials from landfills.
