Building Communities through Deconstruction

What is Deconstruction?

Habitat Central Arizona utilizes various programs to support our communities and raise funds for our mission. One such program is our Deconstruction Services, also known as “Decon”.  The Habitat Deconstruction Service enable homeowners to offset their remodeling costs by taking a green -demolition approach to their renovations. Decon is a no-cost solution to remove kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, appliances, fixtures, and doors from a space before remodel or renovation.

The Process

If you are in the process of remodeling don’t waste time, money, or your goods! Contact our deconstruction services here. Our team will help identify materials and items suitable for reuse. Once booked, our skilled Deconstruction crew will come out and remove your items. Upon removal, salvaged items are donated to local Habitat ReStores and sold to support Habitat’s ongoing Mission. Donors receive a tax receipt for their donation and that’s it!

Why? Diverting from Landfills

Remodeling can feel wasteful when things are still in good
condition. Every year, more and more items are getting thrown into our
landfills. Our Habitat ReStores are not only supporting our core mission, but also work to keep items out of our local landfills. The American Institute of Architects estimates that anywhere between 25 to 40 percent of the waste produced by the U.S is building-related waste. Rather than throwing out perfectly good items, you can donate them to a Habitat ReStore! This will keep more items out landfills, supports your community, and provides gently used goods to others at a great price.
