Habitat For Humanity

Donate your gently used construction materials and household items to the ReStore. Visit Habitat-Utah.org to see the list of accepted items . ReStore is a Home Improvement ReUse Store – located at 6280 Silver Creek Drive – just off I-40 – that keeps thousands of tons of materials out of the waste stream, provides low-cost goods to the public, and generates revenues for Habitat’s affordable housing programs.

When replacing ight bulbs with LEDs, take old bulbs to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 6280 Silver Creek Drive. Summit Community Power Works is collecting the used bulbs - both incandescent and CFL.  CFL bulbs - which use less electricity than regular bulbs - will be available for low income families so they can help support SCPW’s county-wide mission to decrease the county's  use of electricity and help to win the $5 million Georgetown University Prize. For more information, go to scpw.org.
