  • Have all items boxed (if applicable), stacked and readily accessible.
  • Mark all items with a note that reads: “For Habitat for Humanity”.
  • Absolutely no hazardous waste, or general waste items will be accepted.
  • We are not able to haul-away trash or sort items that do not meet our criteria.
