What do we pick up?
We pick up all of the items on our accepted items list. However, we reserve the truck for pickups that meet the following requirements:
- The items are at ground level and in good condition
- You are located within our service area
- The items are large and require a truck to move
- You have a large quantity of items
Due to the cost of transportation, the staff required, and our goal of being diligent in how we use our resources to raise funds to support Habitat’s building projects, we must limit our donation pickups to items that meet these criteria. Photos of items you would like to donate are very helpful, and will help expedite the process. You can send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. To schedule a pickup please call (845) 565-1789, ext. 142.
We reserve the right to decline any donation that might be unsuitable for the ReStore or may pose a safety risk to our donation pick up team.
During winter months - we ask that you have your driveway/walkways shoveled and salted - we will be unable to pick up your donation if this requirement is not met.
