Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk to Collect Reusable Items at North Sea Transfer Station until Wednesday, November 24th
Councilwoman Julie Lofstad announced today that the Wednesday, November 24th will be the last day to drop off items at the North Sea Transfer Station for the Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk Reuse Program. The program will resume in March of 2022.
“Our Town residents really embraced this program,” said Councilwoman Lofstad. “I’m happy to report that we collected lots of usable items, which were kept out of landfills and supported affordable housing efforts.”
The Town of Southampton and Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk joined together in June of this year to launch the Partnership to Reuse Program at the North Sea Transfer. Town residents were able to drop off new or slightly used furniture, appliances, kitchen cabinets and building materials that were then resold at the Suffolk ReStore in Ronkonkoma, with proceeds supporting affordable housing projects.
The Habitat for Humanity Reuse truck will be collecting donations at the North Sea Transfer Station on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm, until November 24th. Commercial entities and contractors can participate by contacting Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk directly to arrange for off-site pick-ups.
