Habitat urgently needing unwanted materials


Established in 1994, Habitat has built 84 homes in Auckland and nearly 400 across New Zealand.
Based at 8 Ormiston Road, Otara, Habitat Auckland’s ReStore sells new and used goods and building materials to the public. If you have any unwanted materials such as doors, windows, skirting, beams, roof tiles or fixtures and fittings please let Habitat know.

Some materials will be used on their builds and renovations while others will be sold on to the public. All proceeds support Habitat’s building programmes, and it is also a great way of keeping unwanted materials out of landfill or clogging up your yard.
Skilled tradesman are also able to help as and when they can on Habitat’s home renovation and repair project A Brush with Kindness.

This project helps home owners who, through infirmity or other circumstances, cannot continue or afford to maintain their homes.
These projects are usually for the elderly and disabled, and include rewiring, fitting new bathrooms, retrofitting insulation and securing the property.

Although much of the work is completed by willing volunteers, Habitat also requires skilled tradesmen who can donate the occasional day at their convenience to complete the necessary trade work.

If you are able to support either of the above projects, please contact resource manager Conrad LaPointe on 09 271 3357, or [email protected].
