Donations are the lifeblood of every Habitat ReStore and Habitat Store. When receiving donations, it is imperative to have a clear understanding what can be safely or legally taken for resale.
Certain donations can pose health and safety risks. In addition to hazardous items, it is important to be aware of items that may be illegal to resell or that may pose a risk to Habitat’s reputation. Without a clear understanding of regulations and potential legal implications, affiliates may unknowingly place themselves in a tenuous position.
