About

Do you have a passion for the environment? Are you a reliable recycler? Then Habitat’s ReStore wants to test your 'mettle’! Join the Habitat’s ReStore team as a Metal Recycler!

Some of our donated items cannot be sold to the public but recycled to keep them out of landfills. These items are sorted into the different metals by our Metal Recycler volunteers. Through our metal recycling program, we are able to raise more funds for the construction of Habitat houses in Milwaukee.

Typically, metal recycling volunteers will work up to 4 hours as their schedule allows. All volunteers will receive on-site training; use of hand tools is also involved.

Responsibilities:

  • Receiving and dismantling unsaleable donations
  • Identifying and sorting metals into appropriate containers
  • Breaking down metal donations for easy transport

Qualifications:

  • A basic knowledge of metal sorting
  • Willingness to work with diverse people
  • Previous metal recycling experience is preferred, but not required

Benefits:

  • Gain valuable work experience
  • Flexible schedule
  • Store discount (after 20 hours of volunteering)
  • Have a positive impact right here in Milwaukee County!

Staffed largely by volunteers, Habitat’s ReStores are eco-friendly locations to both donate and shop for home building supplies and furnishings. Habitat’s ReStores carry overstocked, discounted, new and used building materials donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals. The stores are open to the public with all items sold at a fraction of the retail cost. ReStore donations benefit Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity's mission of building simple, decent and affordable homes in partnership with families in need.
