A warm thank you to all our wonderful partners.
Everything including the kitchen sink!
Habitat for Humanity Auckland and Junk Run have been strong strategic partners since 2010.
The award winning Junk Run team led by CEO Fionna Gotts (pictured above) has been quietly championing a waste revolution, by avoiding landfill and the dump wherever possible, flipping the traditional waste collection model on its head. They collect unwanted materials from construction, commercial and residential customers and then transforms these items into resources by sorting and redistributing them for reuse or repurposing, through charities like ours.
Over the past nearly 10 years Junk Run has donated well over 300,000 tonnes of good quality furniture, household items and lots of perfectly good building materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfill to us here at Habitat for Humanity. These items get sorted and on sold through our 5 Auckland ReStore locations and used for our building projects. Junk Run has learned exactly the type of things that we need and want, and they regularly bring us “truckloads” of fabulous items (including the kitchen sinks) that their trained “Junk Runners” have hand separated and kept aside for us. We love how the team always thinks of us and repurposes items regularly from building sites- saving us having to do lots of pick-ups.
Earlier this year the Junk Run team assisted our Operations Manager, Annie, shift into a new ReStore location in Pukekohe- offering their trucks and staff for the day which was a fantastic help. Over the years as well as the valuable items we have been able to resell they have also donated retail shop cabinets and shelving which have been helpful for our stores.
So if you need any old junk or rubbish removed at home, you are downsizing or clearing an estate or you are managing a construction site - ring Junk Run as they do things differently. They can come and help send your junk to a better place- and support us at the same time!
