In February, HOC warehouse staff began collecting unused, overstock, items to donate to Habitat for Humanity. Staff at the East Deer Park office collected a variety of items, including plumbing equipment and fixtures, surplus electrical and HVAC equipment, and miscellaneous building materials. Items were delivered to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Maryland. By delivering to Habitat for Humanity, HOC diverted over two tons of materials from local landfills. This partnership is in furtherance of the Agency’s focus on waste reduction and environmentally friendly practices. Additionally, all proceeds from Habitat for Humanity ReStore are used to fund the building of affordable housing in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.
