Thinking about a remodeling project?

Well think no further than our Deconstruction Service. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls can help you salvage and save your gently used building materials while supporting the local Sioux Falls community. 

Jason, our deconstruction coordinator, and his team of skilled volunteers will work with you to remove any salvageable or reusable items from your home or business. Rather than letting them go the landfill the salvageable and gently used items find a second home through the Habitat ReStore. Proceeds from your gently used items will help continue Habitat for Humanity’s work of building affordable homes for hardworking families. 

What is Deconstruction?

Deconstruction is the hand salvage of materials removed carefully for reuse and recycling. This technique reduces the disposal of materials into the landfill and provides materials for the Habitat ReStore to sell. Deconstruction diverts demolition waste from the landfill and reuses these valuable building materials. Developers and construction companies typically look at buildings located on property slated for development as a costly, unavoidable annoyance. Up until now, developers and construction companies had little choice when it came to removing these buildings. Deconstruction provides a smart alternative and option for maintaining our resources.

What is the Benefit of Deconstruction?

Items donated to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls ReStore may be deductible for income tax purposes at their current market value. Additionally, by having Habitat deconstruct items from your home, you are saving money on certain aspects of demolition, dumpster costs and diverting waste from landfills.


1. The property owner contacts the Sioux Falls Habitat for Humanity ReStore to offer their property for deconstruction.

2. The first consideration of the property is decided over the telephone with an address provided.

3. Once it is established that there is product or material appropriate for salvage by the ReStore, a time is set for Deconstruction Coordinator Jason to meet with the property owner and conduct a walk-through of the site.

4. After it is determined that the project is viable, an agreement is made between the ReStore and property owner with regard to access to the property, access of electricity and bathrooms, materials to be salvaged and a timeline.

5. Jason will then schedule tools, trucks and a team to begin the deconstruction of the property.
