Tim Raquet of Dexter, an employee of Habitat for Humanity, removes aluminum from a village-owned home. The removed pieces will be sold to benefit the organization.
“There’s a really nice ceiling fan and cabinets inside,” Tamoshunas said. Neither of the men were sure how much the items would net for the nonprofit organization, which sells reusable materials to benefit its programs.
“We just tear it apart,” Raquet said. “Other people put price tags on it.”
Allison Bishop, director of community development, said she contacted Habitat about the house as a way to reuse whatever the organization could find useful.
