Donate metal waste


Turn your old scrap metal into homes for Habitat.
Don’t dump it. Donate it!

Our ReStores provide a free metal recycling program that raises funds to build Habitat homes by collecting your scrap metal.
With the help of individuals and businesses, our ReStores divert tons of metal waste from our landfills by ensuring it is responsibly recycled. We work with local companies that recycle these items and Habitat for Humanity ReStores receive payment for the collection of metal waste which is then used to help build homes for families across Niagara.
