Free kitchen removal & salvage program


Getting ready to start a kitchen renovation or do another major renovation?

We’re here to help! You’ll save hundreds in contractor and waste disposal fees by having our salvage team remove your kitchen and other reusable items for FREE – and give you a tax receipt once it’s sold at one of our ReStores!

We have a team of skilled Habitat staff and volunteers who will carefully remove cupboards, islands, pantries, vanities, and appliances. They'll also cap all electrical and plumbing, sweep up and leave your place contractor-ready - all for FREE! (Note: Some kitchens may not qualify due to age, condition or construction. Additional donations can also be evaluated at time of kitchen removal.)

If you're a business owner renovating or closing down a store - our salvage team can also help you!
