Donate appliances to a Habitat ReStore near you
If you’ve made the decision to upgrade one or more appliances in your home and have no clue what to do with the old ones because you don’t want them collecting dust and taking up space. Donate to Habitat for Humanity and let our ReStores take them off your hands and help get rid of unwanted items while contributing to a worthy cause. Burlington, Mississauga, Milton and Orangeville ReStores are accepting appliance donations.
By donating to a Habitat ReStore, you are joining the efforts to help others and our environment. You are contributing to an organization that believes everyone deserves decent, safe and affordable housing. You can make a difference in the lives of individuals including families and it can all start with a donation.
We accept refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, ovens, stoves, microwave ovens and more. However, we cannot accept anything that is damaged, moldy, broken and dangerous. As long as what’s donated is in working condition, the ReStore is willing to accept.
A great benefit of donating appliances and more to Habitat HMD’s ReStores are that you help the less fortunate who can still use your appliances, you’ll receive a tax receipt for your kind deed and you reduce waste by keeping large items out of the landfill. Plus we offer free donation pick up!
Oftentimes appliances are thrown out to the curb for the local garbage collectors to collect them. Then they’re placed at a landfill where they will soon rust, leak chemicals into the groundwater, release harmful waste into the environment, then dangerous materials manage to decompose into the water we drink and refrigerators and air conditioners release gases that lead to air pollution. Therefore, since appliances are not biodegradable, they just sit and take up large amounts of space. Large appliances can all be easily recycled and donated to Habitat for Humanity ReStores. Just out of concern for the environment and the desire to help others, do not throw them in the dump!
Now, conversely, for people who are looking for affordable appliances, look no further than the ReStores in Burlington, Milton, Mississauga or Orangeville, as there are appliances there for sure! Buying brand new appliances might be expensive and you don’t need anything fancy, just as long as it gets the job done. The best option for you is purchasing affordable appliances at any of our ReStores. An extra bonus is that the ReStores sometimes also get new and unused appliances.
