Planning a renovation? Looking to get rid of an old appliance or outdated kitchen cabinets? This upcoming spring / summer is the perfect time to do just that. Here are some ideas on kitchen renovation or if you’re very visual, just get inspired by these photos on Pinterest. When renovating your home, there are lots of things you could do in these situations — sell an item online, trash it, opt for demolition and pay labour and dumping with your contractor, use a consignment store, store it in your basement or leave it on the end of your driveway. But with Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin (Habitat HMD), there’s a better way to get rid of unwanted items through its Kitchen Deconstruction Program.
Let Habitat HMD help you get rid of your kitchen cabinetry, appliances, doors, vanities, and MANY other items! At Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin, we provide a completely free kitchen removal service. We’ll take everything and the kitchen sink.
When you choose to have your kitchen removal with us, our volunteer team will come to your house or place of business at a prearranged time. The donation process includes dismantling your kitchen including cabinets, furnishings, built-in items, shelving and appliances. Sit back and relax as our professional team deconstructs your kitchen, and leaves you with a brand new space to renovate.
But what is deconstruction, exactly? Habitat.org defines it as “the process of systematically dismantling all or part of a building or house piece-by-piece so that most of the resulting materials can be recycled, repurposed or reused.” In other words, when we’re not building homes, we’re dismantling rooms like kitchens, all in the name of making a difference in our local community.
When you donate to Habitat Halton-Mississauga’s free kitchen removal program, you will receive a charitable tax receipt based on the resale value of your donated products. Your donation will be sold as product in one of our ReStores to create funds to contribute to our efforts to build safe and affordable housing for local families.
You can schedule your pickup by filling out the kitchen deconstruction form on our website. You can also email [email protected] or call us at 905-828-0987 ext. 238. If you haven’t heard from us within two business days, give us a call — we strive to respond to all requests in under one business day during our operating hours, 9-5 on Monday to Friday. Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga-Dufferin serves the regions of Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville, Milton, Halton Hills, Georgetown, and Orangeville. Schedule your pickup with us today!
Deconstruction isn’t just a great way to get your kitchen renovation done. It’s also an alternative to throwing out your trash; deconstruction diverts waste from clogged landfills, and gets rid of your old stuff in an environmentally friendly way. Because products are recycled through being sold in one of Habitat for Humanity’s many ReStore locations, deconstruction have also been called “green demolition.”
Deconstructing with Habitat is also completely free, meaning you can offset the costs of your renovations while earning a tax receipt for your donation of the kitchen cabinets and other items. The charitable tax receipt is for the estimated resale value of your donated items. Not only do you gain this receipt, but you also save money on labour costs since Habitat’s kitchen removal program is completely, 100% free. You can also plow back your savings on the kitchen renovation or other home improvement items on your wish list.
The kitchens deconstructed by Habitat are sold in our ReStores, so you can feel good about donating your kitchen cabinets, doors and other items. The proceeds from the sale of deconstructed items and kitchens in our ReStores go directly back into our projects to build safe, decent and affordable homes for those in need right here in our community. Your kitchen deconstruction might be free for you, but the funds from selling products in a Habitat ReStore can help ensure a better future for a local family.
You can also feel good about saving waste from going to a landfill by recycling it and giving it a new purpose. When you deconstruct with Habitat, your wallet, the earth and local residents in need will all benefit.
If you’re located outside of the regions/areas we serve (which are Halton Region – includes Burlington, Halton Hills – including Acton and Georgetown, Milton, and Oakville, the City of Mississauga and parts of Orangeville in Dufferin County), you can take a look at other such as Habitat for Humanity GTA (areas of Toronto, Brampton-Caledon and York Region). Likewise, if you’re further West or Northwest of Halton, feel free to contact Habitat for Humanity Hamilton or Habitat for Humanity Heartland as these other Habitat affiliates offer similar kitchen deconstruction programs.
