Getting Ready to Renovate Your Kitchen?
Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga offers FREE kitchen deconstruction and removal! Our team of expert staff and volunteers guide you through the process, free of charge, and will provide you with a tax receipt for your kitchen donation!
Why don't we charge a fee? Because we sell your kitchen in our ReStore, a social enterprise that helps us generate revenue and build homes in our local community.
If you live in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton, Mississauga or Oakville, then you've come to the right place! Learn more about our program and how it works below.

Here's How it Works
Get in touch by completing the online form provided below. Be prepared to provide detailed information about your kitchen, including photos.
If your kitchen looks like something we can accept, we'll contact you to schedule an in-home assessment.
We'll schedule a date and time with you to complete your kitchen deconstruction, and provide you with a tax-receipt estimate.
We'll show up at your doorstep and have your kitchen removed in under 4 hours. We'll even issue your digital tax receipt before we leave your home.
Tax Receipt Information
We issue tax receipts if a total donation exceeds $100. We tax receipt all items of value that are donated. The value is based on a Standard Pricing Guide that we follow, which is based on the highest value we believe we can sell your donations in our ReStores. That value is assessed by one of our staff who is trained in such appraisal of donations. From there, the accounting department works on issuing the Tax Receipt which you can expect to see within 3 MONTHS of donation date. If any questions or concerns arise after receiving the tax receipt, please feel free to contact us.
Ready to Start?
We've Made it Easy
Need your old kitchen or bathroom gone? Leave the heavy lifting to us. We'll deconstruct and remove it for FREE, then we'll give you a tax receipt for the value of your kitchen and bathroom donations. Sound like a sweet deal?
Is your kitchen or bathroom already deconstructed, or are you able to complete the deconstruction yourself? As long as you're careful with deconstruction and the kitchen or bathroom is not damaged during the process, we'll pick it up from your garage for free and provide you with a tax receipt.
