Remodeling, cleaning, downsizing or just getting organized? Whatever your project, don’t let your extra items or materials end up in your local landfill. Habitat Stores divert hundreds of tons from landfills each year, accepting hard-to-dispose-of items including new and used furniture, appliances, home décor, tools and surplus building materials.
Our staff is here to make gift-in-kind donations as easy as possible for local businesses and construction companies. We can arrange one-time donations of excess material, or establish long-term partnerships with recurring donations.
You can donate goods in person at our stores. Donation hours are from 10 am to 2 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Please review the list of what we do and do not accept first.
