Donation process

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.  

You can donate goods in person at our two stores  (Everett and Lynnwood) during our donation hours from Tuesday – Friday 10am – 3pm / Saturday 10am – 4pm. Please review the list below of items we do and do not accept prior to dropping off your donations. For questions on specific items, please contact your nearest Snohomish County Habitat Store.

For our local construction and business partners, please contact so that we can help you make your gift-in-kind donations as simple as possible. We can work with you to arrange one-time donations of excess material or establish long-term partnerships with recurring donations.

If you are unable to drop an item off at our Stores, or require salvaging, you can contact Second Use. A portion of proceeds from drop-off donations and salvaging goes to Habitat affiliates each month.

Thank you for your continued support of our Habitat Stores and our larger Habitat mission to serve our communities!
