Donate to the ReStore

Your donations are vital to the success of Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph!

We accept donations of new/gently used/clean household items to the receiving doors at each of our three ReStores (click here for addresses) during our scheduled donation hours. Please check the list below for items we accept/do not accept.

We also offer free pickup service for large donations of items that are resalable at the ReStore ($100 + in ReStore value). (Please note: We do not pick up e-recycling or scrap metal unless you have $100+ in ReStore value already available for pickup.) Learn more about our recycling (e-recycling and scrap metal) and kitchen salvage programs.

To schedule our pickup service for your donation, please complete the form below or email dispatch@habitatwdg.ca. For pickup, it’s important that donations be easily accessible without the use of stairs (i.e. on the ground floor close to the front door, via elevator, at the front of the garage, or outdoors).
