Kitchen Cabinet Program

3 way to donate

  • Drop off at a store (free + tax receipt if requested)
  • Curbside pick up (free + tax receipt issued)
  • Kitchen removal crew (Service disconnect fee if not completed by homeowner, free service + tax receipt issued)

We accept kitchen cabinets in clean, unbroken state with doors and hardware included. Custom trips and countertops will also be removed. Preferred kitchens are joined cabinets, less than 20 years old and are easily accessible. Built in kitchens can be difficult and require on-site inspections prior to acceptance.

Our removal crew consists of Habitat employees and skilled volunteers. Any power, water or gas disconnects and capping will be done by licensed tradesman at or below market rate. Your kitchen space will be left contractor ready, meanings floors will be swept and any extra refuse from the removal has been taken away giving your contractor a fresh space to work with. We will complete pre and post inspections with the donor to ensure your satisfaction.

How long does it take?

A typical kitchen can be removed in four hours or less providing disconnects have been completed.

What happens to my old kitchen?

Your donated kitchen will be taken to one of the Okanagan ReStores and be sold to a new home for others to enjoy, thus keeping it out of the landfill.

How much will the tax credit be for?

This depends on the quality and size of the kitchen. We will issue a tax receipt based on the value we will resell it for. We can give an accurate estimate based on photos and inspections prior to removal.

What else will we accept?

We also accept and remove all major appliances kitchens sink and taps, standard range hoods if required to remove cabinets. We will also accept bathroom, laundry cabinets as well provided they have been disconnected by the homeowner prior to arrival of the removal crew. If your home is going through major renovations, we may be able to assist in additional ways and accept doors, standard windows and other building products.
