2. Schedule a FREE donation pick-up.

For your larger or multi-item donations, request a donation pick-up (garage or driveway) with our easy online donation form. We receive a high number of requests for donation pick-ups and therefore not all will qualify for the service. We will notify you once we have reviewed your submission.

While the ReStore is happy to accept good quality, new and gently-used materials, there are times when we cannot accept certain items due to age, condition, space, and marketability. 

  • "This is my go-to place for obscure parts and items. I despise throwing good items and supplies in the garbage simply because I no longer have a use for them. I'm also thrifty...OK cheap. I love getting deals here on good quality, clean renovation supply items, and appliances. Staff are friendly, helpful and offer imaginative suggestions on how to repurpose surplus materials."
