Tax receipts may be issued for donations with a retail value greater than $150. The value is assessed and determined by our receiving staff.
3. Save on disposal fees
ReStore helps you avoid both the cost of transporting the items to the landfill and the dumping fees at the landfill, as well as reduce your environmental footprint by recycling the old household items.
4. Go green and give your stuff a second life
What a great feeling to know that your old furniture, appliances, building materials and other items may have an extended life in a new home instead of going straight to the landfill.
Many local families, DIYers and students come to the ReStore on a daily basis to find products like yours, that they can repurpose and turn them into new gems.
Plus, the ReStores diverted more than 2,000 tonnes of waste from local landfills last year. By donating your perfectly reusable household items, you’re giving them a second life and reducing your environmental footprint.
5. Help families through Habitat for Humanity
Not only does your donation have a great impact on the environment, but it’s also helping families in southern Alberta.
How? Proceeds from the ReStore go to Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta to help local families buy their first home through an affordable mortgage.

ReStore helps you save on the cost of storage fees, transportation, disposal and other expenses related to clearing your stuff out when you’re no longer able to pay rent for your storage unit.
