Donate old electronics


Turn your old electronics into homes for Habitat for Humanity Niagara. Don’t dump it. Donate it!

Our ReStores provide a free recycling program that raises funds to build Habitat homes by collecting your unwanted electronics.

All Niagara ReStores and its electronic recycling partner work with the Ontario Electronic Stewardship, an industry led, not-for-profit organization that operates the regulated recycling program in Ontario. They ensure that end-of-life electronics are handled in a safe and environmentally-sound manner.

With the help of individuals and businesses, our ReStores divert tons of electronic waste (e-waste) from our landfills by ensuring it is responsibly recycled. We work with local companies that recycle these items and Habitat for Humanity ReStores receive payment for the collection of e-waste which is then used to help build homes for families across Niagara.
