Donate and SAVE during Waste Reduction Week

When you donate your scrap metal or old electronics to our Habitat for Humanity ReStores between October 21 - 26 you’ll receive a special coupon to save money on your next ReStore purchase!

Waste Reduction Week in Canada starts on the third Monday of October each year and focusses solely on the principles of circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. The program’s message is to “take action” to empower Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices – and we’re sweetening the pot by giving our customers a special coupon when they donate their unwanted metal or electronic waste (e-waste) during Waste Reduction Week!

With the help of individuals and businesses, our ReStores divert tons of electronic and metal 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 metal and e- waste which is then used to help build homes for families across Niagara.

Don’t dump it – donate it!

Now’s the time to clear out that old computer, stereo equipment, old appliances and metal scrap that have been sitting around your house – and you’ll get a special ReStore coupon as a thank you for your donation! Plus you’ll be helping to support local families by building safe, decent and affordable homes across Niagara.
