8 things to Donate When Renovating



If anything is a constant in home improvement, it’s the trash. Home improvement projects tend to leave behind plenty of sawdust, screws and scraps of wood.


Donating your renovation materials keeps functional — and often desirable — items out of the landfill. Other renovators get the materials they need for their projects, and you get to help others while getting rid of your trash. Our ReStores provide donation pickup services, and your donations may qualify for a tax deduction. Donating is a win-win situation!

1. Sinks, toilets and bathtubs

Donating is a great way to keep these bulky items out of the landfill. If you’re donating a bathtub or sink, make sure that they are not stained and do not have chips in the porcelain. If you are remodeling an older bathroom, your vintage fixtures will be surprisingly popular at the local architectural salvage store.
