Kitchen Cabinet Removal

Are you remodeling your kitchen but aren’t sure what to do with your old cabinets?

Habitat Wake ReStores can remove your existing kitchen cabinets and take them to the ReStore. You’ll receive a tax donation, and proceeds from your cabinets will support Habitat Wake’s mission to build safe, affordable homes in Wake County.  

Our professionally trained crew will:

  • Remove kitchen cabinets, countertops and appliances.

  • Disconnect plumbing and electrical where appropriate.

  • Inventory salvaged materials and provide a receipt for your tax records.

  • Dispose of all acceptable debris and waste.

  • Transport salvaged materials to the Habitat Wake ReStores for resale.

Other details:

  • There is a $500 service fee for kitchen cabinet removal to help cover our cost of operations. Further work may require additional fees.

  • Cabinet removal takes five to eight hours and is performed by our full-time staff.

  • Kitchen cabinet removals are scheduled Monday through Friday.

  • If you have other items you would like to donate to Habitat Wake, please inform the staff prior to your project date. It is likely that items can be picked up at the same time.


  • Cabinets must have been built and installed after 1980. You can check the age of your home here.

  • We are not able to accept resurfaced cabinets.

  • Cabinets must be within Wake County.

  • Because of staffing and equipment restraints, we sometimes must turn down projects in order to maximize the program’s contribution to Habitat Wake’s mission, which is to build affordable homes in partnership with Wake County families, donors and volunteers. .
