Cabinet recycling

Hi. I'm renovating our kitchen and removing the old cabinets (cream colored shaker-style doors) some time at the end of October/early November and we got a quote of $700 to remove the cabinets (includes re-plumbing of the sink after the new cabinets are installed) but the cabinets are brought to the dump. We find that to be a steep price and don't like the idea of bringing them to the dump because they're still good cabinets, they're just not our style. Does anyone know of someone who would come in to remove the cabinets and re-use or recycle them?

Good Afternoon Marlies,

What we have done in the past is ask the customer to post them on Kijjiji or some similar sell/barter web site for a price that is reasonable.

Take some pictures of them now before they are taken down. Then use these pictures for your web site posting. Have your contractor take them down and put them in your garage.

If you can get a couple of hundred dollars for them towards your renovation your that much further ahead.

If you need any further help Marlies, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi Marlies, If you have a Habitat for Humanity operation in the Ottawa area, you could donate them and they may come and take them out for you - don't know what their policy is about that. They will certainly pick them up. Contact info is 7 Enterprise Ave, Nepean - (613) 225-8400. They will sell them through their Restore operation to support their home building efforts.
