Donate Tools

Do you have underused household tools that are cluttering up the basement, garden shed, or kitchen cupboards.

For tools with safety guard features, we request that they come equipped when you donate the tool. We aim to accept all quality donations and if we cannot utilize your donation as part of our inventory, we will make every effort to reuse or recycle it the best we see fit. 

Please drop off all portable tool donations during our opening hours where we will assess what we can accept.
