Renovating Your Kitchen?
Don't Dump Those Cabinets! Donate Them!
It's easy! Before you start renovating, contact BIG!NYC and see if our Deconstruction Team can help you carefully disassemble your old kitchen cabinets and appliances. Just email photos of the cabinets, plumbing fixtures and/or appliances that you'd like to get rid of to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll set up a site visit and then schedule the decon. BIG!NYC's fully insured decon team will carefully remove the items, take them to our reuse centers, and give you a tax receipt for your donation. And then you are free to continue with your remodeling project, without worrying about disposing of your old cabinets, appliances, fixtures, etc!
Learn more about how Deconstruction can work for you from This Old House, featuring our friends at Eco Building Bargains in Mass.
