Sinks

Donate or Sell if Usable Landfill, Transfer Station, or Curbside Collection

Sell or Donate

If the sink is still in usable condition, consider donating it. To find local donation locations, check out the NYS Reuse Locator Map. Call ahead to confirm if the donation site accepts sinks, which may be more common with ReStores.

Non-Metal Sinks Are Garbage

Porcelain, plastic and fiberglass sinks can be disposed of with garbage. If they are too large for your curbside bin, dispose of them with bulky items at the landfill.

Metal Sinks Are Scrap Metal

Metal sinks can be disposed of with scrap metal. To prepare for disposal, remove non-metal pieces.

Ways to Reuse

Repurpose Your Sink

If you’re upgrading a sink, relocate your old one. Sinks can also be helpful in laundry rooms and mudrooms, as well as outdoor kitchens and potting tables as a utility sink. You could also make a children’s play sink or sensory table.

Create an Outdoor Planter

Porcelain sinks make beautiful outdoor planters. Check out these ideas from Pinterest for inspiration.

Donate Gently-Used Sinks

If your sink is in good condition, you can donate it to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore location. These reuse stores will give your gently-used sink another chance in a new home. Call ahead before stopping by to confirm they are accepting donations.

Sell Your Old Sink

If your sink is in usable condition, try selling or donating it through Nextdoor, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist or OfferUp.
