AJ Madison partners with Habitat for Humanity giving old appliances a second chance

What happens to your old appliances when you replace them?

There are many benefits of replacing your appliances. Improving the look at your kitchen, saving money on utilities, and taking advantage of the newest features are just some of the many reasons customers come to AJ Madison. If you are in the market to buy new applianes, you're probably wondering what happens to your old appliances when you opt for our haul-away service? If you're feeling reluctant to part with your old appliances because you don't want your old (and sometimes functional) appliances to wind up in a landfill, no need to worry. At AJ Madison, we saw a tremendous opportunity to give old appliances a second chance!

When you buy appliances from AJ Madison, our comprehensive haul-away service donates your old appliances to Habitat for Humanity. The donated appliances are either reconditioned or recycled. So now you can replace your old appliances with peace of mind. You’re parting with your old appliances responsibly, and in some cases, your old appliances could benefit a local family in need!

Habitat for Humanity

It’s been nearly three years since AJ Madison kick-started this program. The first step was to modify the appliance haul-away service, which has long offered the convenient removal of old customer appliances for new purchases. While still removing all old appliances in any condition, AJ Madison will now donate those that are lightly used or repairable to Habitat NYC’s ReStore.

Habitat for Humanity's ReStore

Habitat for Humanity operates over 1,000 ReStores across the country, national nonprofit donation centers selling new and gently used furniture, appliances, building materials and more to the public at a discounted price. The sales revenue generated from ReStores goes towards Habitat for Humanity’s funding to build new homes in the local community and around the world.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore

The Habitat for Humanity’s New York City ReStore, sells home products to the public with proceeds benefitting Habitat NYC’s mission: to transform lives and communities by building and preserving quality, affordable homes with families in need.

Habitat for Humanity’s New York City ReStore, through which AJ Madison recycles its eligible haul-away product, is located in Queens with over 20,000 square feet of space perfectly suited for appliances.

We are so grateful for the generous partnership of AJ Madison. By donating their products to our ReStore, AJ Madison is giving budget-conscious New Yorkers the chance to own high-quality appliances at accessible prices, and helping to divert tons of waste from landfills. They are also contributing to our mission to build and preserve safe, decent and affordable housing for ownership by our neighbors in need.
Karen Haycox, CEO of Habitat for Humanity New York City

A growing partnership

In addition to sourcing donations through its haul-away service, AJ Madison is working with its trade designer program and robust network of builders and contractors to increase their impact. The brand is leveraging these connections to recycle not only appliances but also gently used cabinetry or other items from kitchen remodels through the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. AJ Madison also plans to extend to the program to a national level in the future, using its local haul-away services and the Habitat for Humanity ReStores in markets across the country.

Giving back to the community is at the core of our AJ Madison culture. We’re thrilled to breathe new life into gently used appliances through eco-friendly recycling to benefit Habitat for Humanity NYC instead of ending up in a landfill. It’s a win-win for everyone – less waste, accessible, affordable appliances for every budget and funding to build new homes in the local community.
Michael Gross, President, AJ Madison

AJ Madison’s appliance recycling program and partnership with Habitat NYC further solidifies the brand’s dedication to their local New York community, striving to build a stronger, greener, and more affordable city for all.
