We are huge recyclers. We take so many things. Check out our list. If you have a group, use our collection calendar all year long! We can always use your no-longer-wanted pantry food to stock our food bags. And we have wish lists on Amazon to round out what we can't get reliably.
We are making a change to clothing recycling. We need sizes on everything. Dealing with items with no sizes is not fruitful for us. You can write it on indelibly before drop-off. You know the size better than we do! Help us save valuable time and avoid waste in this way!
New! Direct Access to our inventory list!
The inventory system shows amounts needed urgently as well as amounts we need to stock up on regularly kept items. Not everything is here yet but it will be!
We're excited to announce these three ways to help out as a family, a group, or an individual. These can be done from afar and shipped or dropped off:

Please do not request delivery outside these times. Ring our back doorbell, but please be patient if we are with clients at our front gate.
We'll ask you to fill a form for each drop-by so our team working remotely can complete our necessary records. We provide email receipts.
