Most-needed items: We continue to get requests for body wash but we have plenty of soap. We have lots of cereal but limited shelf stable milk. We have run out of ready rice for camping but have plenty of other items. We have limited fresh fruit and could use bananas, grapes and peaches, but we have apples and oranges. We are running short of summer dresses—they are very popular now. We don’t have any more cat food but plenty of dog food. We are getting asked for men’s tank-tops but we can only offer do-it-yourself for now. We're also looking for large men's underwear. Updated: 8/31/2020
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! Our food recovery network is vast, but we can always use your no-longer-wanted food to serve up great meals. And we have wish lists on Amazon and Dollar Tree 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!
Wondering how much recyclers and shoppers matter?
