Other places to donate

Unfortunately, we can't take everything!

We hope this list helps in finding the right home for the materials we are unable to accept.

Pro tips
  1. Call before you go!
  2. The PA DEP’s Recycling Hotline gives guidance on disposing hard to recycle items: 1-800-346-4242.
  3. The City of Pittsburgh has drop-off services for various materials (e-waste, chemicals, etc.).
  4. Recycle This Pittsburgh is another great resource. Check them out here.
