How does my donation to the ReStore help the environment?
- By donating your items or shopping at the ReStore, we can give items new life and keep usable materials out of local landfills. In 2021, our ReStores diverted 7,273 tons of reusable materials from landfills last year.
Do the ReStores repair donated items and materials?
- No, we do not have the resources to repair donated items. We request that donations are ready to sell as-is.

Is there a fee to have my donations picked up?
- There is a $40 flat fee for standard residential pickups. This helps us offset the costs with providing this service. Your donation is tax-deductible, and we will provide you a receipt.
Can the ReStore pick up donations that are inside my house?
- For our standard residential pickups, we are unable to enter your home to get items. Please leave all items curbside, at the end of the driveway, in a parking space or garage.
Why can’t you accept my donation?
- On occasion, we cannot accept donations due to condition or our guidelines. We do our best to notify donors of items we cannot accept before the pickup appointment is scheduled. If you have questions about if your item(s) will be accepted, please call us at 971-229-8888 or email us at email@example.com before dropping off your items.
