The Salvation Army, 22 Quincy Street, Brooklyn. This might be top of mind when people think about donating goods. The “Salvo,” as it’s sometimes called, will accept everything from clothes to furniture to electronics and more. You can even schedule a pick up of your items. And, there are multiple locations throughout the city.
The Big Reuse, 69 9th Street, Brooklyn. The Big Reuse’s mission is to keep building materials and the like out of landfills. This organization accepts bath and kitchen products and materials, appliances, wood, and structural items. You might not be getting rid of a ton of things they can take, but it’s worth a try! They also accept furniture!
Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse, 469 President Street, Brooklyn. Everyone has outdated electronics lying around just taking up space. Instead of sending all this stuff to the landfill, give it to someone who can use it! The Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse is the largest non-municipal provider of e-waste recycling services in NYC. They accept a wide range of electronics including TVs, printers, cell phones, computers, and more. However, they will charge a recycling fee if you drop off your CD collection. Sorry.
Don’t just dump your unwanted stuff on the curb. Reuse, recycle, and refresh this spring in Gowanus!
