Although we greatly appreciate everyone who wants to donate to the ReStores, we aren’t able to accept some items because of safety concerns or low turnover. When we accept items that we cannot sell, we incur high dumpster fees, which reduces the money available to support our mission.

  • Furniture/Mattresses that are torn/stained
  • Blinds and window treatments with cords
  • Hospital beds
  • Paint
  • Pianos
  • Clothing, bed linens, and curtains
