Because of the cost of disposal and/or government restrictions and/or no resale value, we do not accept the following:

auto parts; baby bath seats; baby cribs; baby play pens; baby walkers; batteries; bean bag chairs; box springs; building materials; bunk beds; car seats; cassette tapes; computer monitors/towers/keyboards/printers; encyclopedia sets; exercise equipment; fax machines; fire extinguishers; fish tanks; food & beverage; furnaces; hair dryers; halogen lamps; hazardous materials; high chairs; inflatable items; items in need of repair; make-up (used and/or open); mattresses; nothing alive (plants, animals); oil; paint; pianos/organs; printers; Reader's Digest condensed books; TV's; toys made of soft plastic or painted wood; strollers; typewriters; waterbeds; window blinds (slatted or roll-ups).


We accept items that we sell in our store. They must be clean and not need repair. What does this mean? It means that not every item, even if in excellent condition, is sellable in our store. You might have some good items in your home (like an aquarium), but we don't sell them. So therefore we don't accept them. The issue is how much room we have in the store and what we know sells to benefit IV PADS (Ottawa PADS, Peru PADS, Lily Pads). THANK YOU for understanding!
