Check What We Take


Check our list to make sure we recycle your items. Have just one item? Check your cupboards for cables, cords, gadgets, old phones or loose doodads.


Remove Soft Plastics


Remove all plastic bags and styrofoam packaging. We're not plastic recyclers. so have to find someone to take anything we receive.


Wipe Your Items


Wipe down your items to remove dust, dirt and cobwebs. It helps keep toxins off our clothes and out of our lungs. Keep in mind - we take them by hand.

Box Only in Cardboard


Box all items in cardboard only. Our facilities are too rough on plastic or other types of boxes. No plastic or other types of bags either please. 


Unlock from the Cloud


If you remove your phone or tablet from your cloud account, then reset it, it can be reused safely. Don't know how? Here's instructions.


Leave on Your Doorstep


To ensure your items aren't taken, leave them on your property, protected from rain, on your front doorstep, with a note, "for Lisa & Adrian".
