What are your options?

Free Donation Pickup

Some organizations offer free pickup for select items and in select areas. If you want to save money, be sure to reach out to the charity organizations listed below to see their availability!

Self-Haul

If you have a truck or trailer, a partner to help with the lifting, and a couple hours to kill, you can load your items up and drop them off at one of the locations listed below. As for items that are not accepted at donation centers, you may need to locate a landfill or recycling center.

Hire a Pro

If you want to save yourself the headache (and half of your day), you can hire a pro like Mile Zero. Pickup usually takes less than 5 min to schedule, and less than 20 minutes to pickup. We will ensure items are recycled, donated, or disposed of responsibly!
