Are you cleaning out your closets and garages?  Would you like to donate your old items, but don't have the time or transportation to do so?  The following is a list of charities that offer home pickup services for your donations!  Donating items you no longer use not only benefits people in need - it helps the environment, and keeps our City's refuse costs low by reducing the items that end up in the landfill.

The City of St. Louis offers this list of charities, which is not inclusive, to help citizens find a new home for their old items.  The City does not endorse any of these businesses or services.  Space does not allow us to include all organizations that may be applicable to this list.  The variety and availability of these services may change at anytime.
