Charities that Pick Up Donations

A list of organizations that accept and pick up donations of useful items.

Donate items and keep them out of 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.
