A list of organizations where residents can post items they no longer want and search for items they need.

Material exchanges might be the perfect outlet for your waste or the perfect place to find the stuff you're looking for!

General Reuse

Please call or e-mail the organization first to be sure they have storage space. Check out their websites for "wish lists" of what they need and want. 

Companies located within the City of St. Louis are noted with an image of the Arch.  Companies located within Missouri are noted with an image of the State of Missouri.

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 any time.
