Recycling Alternatives

In the event we are unable to accept all of your items,

here are some other options for donating the items you'd like to thoughtfully rehome:

The Green Project

YEP

STEM Library Lab

Out of the Closet

Habitat for Humanity

Here is another way to support us! We created a wishlist of some

one-time things we need and also supplies we use regularly. We're in a very tight budget crunch and any item that we don't have to buy ourselves is an immense help! (It's an Amazon list but that doesn't mean you need to purchase the items there.)
