Where can I DONATE?

The list below is our best effort to find local opportunities to give your discards a second life. Please note:

  1. We implore you to contact all of the organizations listed below (contact information on their websites, hotlinked below) before taking your donations to confirm they will accept your items.

We have a MUCH more detailed list available in spreadsheet form that includes city locations, street addresses, emails, phone numbers (all stuff you can find on their individual websites, of course) but if you would like a one-stop shop for this information, please email us at TowardZeroWasteNewburyport@outlook.com with Donation List in the subject line to receive the detailed list.
