What sort of things do you take?
We’ll take your household goods (big and small) that you think a student would be happy to have! Hangers, laundry racks, kitchen equipment, and desk lamps are especially popular items.
When can I drop off my stuff?
We have volunteers at ReStore on Monday and Wednesday evenings- check our Facebook page for updated hours. If this doesn’t work for you, send us a message to arrange an after-hours dropoff.
I’m moving out today/tomorrow/right now, can you come pick up my stuff?
All our pickups are done by volunteers, during exam season- we have a limited amount of drivers and energy. We schedule pick-up evenings once a week, allowing us to schedule the most efficient pick-up routes.
What information should I include when requesting a pickup?
Your name, address, contact information, and a detailed list of donations (including pictures) will make our lives much easier!
Can I donate my bed/mattress?
Unfortunately not. Due to bedbug concerns we are unable to accept beds, mattresses, bed linens, or bed pillows.
I booked a pickup for [this item,] can you take [these other items] too?
No, sorry. Again, due to scheduling and space constraints, our volunteers can only collect what you have booked.
My pickup is scheduled for this afternoon, what should I do to help out your volunteers?
I’m so glad you asked! Be home during the scheduled time with your furniture on the ground floor, ready to go. If you can’t get it to the ground floor by yourself, make sure it is disassembled enough to fit through all doorways without a problem.
