Donate items to the ReStore
We serve Albany, Rensselaer, and Saratoga Counties. For donors outside of this area, please contact the ReStore closest to you (i.e., Schenectady, Southern Adirondacks, Hudson, Pittsfield). If for some reason your local ReStore is unable to accommodate your donation, or if you live in an area that is not clearly serviced by another ReStore (i.e., Schoharie or Green Counties, etc.), please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to work something out.
Option 1: Drop off your items at the store
Beginning October 14, 2019, all donation drop-offs must be pre-arranged with our team by using the online form below. This helps us be available to help you and plan ahead while helping other customers on the floor. If you need to cancel or reschedule a drop off, please let our donations coordinator know by email or phone. During your drop-off, you can expect our team to meet you at the loading dock ready to assist.
Option 2: Request a free pick-up
Free pickups by the ReStore trucks will be scheduled for large, multi-item donations. We are unable to schedule pick-ups for small or single items. You can, however, be added to our cancellation list, so if we are in your area with a cancellation or room on the truck you can be contacted to see if a pick-up can occur. Your contact information will not be shared outside our organization. Click the button below to submit a pick-up request.
After scheduling a pick-up, please be sure that your items are easily accessible when the drivers arrive. Donations should be neatly organized in a central location, and all hallways and walkways should be free of obstructions. Every effort should be made to eliminate the use of stairs, whenever possible. During inclement weather, all exterior walkways must be shoveled and free of ice.
*All items to be picked up are at the discretion of the ReStore employees. Any item not meeting the guidelines listed above will not be picked up.*
Is your business looking to donate large quantities of inventory?
The ReStore will help save you disposal costs! You can donate unwanted inventory of new or gently-used items at no cost to your business—and your donation will help build homes right here in the Capital District! Give us a call to coordinate the delivery or pick-up of inventory you no longer need.
Due to the large volume of requests for donation pick-ups we receive, the quickest way to hear back from us is by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or submitting the donation form above. To cancel a donation pick-up or drop-off, please call (518) 275-6638 x110.
