DONATE MATERIALS: The WasteShed Call for Donations

We also always need rubber bands and new or very clean tiny ziploc bags.


The WasteShed is currently working on relocating, and we have reduced the variety of materials we can accept until we have completed our move. The above image lists all the materials we are accepting at this time (image text is transcribed below). Please note that all donations are subject to staff approval on site. If you have any questions, please email  

We accept donations at our 914 N California store from 11 am - 6 pm, Tuesday - Saturday. All donations must be in clean and in usable condition. We appreciate well-organized donations. PLEASE do not send us donations via mail or dump donations outside our store! Click here for a list of other Creative Reuse Centers around the country that may be closer to you or able to accept donations via the mail.

The WasteShed is only about 75% self-supporting through sales. We depend on small grants and donations from the people who love us to operate. Even a small donation can
make a big difference for our ability to effectively serve the community, and we are hoping to expand our education programming. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
