    Damaged clothes and linens aren’t garbage anymore. Up to 95 percent of the clothes, shoes, and linens thrown in the garbage could have been reused or recycled*. Local organizations want all your clothes, shoes, and linens for reuse or recycling – even damaged goods – in any condition except wet.

  • Car Donations: Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington through the non-profit Wheels for Wisheslinks to external site.

Product Exchanges:

Swaps - Dust off those books, DVDs, CDs and video games you're not going to read, watch, listen to or play again. Instead of spending money to buy new, visit swap websites where you can exchange your items for others you've been wanting. You'll only pay for postage.

Reuse - Reuse Alliance is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit that is working to increase awareness of reuse by educating the public about its social, environmental and economic benefits.

If you would like more information on donating or recycling, please contact the City of Auburn Customer Care Specialist at 253-931-3047 or via email.
