Here’s how it works:

First, check to see what items we accept.

Then, bag or box up your donations that are ready for pick-up and make sure they’re labeled with the applicable charity name (more details below). It can help to put elastic bands around shoes to keep them together and put any loose items like jewelry in a clear, sealable bag.

Schedule your donation pick-up

  • It’s quick and easy, and you’ll be given choices along the way.
  • Go to and click on the “schedule a pick-up” tab.
  • You will be prompted to put in your name, email or phone number, and zip code.
  • If pick-up service is available in your area, you will be asked for some additional information. (We apologize if we are not currently in your area.)
  • Once you have filled out this information, you can select a pick-up date. You will be asked for some additional information at this time, including the charity you would like to donate to in your area. (Don’t forget to label your donations with this charity accordingly.)

Put your donations outside for pick-up

On the day of your pick-up, leave your packaged donations where you listed as a preference online, whether that’s outside your garage or on the side of your house. And again, make sure your bags or boxes are labeled clearly with the charity name they’re going to and kept away from anything else that could accidentally be picked up.

Get a tax receipt online

You can download a tax receipt for your records and select a nonprofit organization such as American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island Donation Center, Military Order of the Purple Cross, National Federation of the Blind, or Society of St. Vincent de Paul Philadelphia.

Great things happen next

We pay the nonprofit partner you selected for the items you donated (thank you), helping them fund much-needed programs in your area.

Then, the best items are sorted and put out on the sales floor of our sister stores, 2nd Ave. Thrift Superstores™, where thrifters can thrift for the best finds and deals arriving every day.

Roughly 95 percent of what isn’t sold in our stores is reused or repurposed in some way. How cool is that?

Now that you know how a donation pick-up service works, we hope you’ll schedule a donation pick-up online with GreenDrop soon. And don’t forget to tell your friends!
