Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah receives approximately 17% of its operating funds from our household recycling program. We take your gently used and reusable goods and sell them to Savers stores along the Wasatch Front. Savers is owned and operated by Savers, Inc.

 


DONATING YOUR HOUSEHOLD ITEMS IS AS EASY!

  1. Click Here to find a convenient donation bin location in your neighborhood.
  2. Drop off your donation 7 days a week at our Attended Donation Station (click link for hours and location)
  3. Call to schedule a pick up: 801-747-1050 in Salt Lake County, 1-800-238-8061 outside Salt Lake County
  4. Look for the yellow card in your mailbox
  5. Email us

On your scheduled pick-up day, mark them with a BBBS or the card and place your usable household items on your curbside, clearly visible from the street by 8:00 AM.  Please call us at (801) 747-1050 if you are placing them somewhere other than curbside so we do not miss them or if you have an especially large donation.  We do not have a two-person pick up truck and therefore are not able to pick up large furniture that would require two people to load and unload these items. Your items will be picked up by a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah driver and a donation receipt will be left for your tax records.

 Or

Place your cloth items in one of our blue donation bins located along the Wasatch Front.   Click here to find the donation bin nearest you.  Call us for a receipt.

Our Donation Center Vice President, Bill Forman handles all questions and concerns in regards to Donation Bins.  If you would like to add a drop off box to your business or hold a clothing drive, please contact Bill at 801-747-1050 or  via e-mail at bill.forman@bbbsu.org.
