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.
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.
