We can use materials you may throw away!
Many items have creative value and can be kept out of the trash.
Scrap It Up accepts materials from individuals and from businesses, manufacturers, design firms, furniture stores and other commercial sources. See below for a list of items we accept. This list is not all inclusive, so if you have materials to dispose of that are not on the list, please email us or give us a call. Also, in consideration of our small space, please limit donations of materials to 2 boxes or bags per visit to allow us time to sort and organize.
We welcome both material and monetary contributions. If you believe in our mission, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Scrap It Up.
