Yale Recycling and the Yale Office of Sustainability are delighted to invite you to this year’s Spring Salvage Donation Days Event. We take great pride in the opportunity to re-distribute the useful household items that Yale students have donated during their departure from campus this spring. Last year nearly $200,000 worth of goods were made available to the New Haven community through this effort.
All donated items are free to non-profit organizations, New Haven area schools and charitable organizations and the Yale community. Our warehouse will be “re-stocked” between donation days so our inventory will be just as good if not better on the second Donation Day.
Please take note:
Items will only be available for pick up during the designated Donation Day dates and times. No one will be allowed to visit the warehouse before this time, place “dibs” on items of interest, or gain access before 10:30 am on the donation days.
Donation Days are open to non-profits, New Haven area schools, charitable organizations and the Yale community only. Please bring business cards, letterhead or other documentation such as the IRS 501(c)(3) letter for your non-profit or a current Yale issued ID. If you will be sending patients or clients to pick up items for their own personal use please provide them with a letter to this effect, printed on your organization’s letterhead.
This invitation is for your organization. Please do not pass this invitation on to friends or other members of the general public. Please do not pass this invitation on to listserves or post it on any web sites, including those for non-profits. Last year’s inclusion of the general public created difficulties and reduced the availability of important items for non-profits.
If you know of other organizations that should be invited please let us know and we will include them in this and future announcements
Parking is limited. Please car pool.
If you plan to pick up large donations (ie. furniture) please bring a vehicle large enough to transport your items from our warehouse. We cannot hold items for you after the donation day.
Here is a list of items that have been available in the past. We cannot guarantee what we will have again this year given that we rely strictly on student donations. However, many of the following items are consistently available from year to year:
White Boards/Cork Boards
Last year Yale donated more than 45 tons of items to the New Haven community. We hope that you will join us again this year.
