We do not acquire products from smoking households.
We don't take any toy guns or other weapons, or anything glorifying violence (with the exception of light sabers). We don’t take stuffed animals.
In general, we don't take any books that were printed over 10 years ago, tiny plastic toys, McDonald's or giveaway toys, or teething toys.
Plastic Toys – Plastic breaks. We get it. You’ll often have a set of toys, and not all pieces will last. While we can’t purchase the incomplete set, we can aim to give it a new life. If you’re scheduling a pickup from us, send on that incomplete set. We will see if we can do our best to give it a new life.
If you would simply like to get the toys in your house picked up, without payment, we will pickup all toys you'd like us to, and donate whatever toys we cannot use.
