keeping our community safe

ReStore is now accepting pick-up and drop-off donations with additional acceptability criteria to protect the health of our customers, donors, and staff. In addition to our usual donation criteria above, ReStore must temporarily decline the following items:

NO USED CLOTH OR FABRIC couches, loveseats, futons, sleeper sofas, chairs, ottomans, household items, home décor, curtains, cushions, bed frames, office chairs, patio umbrellas, carpet padding or carpet squares

reduce, reuse, recycle recycling at ReStore

Mattresses and paint cannot be accepted as donations. However, they can be recycled at ReStore Oakland during regular donation drop-off hours. Additionally, hazardous waste such as batteries, fluorescent lights, and aerosols can be disposed of at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, located right next to ReStore San Jose, in the San Jose Environmental Innovation Center
