Because we’re mission driven to rescue beautiful, used stuff from a downward spiral toward the landfill, the intention behind every Reuse Drive is to provide a simple way for you to clear specific, manageable clutter from your home, and in so doing, to connect hard to donate items with organizations who need and use them to improve lives and living experiences.
In most cases, we focus on gathering and redistributing items that might wind up in the waste stream if they were dropped off at a more traditional donation center.

We’re partnering with Tech Dump for July’s Reuse Drive! We’ll be accepting used cell phones and cell phone chargers on Sunday, July 23, from 1-4PM, in an effort to help them reach their goal of collecting a TON (literally) of cell phones by Labor Day! Not only will reusing these phones and chargers help protect the environment and de-clutter your drawers, but it will also help fund 1,000 hours of job training for adults facing barriers to employment! Drop them in the bin for convenient and secure recycling. Data destruction guaranteed.
Because of the broad range of donation quality and the intention that these efforts produce genuine benefit for the recipient organizations, we actively encourage participants to respectfully decline specific items that may not be a fit. Should this happen with something you’ve brought, your pals at Junket will do our best to help you identify the next best solution.
The purpose of Junket’s monthly Reuse Drives is to help our community members incrementally declutter — while helping their unneeded stuff get into the hands of others who would find it legitimately helpful.
