Not Accepted



We accept Christmas trees and lights from October-December every year, if it is outside of that timeframe we ask that you hold onto them. If you are wanting to specifically donate these items send us a message via FB or email and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

stained, ripped, or company branded

We also are not accepting used underwear or socks. At this time we do not have the capacity to recycle textiles at this time. If you have a question about a certain item of clothing, feel free to reach out to us! 


Like we mentioned, we just do not have the space to accommodate these larger items. Due to our Chanhassen location closing, we are no longer accepting any furniture whatsoever.

mattresses or boxsprings

Again, we just do not have the space or manpower to accommodate for items like this.

baby utility items

This includes baby cribs, high chairs, pack and plays, strollers, and car seats. Unfortunately, we can't accept these items due to safety regulations.

large area rugs & carpet

We love that you're looking for a place to drop this item to be reused but again, we have limited space. We do not accept area rugs larger than 8x10. 

broken/battery operated toys

Sadly we cannot give your well loved toys a new home. We also would hate to get a battery operated toy in + resell it only for our valued shoppers to realize it no longer works. 


At this time we cannot accept any weapons as donations. For the safety of our employees, volunteers, and our shoppers, we cannot safely store, test, or accept these items.


This includes TVs, DVD/Blu-Ray players, computers, gaming systems, etc. We also do not accept VHS tapes, cassette tapes or CDs. 

window treatments

Sorry, we do not accept any window treatments including blinds and draperies. 

appliances & exercise equipment

Please, do not drop any appliances, stationary bikes, treadmills, etc. off as donations. Our facility cannot accommodate these items.

hardwired lights

Again, we just do not have the space or manpower to accommodate for items like this. We also do not accept light bulbs at this time. 

industrial items

This includes cans of paint, scrap metals, scrap wood, unframed mirrors, etc.


Sorry, we do not accept any type of tents at this time. 

inflatable mattresses

Sorry, we do not accept any type of inflatable mattresses at this time. 

prescribed/ used medications

Due to the personal nature of these items, we do not accept them. This includes prescribed medical equipment such as CPAP machines, crutches, nebulizers, breast pumps, etc.
