Donate Materials

We accept donations by appointment only. Please see below for all the juicy details.

    • First! Review our list of items we DO and DO NOT accept below. 
    • Next, schedule a donation pick-up appointment by sending us an email at Hello@catseyecreativereuse.com or give us a call at (208) 252-5510. Please include a description of the items you're planning to donate, and an estimate of how many boxes of materials you have. We can pick up donations in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Caldwell, ID and may even be able to make exceptions for extra special donations that fall outside of these areas. We also accept mail in donations via USPS!

That's that! Then you can say a loving goodbye to your unwanted items, knowing that they'll skip the landfill and find their way to a new home for creative reuse, and say hello to more room in your garage or craft room or wherever you've created new space! 

A couple things to note:

  1. The materials we accept must be clean and reusable. Free of dirt, mildew and any other questionable substances... 
  2. An organized donation makes all the difference in how we're able to process it and get the items into new hands. When our donors take the time to make their donation neat and organized, it not only fills our hearts with joy, but it expedites the process and gets materials to folks quicker.  
  3. Please make sure your donation is in a box/container that we can keep.
