Got renovation leftovers? Let them lift the community!

Have you started spring cleaning or planning a summer renovation?
Do you have a lot of usable items that you just don’t need any more?

Help them find new life at the ‘Lift!

Does your house look like this, too? We want to hear from you! (Photo credit: Holly Harper, 2018 Reuse Contest Winner)

By donating to Community Forklift, you can qualify for a tax deduction, reduce disposal costs, keep items out of the landfill, create jobs, and lift up local communities. We accept donations of most new and salvaged building & landscaping materials, appliances, and tools, as well as antique and vintage housewares. We also accept some furniture and commercial materials on a case-by-case basis.

For certain large donations,
you can even schedule a free pickup at home.
To request a pick up, please review our Donations Guidelines
and fill out our online form.

Beat the rush!
Schedule your pickup now.

It’s currently a slow time for our pickup team,
so beat the late-spring rush and get your requests in now!
And while you’re at it: if your friends and neighbors are cleaning or renovating, remind them that we can help them too.

Although we can’t schedule pick ups by email, if you have a specific question, the quickest way to reach our Donations Team is by emailing (if necessary, you can also call our Donations Coordinator at 301-985-5180 ext. 202).

The Donations team is in the office Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. We are not able to respond to phone calls, texts, emails, and online forms outside of these hours.

Community Forklift is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
