The Arc of Alameda County is in the clothing and household goods recycling business!
Don’t donate your old clothes to anyone but The Arc!
We have placed recycling donation bins at strategic locations around the county. We then sell the items to thrift stores and pour the income back into our programs.
Two important points about our recycling program:
- We are LOCAL – all proceeds go to support programs for the people we serve at The Arc right here in Alameda County;
- We are hiring our own clients to collect the recycled clothing and sort the donations!
It’s a win/win for all!
Our donation bins or barrels are located at our four campus locations:
- San Leandro Campus: 14700 Doolittle Drive, San Leandro, CA
- Hayward Campus: 1101 Walpert Street, Hayward, CA
- Union City Campus: 34135 7th Street, Union City, CA
- Livermore Campus: 1923 Rutan Drive, Livermore, CA
Other locations include:
- Cesar Chavez Middle School: 2801 Hop Ranch Road (off Alvarado-Niles Road), Union City
- First United Church of Oakland: 685 14th Street (just off Castro), Oakland
- Blaisdell’s Business Products: 474 Roland Way, Oakland (Bin is inside the Warehouse)
- Workbench Hardware: 652 Main Street, Pleasanton
WHAT WE NEED
WHAT WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT
We are looking for other locations for placement of our donation bins.
Parking lots and gas stations are great!
