Did you know that we are an American Kidney Services drop-off location? Together we achieve both our missions--helping those suffering from kidney-related illness pay expensive medical bills and encouraging landfill diversion through reuse! An AKS truck is onsite at our Sandy Springs Recycling Center to collect your gently used clothing and small household goods. The items are then sold by AKS turning your T-shirt a into a medical bill payment.
Ready to donate? Make sure your item is clean and in very good condition, then place all soft items (clothing, linens, drapes) in a bag and tie it off. Place all small household items as well as shoes and belts in a box, then seal it. Place it on the back of our AKS truck (not the ground please) and we'll stack it just right for transport.
AKS does NOT accept:
NO Office furniture
NO Large or upholstered furniture
NO Box springs/mattresses
NO Household fixtures such as kitchen/bathroom cabinets, lighting
NO Unassembled furniture including headboards/footboards
NO Car Seats or cribs
NO Paint, plumbing fixtures

Donated items need to be packed in a very specific way. Watch and learn.
