For larger donations, they suggest bringing items to their SE location during their public drop-off hours.

Untonne offers subscriptions for emission reduction and reforestation solutions. Nearly 3 billion people worldwide lack the resources to afford a safe and efficient cookstove that gets smoke out of the home and keeps kids from getting burned. Untonne members help pay down the cost of these stoves, and, in the process reduce emissions equal to some or all of their members’ carbon footprint.
OKAPI Reusables is a reusable cup network in Portland. As an OKAPI member, you can get your coffee (or smoothies, tea, boba) to-go in a reusable cup and return it to any cafe in the network within two weeks. There’s a one-time fee of $10, then you can borrow and return as much as you like, using a simple app. We’re in 16 locations in Portland and looking to expand to Beaverton.
Community collection for Blanchet House:
Men’s t-shirts (L, XL, 2X, 3X. No small or medium) for Blanchet House. Blanchet House is a local nonprofit that makes a difference, one relationship at a time, through food, clothing, and supportive housing programs. Dropbox for t-shirts will be near the James Recycling payment table.
ITEMS WITH RECYCLING NUMBERS MUST BE SORTED BY THAT NUMBER. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT UNSORTED RECYCLING OR ITEMS THAT ARE NOT CLEAN.
If you are elderly, have a disability, or need help carrying recycling from your vehicle, please come to the check-in table and we will find someone to provide assistance
