Get started now by schedule a New York City free donation pickup!

We aren’t yet serving all of New York City or the Greater New York City Area. Start your donation form now to see if we are picking up in your zip code! If not, you can partner up with a friend in a zip code where we do service so that you can donate together and reap all the benefits.

A Free and Convenient Pickup Service

There are no charges or hidden fees through our service. Even though our partnership with the UPS provides a service, we don't charge a penny. And if you are donating because of moving out of your home or apartment, you might save on the cost of a moving truck. A 2013 report by the Council for Community and Economic Research found that Manhattan and Brooklyn are the two most expensive places to live in the US! Any service that's free is a boon to your wallet.

Tax Deductible Donations

Once we receive your donations, we'll mail you a tax receipt that you can use to reduce the amount of your tax burden.

Help Support our Veterans

All donations go to the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA), the nation's first and only nationally-chartered organization for that helps support all of our nation's veterans - past, present and future!

Get Organized by Donating

Donating gets rid of unwanted clutter and encourages you to get organized in your home or apartment. With the cost of living so high in New York - Manhattan and Brooklyn are the two most expensive places to live in the US, and Queens is sixth - every square foot in your apartment matters. Don't let unused clothing pile up. Change out your closets and dressers. Even if you aren't ready to buy new clothes, you can give yourself more elbow room by donating the items you no longer wear.

Donating is Recycling by Reducing our Waste

According to the New York City Curbside Municipal Refuse and Recycling Statistics report for 2012, NYC prevented 43% of its garbage from going to waste by recycling it. 43% is good, but New Yorkers can do even better! Donating your used clothing and other used items keeps them out of the trash bin. Instead of throwing household items away, you can help them be resold to people who need them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is your donation pick up service different in New York City than in other cities?

Because of the unique layout of New York City, no charities are able to easily send donation pick up trucks to New Yorkers. That's why we partnered with the UPS to get the job done! UPS delivery personnel can pick up your donations at any UPS approved-dropoff locations.

Does PickUpPlease serve all the areas of New York?

Not yet, though we are working with UPS to bring pickup trucks and delivery locations to all of New York City. Check out whether we are serving your zip code by filling out our online donation pickup scheduling form!
