Items to Keep Out of The Landfill

Earthub has implemented a program to keep items out of the landfill for reuse. We have various items we collect based on the collection city. See your city below for more information!

How it works:

  • Collect the items listed under your city

  • Email your City's specific email address to obtain the list of drop-off locations (drop-off locations are volunteer's homes, we never post them publicly and we ask that you do not post them on any public forums!)

  • Drop-off your CLEAN items in bulk 

  • Earthub Volunteers will make sure your item gets to the end user as efficiently as possible!

Monetary donations help us fund for shipping, spreading awareness, and collection costs. Believe it or not but all of our costs so far have come straight from our Founder's pocket! We are dedicated to making a difference.
