Email if

  • have any questions,
  • need to make arrangements for drop off outside of scheduled dates,
  • or have any large items you are thinking of donating.

There are some things we can’t take, like those monster rear projection TVs that can double as a fort. We are taking all the normal garage sale fodder (clothing, housewares, toys, tools, games, sports stuff, etc.), but can’t accept haz mat items, e.g. air conditioners.


We are also running an eCycling drive in partnership with Free Geek Twin Cities. If you have computers or electronics you are looking to get rid of you can drop them off at the same time. *CRT monitors – to help cover disposal costs please donate $10. For more information on Free Geek Twin Cities please check their website.

Donation drop off dates at the center. (If these don’t work for you, email to arrange another time.)
