REUSE: A KIND WAY TO RECYCLE. Donating items rather than throwing them away can support local charity efforts to sustain job training and self-sufficiency programs for people with disabilities and families in need.

Treasures 4 Teachers


Treasures for Teachers does not pick up, but residents or businesses may have supplies that can be valuable to teachers, but may not be accepted by other charities.

Treasures for Treachers stock traditional school supplies such as notebook paper, pencils and crayons. However, some of their more popular items are very non-traditional such as carpet squares, wallpaper and fabric samples, and ice cream containers and other unusual items that can be used creatively in learning environments for our community's students.

Trash to Treasure Program

Trash to Treasure is operated by the City of Chandler for residents dropping off waste at the Recycling Solid Waste Collection Center.  Gently used items are sorted by residents and dropped
off at donation bins on site. The City of Chandler does not collect reusable items through bulk
for this program as many of the charities already provide home collection. (See list above.)


Trash to Treasure accepts the following:
  • Large Household Items - Large appliances*, furniture,
  • Small Household Items - Toys*, home decor, small appliances such as vacuums and toasters*, etc.
  • Personal Items - Clothing shoes, accessories, bed and bath linens, etc.
  • Construction (Remodeling) Material - Cabinets*, sinks*, fixtures*, tools*, etc.

*Items Must Be in Working Condition

Items are donated to local non-profit organizations.
