Clothing and Household Recycling Donation Pick-Up
Your reusable clothing, shoes, and household items make a difference to The Arc of Texas!
We NEED your gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, household items and small appliances. Clothing and Household Recycling is a great opportunity for everyone to help support the programs and services of The Arc of Texas without spending money, and by simply donating gently used items that are no longer wanted or needed!
We partner with ReUseIt, LLC to provide professional and courteous donation pick-up service on behalf of The Arc of Texas. Your donations are fully tax deductible!

Donations are picked up between 8:00am and 5:00pm most days.

The Arc of Texas went into partnership with Thrift Town in 1975 to create our Household Recycling Program. The Arc of Texas raises money by selling these recycled items to Thrift Town, a for-profit thrift store. Our partnership with Thrift Town has generated millions of dollars for the programs and services of The Arc of Texas and our local affiliated chapters. Currently, this program is responsible for bringing in approximately a third of our operating budget. Donations may also be dropped off at Thrift Town.
