COVID-19 has resulted in most donation organizations closing or restricting items they accept. To reflect these changes, the only items currently accepted for reuse in the Clean Up Day program are:
- Clothing and Textiles
- CDs/DVDs (only commercial recordings in original cases and in resale condition; no personal recordings)
* NEW AUGUST 2021:
Clean, gently used furniture will once again be accepted for donation. Visit GreenWaste of Palo Alto for specific furniture guidelines.
Please do NOT place antiques out for donation through the Clean Up Day program. They can be more appropriately re-homed through other programs.
Broken, stained, or otherwise low-quality furniture, kitchenware and generic household items may still be set out, but will be recycled instead of reused. Drivers are knowledgeable of the donation standards and will determine what can be reused versus recycled.
