Give things a new life! Donate to the Re-use Centre
Everyone has things at home or in the office that they no longer need and that just take up room. Bring them to the Re-use Centre if they’re in good condition so they don’t end up in landfill and can serve a new owner. Our shops and projects help your things find happy new owners. By doing this, we also keep the environment cleaner and help those in need.
If you have things that are still usable, clean and in good condition, but you just don’t need them anymore, you can donate them to our shops. We accept anything that is in good condition, such as clothes, furniture, crockery, toys, books, shoes, accessories, hobby items, music/films, plants, household appliances and much more.
Donating is easy and you can do it in all of our shops during their opening hours. You’ll find a donation basket by the shop’s front door – you can leave your things there.
Don’t forget that we only accept things that are clean and in no need of repair. You cannot help us with things that are broken or unusable, so please put them in the bin or take them to a waste station.
We’ll send a van to collect large items!
If you would like to donate large items such as furniture or household appliances, the Re-use Centre will send its van to collect them! This is free of charge within the city borders (Tallinn, Tartu or Pärnu) if we think the item can be sold. Take a photo of the item you want to donate and e-mail it to us with your contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call us if you want to know more: 55 533 001
Please note: The landfill charge, which is based on the size of the item, is added to the cost of transporting items unfit for re-use to landfill (€15).

What will be done with the money raised from selling my things?
As a fully self-sufficient non-profit organisation, the Re-use Centre uses the money it earns from the activities of its shops to pay the rent on its shop premises, the wages of its employees and other operating expenses. We invest the money that is left over in achieving our goal, which is to make re-use easily accessible to everyone in Estonia.
For this purpose we open centres all over Estonia to ensure that re-use really is accessible to people not far from their homes. In 2013 we opened three new centres in Tallinn, Pärnu and Tartu with the money we earned from selling your items. Thank you!
