Mission: Waste to charity is an international,501C3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to find uses for the Millions of pounds of “obsolete” and “waste” products produced by manufacturers, importers wholesalers and retail companies to stop these items going to our landfills. We find that MOST of these products can be reused in some way by people in need. How many times have you seen a company throw something away that you wished could have just been given to someone who could use it? That exact idea was used to found Waste to Charity. We know companies don’t want to dispose of anything they don’t have to, but it’s a fact of doing business. Through our work, we help corporations find new, less expensive and charitable ways to rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded items. Through charitable giving, these items assist the company’s bottom line in the form of for tax benefits, as well as the knowledge and praise that comes with helping those in need. Manufacturers may have product that is close to expiration, does not meet specs for sale, or may be storing an ingredient or item is no longer being used due to changes in ingredients, color or product. We make donating these items easy, visit www.wastetocharity.org, fill out the donation form, and we’ll do the rest.

I think this organization does a great service to the community and country in general.Recycling old machinery and other products that could end up in landfills, turning them around for other uses is a great service. T HE MAIN REASON THAT I DEAL WITH THIS CHARITY IS, THE PEOPLE ,THE SERVICE TO COMMUNITY AND THE FACT THAT I AM DOING A GOOD THING BY DEALING WITH THEM.

I have been working with Waste to Charity for several years now. I am impressed at how they have been able to create a company out of items others have no more use for. This not only helps save the environment and landfills from filling up with useful items, but helps all who receive the items with lower overhead for things they need anyway. I look forward to their growth in the future and will keep them in mind anytime I have things to donate.

Thank goodness that Organizations like this find like minded companies, and put resources to good use. Think about it- when we’re just throwing all of our resources away it is pathetic. Kudos for Waste to Charity!

1,300 Bags of Cat food was a lot to unload off the truck! We had to find people to donate garage space, and it was a lot of work, but we got it done!

Waste to Charity made certain that the food wasn't contaminated, or part of ANY recall.

Thanks to Jack, Natalie, and Joe!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Thanks to Waste to Charity , we were able to feed SO many cats, and this food didn't wind up in a dumpster.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help Them get better known- or hire an advertising firm!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

How about Saturday Deliveries?/ We realize that this was a first time, and we weren’t ready for it, but if the trucking company could have given an extra’s day notice! Friday Delivery? Come on! it would have been helpful. It’s tough enough to get Volunteers, never mind on a Friday Afternoon..

This organization has been a Pioneer in the field of reverse logistics. Their people were very forthcoming, and we were surprised when then actually referred us to another charity, as an option.

When we worked overseas, we were able to place the same methods of both Horizontal Occupancy Ratio-Ratio of exposed floor space in the occupiable space to floor space occupied by warehousing units.

Horizontal Separations-Space consumed by pallets in a column or unit clearances in racks, bins and shelves. Also space consumed by beams, rails shelves or other horizontal supports.

Having Fun with Reverse Logistics

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the word out! Waste to Charity helps thousands of companies every year!

Waste to charity has filed for bankruptcy. Why would you donate to a charity that has been in bankruptcy for almost 2 years or more. If they are doing everything they say they should be ok like all of the other good charities? I was also told they are in a really big lawsuit with tempurpedic.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This charity needs to come out of bankruptcy to show everyone that they do the right thing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do what it takes to come out of bankruptcy and help people

My company donated our old (but working) Plastic Molding Machine to WTC. Our machine was placed directly onto a cargo container, and we could see that the booking for it was Haiti. This was before the big Earthquake, so donating to Haiti really wasn't thought of as much then.
We will gladly donate to WTC in the future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

If not for WTC, our Machine probably would have ended up in a land fill.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing I can think of.

My Wife and I have volunteered for several non profits in the past. Waste to Charity is by far one of the best we have volunteered for. Sending out over 15000 identify it Educational flash cards for children is no simple task and this organization made it happen without a hitch. Would certainly help them again if the opportunity arose.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Very well organized, Friendly, Prompt.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of anything.

I see first hand the donations that Waste To Charity donates on a daily basis. It amazes me the amount of waste that would be going into our landfills, instead of going to people and countries that need the items in order to survive. America needs more non profits like WTC.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I volunteered hours helping go through loads of supplies that needed to be re packed and shipped out to various charities

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None at this time

1 Truckload of assorted snack foods, (chips, pretzels, etc.) City of Industry California, going to the local homeless shelter. I volunteered to help unload the truck and it was clear that these snacks were straight from the bakery.

This organization is without a doubt dedicated to helping people and our planet. Keep up the great work. I would definitely volunteer for them again.
