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.

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!

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.

Waste to Charity, Inc. does a fabulous job furthering the green initiative here in the US by recycling usable products back into the mainstream. Efforts such as theirs keep non-biodegradable items out of our landfills.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the volume of product recycled and donated.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
