Waste To Charity has been donating truckloads of tooling, tool cabinets , and other industrial supplies to our organization. If they did not save them they would be filling up local landfills since "BIG BUSINESS" just wants to throw away waste instead of finding a new life and use for it. I also spoke to jack and he donated another truckload of paper products to my sons youth football league. Toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, mops, mop buckets, brooms, and garbage cans. Thank You Waste To Charity and to your staff !
Waste to Charity has been a a huge help to Charlotte County the past 8 months. Donating truckloads of paper towels, toilet paper , and many household items that were distibuted to many of the needy families here in our county. ANYTIME I have called them to see if they have anything they ALWAYS have items ready for me to pickup and get distributed !
From Waste To Charity's Form 990 filings:
2009 - Total Revenues: $143,445; Compensation to Jon Fitzgerald: $118,620
2010 - Total Revenues: $108,831; Compensation to Jon Fitzgerald: $78,596
2011 - Total Revenues: $409,083; Compensation to Jon Fitzgerald: $345,914
Not in any filings but good to know:
Sells majority of donated stock on eBay under the name: industryrecycles
Also sells through a private website with the same name as above
Majority of donations come from one company and most of the inventory would not end up in a landfill. Check the eBay account above to see their inventory. Most items are new overstock/discontinued with some customer returns that if they weren't donated would be sold to liquidators and other surplus inventory distributors. The only reason the items are donated is because the company, under current regulations, receives more from the tax right-off than they do from liquidating it.
Some things do get donated to other charities (and hopefully from there to people who actually need them) but only if they are deemed unsellable or otherwise not worth dealing with.
Take note of how many of the reviews here have very similar language and how many were posted soon after a bad review was given. Some could be real, but I would bet that most are shills.
Look at the 990's (you can see them on guidestar.org - login required), check out the eBay account, and do a search for Waste To Charity, then decide if this is the kind of charity you want to be associated with.
Waste to Charity is a huge benefit across the board. Their dedication to recyling for the good is just one example of their commitment to serving the communities/business where it's needed and paying it forward. Items that would typically be tossed into the garbage or wind up on some storage rack indefinately are sought out and being utilized. They are such a great organization, it goes beyond words to explain. Waste not, want not. Thnak you for all your hard work.
Waste to Charity brings so much to the community/city/state, proving once again, we can make a difference, you just need to follow through. Thank you again for doing such a great job.
Waste to Charity goes above and beyond helping others in need. Glad to see supplies not being wasted,keeping materials out of our landfills and in the hands of the people that need them.Glad to see somebody still cares
I see first hand what Waste to Charity does to donate items to various charities . Most of the items donated would have filled landfills if it were not for Waste to Charity rescuing them and giving them a new life!
I have listened for years to the many stories of relief and value that Waste to Charity has provided for people here in the USA and abroad. So many of our products in this country are wasted or condemned before they are ruined. What child who is dying of pneumonia or parent who's child is sick wouldn't want any help whatsoever. We need companies like "Waste to Charity" to insure that our country doesn't 'waste' anything, when so many people are in need. I applaud Waste To Charity's efforts during the devastating storms in the Gulf and their efforts are nothing less than relentless!
Review from Guidestar
This nonprofit keeps untold amounts of materials out of landfills and puts it into the hands of people who can actually do something useful with it! God Bless them, I wish there were more companies committed as fully as Wast to Charity!
Review from Guidestar
What a great organization! I love their philosophy - they really embrace what a "not for profit" is all about.
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!
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 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.
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.
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 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.
