This compAny makes us successful. Without their support we coukd not do the work that is so badly needed in our community
Great charity! I love that my company didn't have to throw out all its old inventory! Kudos for keeping it out of a landfill.
What they are doing for the community and the world is astounding. Quality people and the service is incredible. The concept is fantastic and really believe they’re doing excellent work as one of the leading environmental non-profits.
Worked with them over a summer and they did some great work. Got to see first hand how they helped those in need and the full spirit of the company.
Can't tell you what a relief it is to get GREAT customer service! Polite, responsible, and dare I say witty people work.here...and even more importantly, they are environmentally responsible!!
Without getting into a lot of detail because we happen to be in a very sensitive industry where a lot of care, honesty and attention to detail are required, I want to thank Jack and his team for surpassing all our expectations. Thank you !!!
Integrity, Honesty, Passion, ingenuity, and compassion! Waste to Charity allows companies to offload unwanted inventory, gain valuable tax relief and pass needed supplies on to those less fortunate. it's truly a win-win situation for all involved!
i like helping the environment, i like helping people, being able to both at one time is an added plus-these guys make it all very easy. will work witht hem again in the future i am sure!
Excellent people, wonderful cause. Very friendly, helpful and caring. Only dealt with them 3 different times, but A+ service and friendliness each time.
Waste to Charity has helped us change the lives of so many animals! They always help us find non-traditional ways of problem solving at our rescue! Fast, efficient, organized! Super helpful and friendly staff! We couldn’t do what we do without them!
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.
