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.

Geographic areas served: Worldwide

Programs: Offering management and processing services to other qualified charities to help convert their donated inventory into funds they can then use for their charitable purposes.

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!

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!

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 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.

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.

You would be more than amazed at how much industrial stuff goes to the landfill. This organization helps companies find uses for large and small quantities of products, ingredients, used machinery and all sorts of items they would normally put in a dumpster. In addition many of the items are distributed to other charitable organizations that can use them. I would like more companies to learn about the enviromental, social and financial benefits to donating.
