Q Why this service ?
When a donor gives something to someone who asks for it, rather than dumping it on anyone willing to take it, odds are the gift will be appreciated and returned to productive service. Our aim is to minimize good, useable technology from ending up as useless trash or salvage. Through our growing network of nonprofit participants, we provide a convenient, secure, and confidential means of giving, allowing prospective donors to offer items to nonprofit causes sensibly and with discretion.
For some, it is important to know where their gift ends up, and that it is returned to service with a nonprofit cause with which they identify. Others may seek a tax allowance, or simply want to perform an act of giving. For these and other reasons, this unique and innovative service performs a small but vital role for growing nonprofits, as well as for the earth and our environment.
Test-drive this unique service today. We've made it easy for you requiring NO login or password, and one simple form. Offer to donate any useable items a growing nonprofit organization may need. Your offer to donate remains just that - an offer to donate - while you remain anonymous until you reply back to any requesting organization of your choice.
Q Is this service free?
For all new users, it's free to use the Recycles.org network, yet for those who have been here a while we must ask your help with operating expenses. One popular giving model is ten percent of the value of anything you receive, while another is a subscription payment of five dollars each month. Our nonprofit users who contribute periodically and in fair measure never run short of credits. Testdrive our system and see how it works for you! On-line payment options are available through Paypal.
Bitcoin for those who can.
Participating organizations are required to have a website and are encouraged to place a link from their website to the www.recycles.org website. When we approve your website and application to use our service, you are ready to make requests. Visit our linking ideas and logo page here, or write us direct if you have questions.
Promoting our service to friends and to the Internet community at-large is equally important. If you're a blogger, please write. Likewise, if you twee, use facebook, LinkedIn or other social media tools please mention us often.
A simple guideline for giving is this: If you benefit from our work, please give back a fair portion so that we may continue to meet our expense obligations. We want to make this exchange process simple for everyone, so your giving is voluntary, and payments are accepted on an honor system. Your giving is necessary for our continued survival. Contributions to the Recycles.Org exchange network are not tax-deductible.
Philosophy on Giving
One of the best lessons on giving may be seen mounted between two sheets of glass at a desert store in Southern California. It was written with a stub of pencil on two sides of a sheet of wrapping paper which had been folded and placed for protection in a tin baking powder can. The can had been wired to an old pump which offered the only chance of water on a very long and seldom used trail across the Amargosa Desert.

Comments from Nonprofit ParticipantsFrom Randy in Virginia
"I do not know if you are aware of this, but you are providing a service that no one else offers. As you know, I represent a very small church that does not have the resources to drive to far away locations to pick up items. As a result we continue to search for people that are willing to ship. I just wanted to let you know a little bit of the good that you are doing. If I could write code I would try to help you in maintaining the site. I know that God will bless you for your help to others. Let me add, May God bless you! Thank You."From Jerry in Ohio
"Thanks so much for the service you provide. I have had the opportunity to take advantage of it a couple of times and hope to do so in the future. Your service is of great benefit to small non-profit organizations like us. Thanks again!"From Carol in Texas
