Have an old appliance or two that you want out of the house? Maybe you recently remodeled your kitchen or laundry room and upgraded to all new appliances, or just replaced one with a new-and-improved version but the old one still has life left in it?
Whatever the case, you can donate almost any unneeded appliance to St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) — just call, and we’ll take it from there!
SVdP offers free pickup and removal of major household appliances from most residential locations in Eugene-Springfield, and also in Florence. Just call 541-345-0595 in Eugene-Springfield, or 541-997-8460 in Florence, to confirm that we can come pick up your donated refrigerator, freezer, washer, dryer, range or other appliance.
Or, if you’re able to deliver them yourself, appliances are accepted daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at any St. Vinnie’s store location with a drive-through donation lane.
Appliances also can be dropped off every day but Sunday at the St. Vinnie’s Car Lot and donation center, 1175 Hwy. 99N in Eugene. SVdP’s appliance-recycling operation also happens at that site, so donations dropped off at any other location will ultimately end up there anyway for testing, troubleshooting and touchups as needed.
(Please note that RV appliances are not accepted as donations, and home pickup is not offered for gas appliances.)
Spinning new good from old things
Appliance repair, resale and recycling have helped fund SVdP’s local social-service programs since 1955. Those that need simple repairs are refurbished, painted and sold (typically with a 90-day warranty) in St. Vinnie’s retail-thrift stores. Those that can’t be repaired are deconstructed and recycled in an environmentally responsible manner.
In either case, your tax-deductible appliance donations spin off revenue to fund SVdP’s local efforts in human services, affordable housing, employment, and recycling programs that elevate environmental stewardship.
Proceeds from appliance sales and parts recycling directly support many critical services for community members struggling with homelessness and poverty. So not only will your tax-deductible donation lighten loads at local landfills, it will help your most vulnerable neighbors.
SVdP is Lane County’s largest nonprofit human-services organization and an internationally recognized leader in developing waste-based enterprises — which also include the nation’s oldest and largest mattress-recycling operation.
