January comes with a mood to clean the closet, bookshelves, and the entire house for some. And now you have a pile of clothes you no longer wear, books you’ve read and re-read and even pieces of furniture that no longer fit your aesthetic. But this time, instead of discarding them, you can choose to donate them. If you are on board, here are a few NGOs who would be happy to take them off your hands and put the stuff to good use.


Left with scrap such as  newspapers, metal, plastic bottles, etc? They can be donated too. ReCircle not only recycles them, but also uses the proceeds from it to help people in need.
Call: 9004240004


Goonj, which works with disaster affected regions as well as towards sanitation, women’s menstrual health and education throughout the country, accepts everything from clothes to shoes and utensils. They organise monthly collection camps throughout Mumbai, and accept drop offs at their centres in Dahisar, Kalyan and Worli.

Green Yatra

If this drive ends up with you staring at old electronic items such as mobile phones, laptop, washing machine or a microwave, which can neither be repaired or passed on to someone else, recycling them is perhaps the way to go. Green Yatra will pick up your goods, sort them, repair if possible or recycle them.
Call: 9967538049

Share At Door Step

If you are left with a mix bag of books, clothes, furniture, shoes, stationery and more, and looking for one place that is happy to pick them all, Share At Door Step is here to help. Their staff will collect these items from your doorstep, sort them out and donate them to the right NGOs. They do charge a small convenience fee.
