What time will The Arc pick up my items?
We pick up donations all throughout the day. Our pick up hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Do I need to be at my home when you pick up my donation?
No! We want to make the process as simple as possible for you. Leave the items outside where we can find them and mark them clearly with a note for Arc.
Should I mark my donation?
Please label your donation “Arc” and leave outside where our drivers can clearly see the donation. We do not come inside your home.
What kind of items do you not accept?
Please visit our donation page for more details on acceptable donations.
Does everything need to be in bags or boxes?
Items must be in a bag, box, or tied bundle and marked “Arc”. We prefer bags if possible.

How does the tax deduction part of my donation work?
We leave a tax deductible receipt that is signed. It is up to you to declare a fair market value to your items for your taxes.
Our drivers leave a donation receipt at the time the donations are picked up.
