Donation Stations

Due to the coronavirus emergency, Donation Stations are CLOSED until further notice.

Donation Stations are an option for residents that want to give their unwanted or unneeded clothing, household goods, books, etc. a second life. Reducing waste by repurposing unwanted but usable goods is an important part of the Fairfax County Environmental Vision.

Donation Drop SpotAttendants at the Donation Stations help residents unload items and provide a receipt for the donations. The collected items are prepared for sale in local thrift shops. Textiles that are no longer serviceable are recycled into carpet, upholstery, and other uses. Residents with unaccepted items can dispose of them in a different area of the site.

The Savers family of stores is a for-profit, global thrift retailer offering gently used clothing, accessories, and household goods. Their Rethink Reuse® business model of purchasing, reselling, and recycling gives communities a smart way to shop and keeps more than 700 million pounds of used goods out of the waste stream. They also help more than 100 nonprofit organizations by purchasing donated goods from them, which provides a source of revenue to help support their vital community programs and services. Locally, they operate Unique in Merrifield.
