Recycle! Reuse! Reduce! REWARD!

Reward! Do you have extra plastic hangers (the kind with metal swivel hooks) or large clear vinyl/plastic bags with zippers on them? If so, you can bring them to the store and receive 25 cents store credit for each one we accept. We are especially looking for child-sized hangers right now. Reusable bags are now available at the counter so if you have extras, bring them in to help keep our supply available. They include good condition shopping bags as well as canvas and vinyl ones. We are also accepting packaging materials like styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap. It's great to recycle those items and keep them out of the landfill!


Thank you for the great response to our recently expanded collection programs. We are now accepting the following items that will be forwarded to the appropriate charitable organizations:

* Non perishable food - Northern Illinois Food Bank

* Baby items (unopened packages of diapers, wipes, etc.) - Northern Illinois Food Bank

* Old furs - Humane Society of the United States

* Old blankets - Naperville Humane Society

* Coke Rewards bottlecaps - Naperville Humane Society

* Old eyeglasses - Lions Club International

* Old cellphones - Cellphones for Soldiers
