Share Our Spare will be picking up donations in the Western suburbs area including Aurora, Berwyn, Burr Ridge, Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, La Grange, Naperville, Oak Brook, Oak Brook Terrace, Oak Park, River Forest, Riverside, Villa Park, Western Springs, Westmont, and Wheaton between the hours of 11:30-4 pm. Register here to reserve your pickup slot for that day. Please note you will not have a scheduled time given that our route could change as additional pickups are added.
Our van has limited space and we need to ensure space for all donors who have paid for a pickup. We ask that you only leave out donations for your household. If you are looking to collect from neighbors contact us in advance so we can schedule a separate pickup for you.
We have a no-contact pickup procedure to ensure donor and staff safety in the wake of COVID-19. If you are feeling ill or have come in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 please contact us to reschedule your pickup.
Your pickup fee helps us cover the cost of our van, gas, and staff time. Thank you for your generous support!
If you need to cancel your pickup please do so at least 48 hours in advance of the day. If you need to cancel your pickup please email our Operations Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. After 48 hours we will no longer be able to refund you your pickup fee. Thank you for your cooperation.
Helpful notes for donation pickups:
Please ensure that the items you intend to donate are clean, in working order, and have all of the pieces before packing them up for pick up. Share Our Spare does not accept cribs, car seats, or furniture. We have temporarily stopped accepting toys. Make sure to double check the list of items we accept by clicking here
The Share Our Spare driver is unable to enter your home to collect donations. Please make sure to bring everything outside in a covered, accessible area or be available by phone to bring everything out when our driver arrives.
If the pickup window on this day doesn’t work for you, don’t worry we’ll be back in your area soon! You can also check our website for donation drop off times at the Sharehouse at 3700 N. Kilbourn Chicago, IL 60641.
