Our Eco-friendly Charity Collects Donations in Communities throughout Columbus, OH, and Charlotte, NC

Eco-Friendly Charity Charlotte & ColumbusAs an eco-friendly charity serving both the Charlotte, NC, and Columbus, OH, areas, National Kidney Services (NKS) strives to raise awareness about kidney disease while promoting sustainable, eco-friendly donating practices. By donating used clothing and household items that you no longer want to our organization, you’re giving them a second home, keeping them out of landfills, and helping to support a variety of programs for kidney disease awareness, education, and prevention.

Whether you have a few small kitchen appliances that you no longer use, or a bag of clothes that your children have outgrown, NKS encourages you to donate these items to our eco-friendly charity instead of throwing them in the trash. Taking small steps to reduce the amount of waste you produce can have a huge impact on the environment. Here’s why:

  • The United States produces approximately half of the world’s total trash.
  • Fifteen percent of this “garbage” is made up of reusable, durable items.
  • The average American throws away about four and a half pounds of garbage each day.
  • Certain clothing materials can take up to 50 years to decompose in a landfill.
  • Metals and plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose in a landfill.

To request a free donation pick up from our eco-friendly green charity, call 866-408-6464 (Carolina) or 614-351-2900 (Ohio) to be added to our regular call list. You can also sign up online and we will contact you when donation collections are being scheduled in your neighborhood. In addition to this complimentary pickup service, Ohio Thrift stores throughout Columbus and Value Village stores throughout Charlotte have agreed to accept your tax-deductible* donations on our behalf.
