It may not be something you think about every day, but at ACTS Thrift we think about ourselves as a form of recycling for the community. You and the rest of our neighbors bring us well-loved clothes, home goods, toys, books and whatever it is you no longer need, and we provide those things back to people who need or want them for just a few bucks. And all of those dollars you spend go back to the community to organizations, partners and your local ACTS employees. It’s a virtuous circle of giving, buying and giving that helps everyone in Pasadena and the surrounding area. See, recycling into reuse into dollars into community.
Not only did they pick up items for resale, ACTS also picks up E-waste. When I was visiting their wonderful thrift store, which supports local charities, I noticed an area next to the store that read "We pick up E-waste". I live in a large condo complex and we have asked our residents not to put toxic electronic items in the trash. So we created an area where they can put it. When it gets full, I schedule a pick-up with ACTS. What a great service - it's a win-win!
My tenants left a couple of big old tvs and some computer monitors. I called ACTS to schedule a free pick up. It was a very good experience, the dispatcher was very nice, and he set up a convenient pick up time for me. The truck driver called me before. The service was exceptionally awesome. I can get rid of e-waste as well as help other people. I highly recommend calling ACTS to dispose of your e-waste.
I was very impressed with this service, they called to tell me they were coming between 10 and 12 and I asked if they could please come at 12:30. They said they would see what they could do and they did show up right at 12:30! The driver was very polite and he loaded up all my stuff and gave me a receipt.
I am thrilled with your service, and love that I can make an appointment so easily online.
The service was excellent and they came within the time as promised. The staff who picked up our donation were professional and gentle with the donation. I highly recommend ACTS donation pick up to everyone. Thanks so much.
ACTS donation drivers were professional and kind. They were on time, and great personality. Scheduling the pick-up was easy and convenient on-line. I highly recommend ACTS donation pick-up.
Great service! I'd use them again in a heartbeat.
We are in the process of moving our family from a home that we have lived in for nearly four decades. Since we have lots of items that we have gathered over the years, we must now sort through our belongings and slim down what we will move to our next home. ACTS has been a God-sent! The dispatcher at ACTS was courteous, helpful with advice and sensitive to our needs. The driver and helper were prompt, efficient and courteous. It has been a pleasure to partner with you as part of our “moving team”.
ACTS is a blessing to the communities it serves. So many families are struggling in these difficult and uncertain times. Help ACTS to continue to be a blessing by supporting their mission!
ACTS THRIFT STORE made it very easy to make the donations. My daughter is very pleased that some needy persons will benefit from her donations to the ACTS THRIFT STORE. The truck arrived within the time period that it was scheduled to come. The men were very courteous and helpful to me and explained what they could and could not take as donations. Your organization was very good about returning calls and communicating clearly. I would recommend ACTS THRIFT STORE to others.
ACTS donation pick up was everything I had hoped for. We had 2 reclining chairs that we really wanted to go to a good home as they were only 1 1/2 years old, but didn't match our decor any longer. The pick up was on time and the driver was friendly and efficient. He had all the equipment he needed to to the job on his own. Thank you!
