Ridwell makes it easy to recycle, reuse and donate the items you no longer need. You collect; we pick it up. Then, we work with local partners to put all that stuff to good use.

We believe small actions still matter
Ridwell was started by a dad and his son on a mission to dispose of stuff responsibly. (Turns out, that's no small feat!)
Today, we're a community-based service that helps people waste less by collecting items they no longer need.
Our members receive a Ridwell bin and clearly marked bags for collecting their used items. Bins and overflow bags are picked up bi-weekly.
What exactly do we take? Ridwell focuses on items not generally accepted curbside like plastic bags and film, batteries*, lightbulbs, and threads (like shoes and clothes).
There's also a featured category that rotates every two weeks. It might be eyeglasses one week and bike tires a few weeks later. And, yes, we'll let you know in advance!
* Availability varies by neighborhood
To bring our service full circle, we work with local and regional partners to find an appropriate place to recycle, upcycle, or donate the items we collect.
I'm really excited for an opportunity to reduce my waste even more! Even with 'standard' recycling options, there are gaps I've been struggling to find a solution for. Ridwell is that solution and I can't wait for them to come to Denver!

I had no idea how much plastic film I used until I started collecting it in my Ridwell bag. I also love the textile bag -- we've hung on to shoes, slippers, old rags, clothes for years because I don't want them going in the landfill but they're cluttering up my house. I love your service spirit of giving items (toiletries) to people in need. I can't say enough good things.
