Post Drop Off: Haymaker Kent 6/16/18

Today we were able to collect over 300 pounds of used kitchen equipment at our drop off event at Haymaker Farmers Market in Kent!

It was wonderful to have been at a market that is so local to us! We were able to not only collect used kitchen equipment, but also to bring awareness about our non-profit organization in our home town!

We had a great time meeting everyone that came out yesterday to donate, or who just stumbled upon us!

A special thank you to Andrew Rome and his crew at the Haymaker Market. It is truly such a beautiful market and we are so appreciative to have been able to be a part of it today.

Look for us at our next drop off event on July 12 at Countryside Conservancy’s Highland Square 4-7 PM!

Upcoming Event: Drop Off at Haymaker Market

We are just 11 short days away from our second drop off event for the season!

On June 16th we will be at the Haymaker Farmers Market in Kent from 9 AM-1 PM to collect any kitchen item donations you may have! Come see us, drop off your old plates and bowls, and shop the beautiful market they put on every week!

Not familiar with how our drop off events work? Here’s how it goes: You grab your friends, sort through your old, used, kitchenware, and bring it to the market in boxes or bags. You find us at the market, we will have volunteers on site to help carry boxes or bags from your cars to ours. You drop off your donated items, collect your tax deductible receipt, if desired, and shop the market!

Can’t make it to this market drop off? Find us at these drop offs later in the summer:

Can’t make it to any of our drop offs? Remember, you can always drop off to us at 632 Temple Ave, Kent, OH 44240 at any time! Just leave your donated items under the red awning if we’re not there! Or for the Columbus area, drop off to us at 1400 Food Lab during normal business hours.

Post Drop Off: Howe Meadow 5/5


THANK YOU! To everyone that came to Countryside Conservancy at Howe Meadow and brought their kitchen item donations with them! We were able to completely fill THREE cars full of donated items.


A special thank you to Katie (not pictured) and Alanna (left) for volunteering their time today to help us and to Countryside for having us at their market!

Missed us today? Our next drop off event is on June 16 at Kent Haymaker Farmers Market. We gladly accept donations 24/7 at 632 Temple Ave. in Kent or you can call us to schedule a pick up!

Summer Drop Off Events 2018

This summer we are partnering with local farmers markets to be on site to collect your kitchen item locations while you shop this summer. Our to-date list includes us being at the following markets on the following dates:

We are excited for a busy summer! Come check out a farmers market you haven’t gotten the chance to see yet, or spend some time at your usual one this summer. We will have volunteers on site at each drop off to help carry boxes or bags of your used kitchen item donations.

Hope to see you at one (or more!) of these drop-off events!

Holiday Message- Shelving Need

Throughout the holiday season it is important to consider those less fortunate. While you’re preparing holiday meals and dishes, you are likely to come across old kitchen items you no longer use, please consider passing those items along to us at Recycle Pots and Pans to help those in need.

We accept any items you would use in the kitchen, new or used, including pots and pans, plates and flatware, baking pans and utensils, and even kitchen towels and pot holders. If you have an item you are unsure if we accept, please message us, we are more than willing to help answer any questions.

To better store and organize items that come in so that we can get them back out to those in need, we are also in need of shelving units. If you have any shelving units, new or old, you are willing to donate, please contact us. If you are interested in gifting a new shelving unit to our 501c3 organization please see the link here for a unit we are interested in, or feel find another one. Please contact us if you have interest in us picking up a shelving unit from you, or you can have it delivered to us at 632 Temple Ave., Kent, OH 44240.

Thank you for your continuous support this season and this year.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Recycle Pots and Pans.

New Partner: Warriors Project

We have recently added another partner to our list of those agencies and organizations we work with in Northeast Ohio. We are very glad to now be partnering with The Warriors Project.

The Warriors Project is a nonprofit organization based out of Canton, OH focused on treatment and detox placement of those struggling with addiction. Tiny Lawson and his co-founder, Jeff Wilson, are working hard to help those with addictions as well as their families and friends, who often get overlooked in the process of recovery. They use a faith based approach and are focused on reclaiming our communities, one person at a time.

We are very thankful to be working with this organization to help those who have been affected by addiction. For more information on The Warriors Project, please visit


Shelving Need


We are so thankful that we have been able to bring in so many donations this summer. From our drop off events with Countryside Conservancy, to the items that our exposure on New Day Cleveland gave us, we brought in lots of great things!

We are still working on sorting through and organizing these items for our agencies to be able to pull from, which brings us to our need of shelving! If you are looking for a way to help our organization, please consider a donation of shelving units! We will gladly accept any used (or new!) to help us be able to keep our space, full of wonderful donated kitchen items, organized.

Thank you!

Post Drop Off Event: Aug 12 @ Howe Meadow

Thank you so much to everyone who donated kitchen items today at our Howe Meadow drop off. We do not have a measurement of how many pounds we took in yet but we had one very full van!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped us pack boxes into the van and unpack once we got back from the market!

If you missed us today at the market, you can always drop off under the red awning at 632 Temple Ave, Kent or schedule a pick up with us via email.
