Post-Drop Off Event May 20

Northeast Ohio: May 20th Countryside Conservancy Drop-Off

We are just under two weeks away from a drop-off event with Countryside Conservancy!

If you are in the Northeast Ohio area, this is a great opportunity for you to de-clutter your kitchen and check out Countryside Conservancy’s great Howe Meadow market!

We will have volunteers on-site to help carry any heavy boxes or bags with kitchen item donations, if needed!

New Years 2017

Happy New Year!

2016 was a year of tremendous growth for RP&P and we are very grateful. We appreciate all who have supported us, helped us grow, and spread the word about our nonprofit organization. We were able to help so many families and individuals last year and are looking forward to helping even more this year.

Making new years resolutions? If one of your hopes is to clean your kitchen cabinets, basements, or other storage areas, please keep us in mind if you find you have any kitchen items that you no longer use or need.

From all of us at Recycle Pots & Pans, we would like to wish you a very happy new year and thank you for helping us achieve and exceed our goals in 2016!

Shelving for the Holidays

This year has been a big year for Recycle Pots and Pans. We are so thankful for all the growth our supporters, donors, and friends have made possible this year. We have received many donations of kitchen items and have been able to help numerous people.

With the growth of RP&P this year, we are running into storage problems. While we have the space to store the kitchen items we get in, we are lacking the shelving to be able to sort and organize them. We are in need of shelving to better utilize our storage space, as well as make it more organized and accessible to those who come in to pull items for all of our agencies we support.

Here you will find a link from Uline for shelving. We also accept any other type of shelving, new or used.

If you are able or interested in donating shelving and/or have further questions, please email ( or call us (330-715-4140).

We thank you for all your support this year and always.
