ExcessAccess.org has been completely transformed. In order to provide widespread “access” to man-made and natural “excess” the site has become bionic.  It’s faster, more convenient, full of great new features and it’s completely free!  Everyone can wish and everyone can post donations.

 With a brand new user-friendly design, built-in follow through timers, tax-deductible receipts, quick post duplication, “no explanation necessary” cancellation and wonderful new browsing options it is easier than ever to get and give.  The program respects members by sending only the most necessary reminders for active items on their accounts without any annoying spam.

Excess Access now offers 2 options for the inkind donor.  Matching is done in-house and automatic email alerts do everything after the initial posting including selecting recipients on a first-come first-served basis.  Or, for those who prefer a more hands-on approach, the new system allows choosing recipients from waiting lists, browsing wishes and gifts, and making potential match queries.  The improved site is now more flexible to meet your needs whether you want a single, simple action, or a range of choices and both offer speed and privacy.  It is expertly designed to work for everyone.

The Excess Access team spent over 18 months completely optimizing and modernizing every aspect of the system.  And, we are launching our newly updated Excess Access system on our 15th Anniversary, as a HUGE CHEER to celebrate all the returning and new member charities, schools, businesses, government offices and households for being so supportive, generous and ecological!  Thank You!

OK Let’s get sorting, recycling and reusing as much as we can everywhere!


ExcessAccess.org matches business and household item donations with the wish lists of those nearby who can provide pick-ups or will accept drop-offs.  Continually collecting and inputting your excellent ideas, together Excess Access members are getting surplus goods into the hands of those in need and keeping thousands of tons of useful materials out of the waste stream. Everybody wins! Now serving the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, France and beyond.
