Donation Station Sandwich Sign web.png


The Arc’s Donation Station, located in Woodstock, CT, is the only donation/redemption center in the region, bringing in over 36,000 items a week for our 9 employees to process.


Employees unload, sort, crush and send containers on their way to new lives as chair webbing or other brand new items. The Station, located next to The Arc Emporium thrift store, is the only one of its kind in eastern Connecticut.


Crew members are trained in the operation of the machinery, sorting, and feeding the machines in this growing—and extremely important—field. The public can also drop off returnables directly at the Station for either donation or redemption. Donations greatly appreciated and help defray our overhead costs so we can continue to provide these vital employment opportunities to people with IDD.

  • Easy public drop-off for donated bottles and cans directly at The Donation Station 7 days/week

  • Over 30 additional collection sites throughout eastern Connecticut

You can help!    

  • Save bottles and cans at home and deposit them in our local bins or bring them to The Donation Station.

  • Think about events or other places where people can collect and drop-off their redeemables for us.
