Pesach Cleaning? Dozens of Clothing Donation Bins Available Around Town

PHOTOS: If you’ve been driving around town lately, you will have noticed the dozens of clothing drop off trucks popping up all over the place. Many of the bins, are those of the Lakewood Cheder/Deja New Campaign – which give clothing a second life.

Inside each truck, there is a partition separating the usable and unusable items being dropped off. Clothing and shoes which are in great wearable condition, are sent to Deja New. Unusable clothing, teddy bears, linen, towels and the like are sold to textile companies, benefiting the Lakewood Cheder.

All clothing placed on the useable side of the trucks are carefully sorted by volunteers of Deja New. Deja New is a store, where clothing is sold for very cheap. Prices range between .10 cents-$6. All the proceeds from these purchases, go to Tzedakas such as Tomchei Shabbos, Ein Oid Milvado, Bikur Cholim, Lev L’achim, Tiferes Devorah L’kallah, Keren Shoshana, and many more.

All items placed in the unusable side of the truck are sold for the Lakewood Cheder. The Cheder sells the clothes to companies which sell the stuff to thrift shops and third world countries. Items which are in rag condition are recycled as ‘Shmattes’.

Free pick ups are available 24/6 by calling 732-370-6408, extension 1.

The Deja New/Cheder drops off locations are:

Madison Ave & 1st St. (2 separate trucks).

7th & Forest

7th & The Tracks (Park Ave)

Central & Rt. 9

14th & Tangelwood

Westgate: Hillside & Kelmwoods

New this year:

Pesach time and throughout the year deja new offers a drop off for the usable clothing at 66 Birch St, and at the gemach 172 Regent Drive. For unusable clothing only, at NPGS James St.

  1. Shaimos may also be dropped off at these clothing bins which are by
    10h & Clifton
    Westgate
    Central & rt9
    rt9 south (next door to leisure)
    and 14th & Forest

  2. I have clothing that is totally usable, but not the most up-to date. Or it is in good condition, but not perfect. Are there any clothing collections around that send clothing to Eretz Yisroel? I know deja new only wants current styles, but this is perfectly usuable and it is a shame that it should go to third world countries,when poor people in Eretz Yisroel would be more than happy with it?

  3. Deja New helps out many of the families in my neighborhood throughout the year. Its an amazing amazing store/gemach, The people involved should all be blessed.
    Its great that they offer so many convenient locations during this busy hectic pesach season.
    Also so amazing to see two local organizations working together.

    great going everyone!

  4. I have almost new clothing to give away. I don’t want them to be sold as rags for a few pennies, when they can be worn by somebody who could use them. Which of these containers around town are actually given to poor people to wear? I think they should start specifying please….

  5. to # 7:
    read the article, if u drop off your clothes in the locations specified in the above article, they will be distributed locally thru deja new.

  6. to #4:
    you can call deja new @ 7329660262, i believe they distribute those clothes to the E”Y gemachs.
    you may also look in the phone book under gemachs and you will see E”Y gemachs listed.

  7. looking to donate all the dishes I receive purim time. Closed boxes and some not. Can’t stuff one more cake platter in the closet!

  8. to #11: I saw an ad in the bp -one of the local boys yeshivas collects all unwanted (good condition) items – seems like they take most items (toys, gifts, books etc.).I’d imagine they’d take your baskets, dishes etc. on the ad, it lists the places to drop stuff off as: 1200 shafto (costume closeouts), 51 coles way, 14 negba, & 123 east caranetta. hope this helps.

  9. How come my comments made on the 17th and 4th in line are still “awaiting moderation” and 13 other comments have been successfully “moderated”

    So once again…..The SPECIAL CHILDREN’S CENTER does a tremendous amount of chessed for Lakewood’s Special Kids and their families. They really are a SPECIAL MOSSAD. They also have clothing bins around town and would benefit from EVERY kind of clothing item donated!

  10. yes special childrens center is a wonderful wonderful organization, 1 member of our family is a member of the center which means my entire family is a recipient of their amazing chesed, specifically respite. they def deserve every dollar they earn. however this article was just coming from the scoop as a courtesy to the community to show where the community may drop off their clothing which is in good wearable condition, which will then actually be worn by people in need. but for ur unusable clothing, the cheder as well as center as well as any tzedaka are all amazing.

  11. to number 17

    the special children center is a great place, just if you want your cloths to be reworn by lakewood families then you should drop it off by one of the bins in town that go to dejnew
