What We Offer

For over 30 years, CMRK has remained committed to serving the diverse needs of New England’s towns, academic institutions, businesses, municipalities, and communities. We pride ourselves on being your trusted source for keeping your once-loved items out of landfills and giving them a second chance for reuse. CMRK owns a range of mobile asset solutions that are used to create customized municipal and personal repurposing solutions that divert reusable items from landfills.

Full Service Partnership

Alongside our community partners, we cultivate long-term relationships with communities, businesses, and individuals in order to raise funds that directly make a difference in your community.

We've Got You Covered

From scheduling FREE at-home pickups and servicing collection containers to providing service updates and coordinating fundraising initiatives for your organization, CMRK is committed to working with you so you can give back to your community in the most meaningful way possible.


Working with buyers, suppliers, and wholesalers, we provide an extensive range of products available for wholesale or retail distribution. A portion of the funds generated go towards the life-changing work of our partners, making a direct difference in your community.

Preparing for a Home Pickup

CMRK thanks you for scheduling a home pickup of your items. Please refer to the guidelines below for how your items should be prepared.

  1. Clothing and shoes: plastic garbage bags labeled CMRK/ the Initialism of the community partner (for example The Big Brother Big Sister Foundation would be BBBSF). We cannot accept items on behalf of charities we are not partnered with. For information on our community partners, click here
  2. Dishes and breakable items: properly wrapped and packed in boxes as if you were moving (30lbs max per box)
  3. Small miscellaneous household items: packed in a labeled and sealed box marked CMRK/Community Partner Initials

In the event of bad weather, please place items in a plastic garbage bag, tied and labelled, and turn the bag upside down.

Please make sure your donations are clearly visible and placed outside no later than 7am on the day of your scheduled pickup. You can expect your items to be picked up between the hours of 7am and 5pm.

No, our drivers are not permitted to enter homes.

Your donation will be picked up sometime between 7:00am to 5:00pm. CMRK is proud to service several hundred households per day. As a result, we are unable to provide our customers with a specific pickup time.

We are very sorry to hear that your donation was not picked up. Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

We do pick up in all types of weather, including rain and light snow. However, if driving conditions are unsafe or if there is a State of Emergency, we will cancel our pickup routes for that day. In the event that your pickup was cancelled, we will reach out to reschedule as quickly as possible.
