& distribution

About our recycling program & distribution center:

The Recycling Program and Distribution Center are vital aspects of Yakima Union Gospel Mission's ministries. Started in 1997, our Recycling Program provides work opportunities and helps to raise funds for YUGM ministries - and helps us avoid adding to the growing landfill and depletion of resources.


Recycling and Distribution have grown substantially over the years and currently process all sorts of things - from unwanted cardboard, some electronics, select metals, aluminum cans and clothing!

How can you help?


Donate your gently used clothing, furniture & household goods. The Distribution Center will then sort your donation and allocate the goods to Men's Clothing Room, Family Shelter's Clothing Room, The Olde Lighthouse Shoppe or inventory for Men's Day & Women's Day.​​​​

Donation Drop-off Location:

1220 B. N 1st Street
