1-800-GOT-JUNK?... Always at the Ready!

1-800-GOT-JUNK? first approached Second Chance Toys to volunteer their services in 2008. It made sense at the time, since their mission is also green and they are committed to reuse and recycling. Now, ten years later, this long standing relationship continues to be a blessing for us.

Booz Allen Hamilton's Earth Month Collections Keep Growing!

In 2015 the Sustainability Program Management Office (PMO) at Booz Allen Hamilton, a technology and management consulting firm, coordinated and conducted their first collection of gently-used plastic toys at their McLean, VA headquarters. Since then, enthusiasm for the program has continued to spread to its many offices throughout the United States. Now in its fourth year, involvement surpassed all expectations, with 21 different collections taking place in 10 different states plus the District of Columbia.
