The Materials Center is closed for the summer.
We will be accepting donations again after August 19th and all appointments to visit the Materials Center will begin in the fall. If you would like to be on our mailing list, please sign up at so that you will learn about our EDUCATOR ONLY shopping days at the end of the summer.


Teaching Beyond the Square is one of many donateNYC partner organizations in New York City that work to divert waste from landfills, by recycling, re-purposing, re-using or re-distributing items that New Yorkers no longer want. More than 40 non-profit organizations are dedicated to helping New York City reach its zero-waste to landfills goal by 2030. Visit the donateNYC website for more information about flea markets, partner organizations, donating goods, and events around the city.
