ExCL is a shoppers paradise – well that, and a clearinghouse that recovers tons of material from being burned or thrown away and redistributes it for creative educational use. You won’t believe all the amazing supplies and products we have available every time you visit. This isn’t junk, it’s terrific materials of all sorts.

Key Programs Offered: 

Teachers, group leaders, parents, and artists are able to obtain low-cost or no-cost recycled materials that offer unlimited creative opportunities to nurture learning, exploration, and discovery in classrooms, child care centers, youth groups, and beyond.

Business owners and manufacturers who have excess inventory, outdated stock, overruns, or seconds crowding their warehouse or office are eligible to participate in our tax-deductible recycling services. They reduce waste entering our landfills and help educators and service professionals with usable materials. Contact us at (617) 635-8284 if you’d like to make a materials donation. All donations are tax-deductible.

We offer two kinds of interactive workshops: 1. Workshops hosted at our site that you can register for; 2. Activities hosted at your site and fully facilitated by our staff.
