How Scheduling & Collection Works

retrievr offers an easy collection of the valuable but unused items that tend to sit idle in customers’ closets, drawers, and storage spaces. Today, retrievr focuses on clothing, accessories, and electronics, and will collect these items from the customer’s doorstep. Customers may request a collection by sending a text message or visiting retrievr.com.

retrievr and the Retrievr Rewards program is intended for personal use only. Commercial use is prohibited. This program is not targeted towards, not intended for use by, anyone under the age of 13. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may only use Retrievr Rewards under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms of Use.

Please read the Privacy Statement carefully to understand how retrievr collects, uses, and discloses information about customers and how to update or change your personal information and how we communicate with you.

How Retrievr Rewards Works

As part of our efforts to encourage recycling, retrievr looks for ways for customers to share in the value of what they are recycling, and we from time to time offer various promotions in the form of rewards that customers can earn for taking environmentally friendly actions.

Prior rewards included the offer of a gift card or donation (made in the customer’s name) for taking pictures of the items being recycled.

The current Retrievr Rewards program takes the form of a Trade-In program. For a limited time, retrievr will publish a price list for a specific set of brands of jeans, jackets / outerwear, sweaters, and smartphones. retrievr will continue to collect any and all items on our accepted items list; we will only offer trade-in value for the specific brands on our target list.

Customers will identify their trade-in items as they schedule their collection. retrievr will inspect the items collected. After your collection is processed, retrievr will inform you whether any of your items have been accepted, the total trade-in value you earned, and instructions for how to redeem your gift card.

retrievr reserves the right to change the trade-in values and the list of acceptable brands at any time.

Earning Rewards

How Retrievr Rewards Works

To be eligible to earn a trade-in reward, customers must:

  • Use retrievr’s online scheduling form
  • Identify and list out the type of item (e.g., sweater, jeans) and the brand for each item in their collection that matches the target list
  • Certify that each item meets or exceeds our minimum acceptable condition (see below)
  • Separate all trade-in items into a separate bag or box clearly labeled “Trade In”
  • Include on the label the customer’s name and mobile phone number

Acceptance Standards
retrievr only offers trade-in value for items that meet our strict acceptance standards. Each item will be evaluated to determine, in our sole discretion, whether the item meets the criteria below.

For apparel:

  • Is in excellent, new, or like-new condition;
  • Is free from stains, pilling, holes, odor, and any other signs of wear;
