For Individuals

Thank you for helping improve the game.


Who is this for?
This newly changed program is for individuals with over 100 tennis balls. The program features instant UPS shipping labels and an immediate tax receipt.  You will need to supply your own boxes. Are you looking for a comprehensive program for your organization? Please see our QUICKSHIP program here .
Is there a cost?
We ask for a small donation of $15 per label to cover part of the shipping fee. You will receive a tax deduction for any tennis balls donated that should give you a positive financial benefit.
How large is my financial benefit?
While we cannot legally recommend a value for donated balls, many folks are claiming and receiving .40 per tennis ball donated. If you donate say 200  tennis balls using one label, that’s a $95 tax deduction (balls and label) or a  $33.25  direct cash benefit based on using a 35% rate. Your direct cash benefit may vary.
We’ve made it EASY!
1) GET LABELS: Just tell us how many boxes you will ship and we will email you shipping labels – almost instantly! Boxes can be almost any size that can be handled by one person.
2) SHIP: Drop off your labeled box(es) anywhere UPS picks up or delivers. UPS will take these when they deliver or pickup.
3) RECEIVE TAX DEDUCTIONS and FEEL AMAZING! We will email you a receipt as soon as we receive your shipment.

Why recycle with us?
We are a youth-driven 501 (c) 3 nonprofit with a mission to recycle and reuse all tennis balls in the USA. As a nonprofit, you will receive a tax deduction and the peace of mind that every one of your tennis balls will be kept out of U.S. landfills and turned into green solutions or products.
How quickly will I get a receipt?
RecycleBalls will provide an automatic email receipt as soon as we receive any shipment from you. This receipt will note the date and the number of tennis balls donated. It’s up to you to fill in the value. You will get a receipt every time we receive a shipment from you.
Should all printed labels have the same weight and addresses?
Yes. We use special labels from UPS tracked to you via the barcode. All of these labels indicate 26Lbs and have the same addresses on purpose. Please apply ONE label per box that you are shipping and they will get to us.
How many balls fit in standard boxes?
The following will give you an idea how many tennis balls fit into different sized boxes. Please use the largest boxes possible.

Who assigns a value to the tennis balls for my tax deduction?
The IRS requires the donor (you) to assign values to non-cash charitable donations. The value is not the original purchase price but the estimated resale value in its current condition.
What are my used tennis balls worth as a tax deduction?
As an example, if you donate 1,000 tennis balls over the course of the year and you choose to value these at $.40 each, then this could be a $400 tax deduction. It is up to you to determine this value.
What forms will I need to file my tax return?
If the total deduction for noncash charitable contributions is $500 or less, you may claim the entire amount on Schedule A. If over $500; you will need to fill out the applicable sections of Form 8283 to support your Schedule A amount.
How does the QUICKSHIP program differ from your QUICKLABEL program?
