What donations do you not want?

It’s hard to say “no thank you” to a donation, but, please know that if an item is not in clean, saleable condition, the costs of handling or disposal will pull funds that would otherwise support programs and services. Management reserves the right to refuse any donation. Please dispose of these items through an alternative responsible resource, such as your local recycling center. Unfortunately, we cannot accept the following:

  • Large household appliances (stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.)
  • Items which do not work (televisions, microwave ovens, copy machines)
  • Building materials (carpet, shutters, doors, windows, bricks, etc.)
  • Mattresses, box springs
  • Upholstered couches and chairs which are torn, soiled or otherwise damaged
  • Televisions as follows:
  • Large console model televisions and stereos are extremely heavy and present a danger to our employees.
  • Non-cable-ready TVs cannot be connected to digital converter boxes and have no resell value.
  • Broken/damaged TVs are potentially dangerous and have no resell value.
  • Black and white TVs have no resell value
  • Automobile parts (tires, wheels, batteries, seats, etc.)
  • Paint or chemicals of any kind
