Goodwill Donation Guidelines

what to donateItems We Can Accept

Goodwill happily accepts the following new or gently used items:

  • Personal computers—hard drive/tower, monitor, mouse, keyboard and printer (please erase personal data before donating). Goodwill is a part of Dell Reconnect, a program that makes getting rid of old technology easy and free. Simply pack your old computer equipment into the car with other household donations and drop it off at a participating Goodwill location where the trained staff will inspect each item and determine whether to reuse, refurbish, or recycle it.

  • Flat-panel monitor HDTVs only (with the exception of rear-projection HDTVs)
  • Clothing, shoes and boots
  • Jewelry
  • Hats, gloves, mittens and scarves
  • Books, records, compact disks, video tapes and DVDs

what not to donateItems We Cannot Accept

It's hard to say "no thank you" to a donation when those donations help to fund Goodwill programs. However, we do need to refuse some items for being non-recyclable or containing hazardous materials. Other times, the item must be refused because it costs more to transport, repair or refurbish than it can be sold for in our stores. Our donation attendants are trained to know what we can and cannot accept, and will help guide you to other possibilities for donations we cannot use.

We cannot accept the following items:

  • CRT and DLP TVs, or rear-projection flat screen HDTVs
  • Cribs
  • No household chemical products such as pesticides, paint, paint thinner, drain cleaner, oven cleaner, aerosols and other environmentally-unfriendly waste products.
  • No automotive hazardous waste such as tires, lead acid batteries, additives, gasoline, oils, antifreeze, etc.
  • No large appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves/ovens, washers/dryers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, furnaces, microwaves, trash compactors, water heaters, large console stereos, freon-based appliances, etc.

  • No fragrance items
  • No mattresses/box springs, including waterbed mattresses and waterbed frames
