Unfortunately, there are certain items we are unable to take for reasons of liability, health issues or disposal costs. Please remember that we can only accept re-usable and re-sellable items.

Nonprofits incur expenses when recycling and disposing of non-working donations. These expenses divert funds away from programs, so please help us further by not leaving unacceptable items at any drop off location. This constitutes illegal dumping.
