We get quite a few items that we cannot sell. Clothes, shoes, pillows, and blankets that are not quite good enough to put in our store, are sent to an organization that deals with the homeless. Fabric items (clothes, bedding, linens) that are too worn, torn, or have missing buttons or broken zippers are sent away to be recycled. We also try to recycle as many of the remaining items as we can; but everything else is garbage. We get a lot of that, and we have to pay for it.
Hard plastics can no longer be recycled. Which means that if you leave us things made out of this that cannot be sold, we have to pay to have them hauled away as garbage. So please give these items some extra consideration before bringing them to us. If possible, come by Tuesdays or Thursdays, between 9:00AM and noon, when we are here to check them out.
