Clothing and Household Items

Goodwill accepts donations of gently used clothing, household items and furniture. However, we are unable to provide home pick up service. Donations can be made at our stores and donation centers. The list below is to be used as a guideline. There are many items we can sell in stores that are not on the list.

Goodwill is pleased to accept

  • Clothing
  • Footwear, Shoes, Boots, Sandals, Slippers, etc.
  • Outerwear
  • Jewelry & Accessories (handbags, ties, belts, scarves)
  • Antiques & Collectibles
  • Books
  • CDs, Records, Videotapes & DVDs
  • Games & Toys

 

  • Housewares (dishes, glasses, knick-knacks)
  • Linens & Rugs
  • Art
  • Sports Equipment
  • Musical Instruments
  • Furniture
    (NOTE: only at selected locations: search for your local store page to see if they accept furniture or call your local store to be sure.)

Give to Goodwill what you would give to a friend.



What Not To Donate

The cost of disposing certain items takes away from funds we invest in our employment and training programs. We appreciate your donations and your help in keeping unsafe, broken or non-working items out of our stores by not donating items that do not meet current safety standards due to recalls or bans. As a result of the new e-waste recycling law in Pennsylvania, Goodwill has received a high-volume of TVs that we are unable to sell or that we can't recycle. We DO accept computers, monitors, etc. We work with Dell Reconnect in recycling computers. We are working to find a vendor that will help us recycle TVs. Until then, we are sorry that we can't take your TV donation.

Items we cannot accept

  • Air Conditioners
  • Any Recalled Items
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Hazardous Chemicals
  • Household Chemicals

 

  • Infant Furniture (Cribs, Highchairs, Car Seats, Strollers, etc.)
  • Kerosene Heaters
  • Large Appliances
  • Large Exercise Equipment
  • Lawn Mowers

 

  • Mattresses
  • Small Engines
  • Tires
  • TVs
  • Weapons



Goodwill Not Using Donation Bins

Several years ago, Goodwill Keystone Area removed donation bins* in favor of having real people receive your donation at our donation centers. It is important for the community to know that these donation bins, even if blue in color, are not Goodwill donation bins.

*As part of a recycling test, we currently have four bins in Oxford Township, Chester County. These bins are still in a trial phase.

For more information, please contact the store nearest you, or call 800.432.GIVE (4483).
