New Goodwill donation center opens at University Heights Community Center

December 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Just in time for the holidays, Seattle Goodwill just opened a new donation collection site in the parking lot of the University Heights Community Center.

Please take into account the following when preparing your donation: Goodwill can’t fix items that are broken or are in poor condition and can’t except anything that’s been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. You can find a list of those items at And it seems like a no-brainer but it appears it needs to be said that they don’t accept hazardous, poisonous or flammable material.

Here’s a list of what they do take:
Antiques and Collectibles
BBQ grills (must be clean and without propane tanks)
Bed frames
Camping Equipment
Carpeting (new, never installed)
Cell Phones
CDs, records and cassettes
Clothing and accessories
Computers – desktop, laptop and monitors* (see below)
