What happens to donated items that aren’t sold at Goodwill stores?

Items not sold are gathered in categories for recycling and salvage. We partner with a variety of recycling & salvage groups, as well as bulk buyers, to keep as much as possible out of our landfills. Being earth-friendly is an important aspect of who we are as an organization.


Does Goodwill pick up donations?
