Goodwill stores in southeastern Wisconsin and metro Chicago areas stopped accepting donations of bulky furniture and exercise equipment as of Monday, company officials said on Monday. the association’s website.

As of December 1, these items will also not be sold at Goodwill stores in those regions, the website said.

Items that are no longer accepted include desks, office furniture, tables, dressers, chairs, stools, sofas, pianos or organs, and bookcases. Stores have also stopped accepting donations of large exercise equipment.

For specific questions about what is accepted, the donation clerks at each store will be able to provide more details.

“It’s hard to say ‘no thanks’ to a donation when those donations help fund goodwill programs. However, we must refuse certain items because they are not recyclable or contain hazardous materials. Other times the item has to be refused because it costs more to transport, repair or refurbish than it can be sold in our stores, ”the website said.
