Goodwill Urges Customers To Please Stop Donating Trash

Goodwill has a message for everyone out there doing some spring cleaning – please stop donating your trash.
While the thrift chain depends on donated items from customers, some have been sticking them with straight-up trash like broken furniture or toys with leaking batteries. And Goodwill gets stuck with the extra cost of getting rid of them.
One spokesman said the company is getting “all sorts of donations with people cleaning out their house” but wants people to know that “we can’t rpair items”.
