Your "trash" may be another person's treasure
Where to bring used items in good condition
Before you throw anything away, ask yourself these questions:
     1. Is it something someone else might be able to use?
     2. Is it clean and in good condition?
     3. If it's electric or motorized, does it run or require a simple repair? (Habitat for Humanity will accept vehicles running or not.)  

If you answered yes to these questions, consider giving your items to a re-use program rather than throwing them away. It will save you disposal fees, help a local non-profit or small business and help extend the life of the landfill.

These non-profits/businesses accept the items indicated (clean and in good condition):
