|Donation sites vary by community in Maine. Many towns have a Goodwill pickup site, as well as Salvation Army. You can often find donation bins at your local landfill or recycling center. Sometimes community organizations will actually come to your home to pick up items.
Don’t forget local community centers and churches, as well as area non-profit groups. Organizations often will collect and distribute gently-used items to families in need or struck by disaster. Many towns also have “dump stores” at their landfill centers that collect items that are still good, but no longer wanted.
When you give items to registered non-profits, be sure to ask for a tax receipt for charitable deductions.
