We appreciate your generosity and suggested donation. There are several items we will not accept due to their lack of salability. These factors include the cleanliness and condition of Items. We do not accept anything with obvious rips, tears or stains as we need to consider sanitary standards. Also we need to discern weight restrictions, availability of storage space, as well as current trends. All of which equal little or no demand of certain items in our current market place. Our staff and volunteers are mindful of environmental issues and work hard to avoid adding more unnecessary waste to our landfills.
Furthermore, these standard practices help us to reduce our costs so that we may have a greater financial impact on the work of MCC. Our drivers are qualified to use their discretion when picking up items and adhere to these guidelines. We appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.
