Here's the scoop regarding my local Goodwill.
They push heavily around here for donations.
They advertise over the speakers while you are in the store how they keep tons of items from going to the landfills.
They are constantly overstocked with donations.
So...they throw the donations away.
In an unlocked, wide-open dumpster.
In an alley with public access.
But they don't allow anyone to get the donations out and take them away.
They won't even sell them for less then ticked value before throwing them in the dumpster.
And they have asked the police to issue citations to anyone taking stuff from the dumpster.
Don't ask me how I know.
Now, doesn't all of that make ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE to anyone else?
Before getting busted by the friendly local cop, here were my dumpster finds.
An entire stack of gaming magazines.
A really nice, green and yellow beanbag that I gave away on CL.
Tons and tons of glassware.
Nordicware plates, more glassware and a dishpan.
More glassware and two boxes of disposable gloves.
I found the whole gloves thing kind of ironic.
Because I wear them when dealing with dumpster stuff.
An Aladdin movie, brand new bat/ball decor for someone named Zack, wicker baskets, beautiful red platter, candle holder and more glassware.
Have I mentioned that there was glassware?
A container of white craft paint.
