Acceptable Donations

Donation Drive ThruWhen you donate to Goodwill, you create jobs for people who might not otherwise be able to find work.

Donating to Goodwill is free and easy. Bring your items to any of our convenient locations during regular business hours. Oh, and did we mention donations are tax deductible?

Goodwill accepts the following items:

  • Accessories: Shoes, belts, scarves, jewelry
  • Antiques and collectibles: Specialty items can be offered through our online auction site, Shopgoodwill.com.
  • Clothing: All sizes, styles, and conditions. Clothing not suitable for resale can be recycled.
  • Computers: Bring computers and computer-related peripherals to any Goodwill store or donation bin. Newer computers and laptops that are in good working order may be re-sold in our Iowa City store. Click here for more information about computer donations. Non-working computers and monitors will be accepted and recycled. There is no fee to drop off those items at Goodwill.
  • Housewares: Dishes and glassware, radios, fans, lamps, furniture: in good condition and without heavy stains. Please see the list of furniture and household items we WILL NOT accept below.

Many local landfills have recycling programs for household hazardous waste. Police departments can provide information on safe disposal of weapons and ammunition. Habitat for Humanity re-sale stores may accept your building materials and plumbing fixtures.
