Bulk Trash – updated


BEFORE YOU SCHEDULE BULK CONSIDER DONATING, PLEASE READ: Hi…this is Betsy and I’ve been getting a lot of calls for perfectly good items that you just don’t want/need anymore. You’re cleaning out a relative’s home, someone gave you a dresser that’s better than the one you have, but the one you have isn’t in bad shape. PLEASE consider calling the Community Action Agency of Delaware County BEFORE you call me. They operate a donations warehouse in Folcroft. They are always in need of furniture and household items in GOOD CONDITION which can then be given to their clients in emergency shelters, or families who are leaving the shelter and setting up a new apartment. They also help victims of domestic abuse, fire and other disasters by partnering with more than 25 local service agencies. The need beds, dressers, tvs, living room furniture, bedroom furniture, tables, chairs….all the stuff that you’re scheduling for bulk!! If you feel that your gently used items can help someone else, please call them at 610-522-9611 and see if they’ll accept/need your GOOD CONDITION items BEFORE you schedule bulk.

PLEASE NOTE: ANY TVs, computers, computer monitors, scanners and printers will no longer be accepted as part of regular or bulk trash. Click here for more information about the DCSWA rules. The Salvation Army will accept working computers, computer monitors, scanners and printers. Best buy is no longer accepting tvs and monitors……at any price. They are still accepting other peripherals.
