Post on Buy Nothing or Free on the Rock or Freecycle.
Goodwill – A Goodwill donation truck is located in the Bainbridge Island Ace Hardware parking lot, 635 NE High School Rd. Drop off only when they are open, which is almost 365 days a year. Hours are, 8:30am-5pm, but it is not uncommon for them to close up early due to a full truck. Do not leave items next to the truck.
Check here for Goodwill’s donation guidelines. Items should be in usable condition and keep in mind, the Bainbridge truck takes items no larger than an end table. (The Silverdale and Bremerton locations can take bigger items.)
