The following businesses are partnering with Goodwill Industries of the Columbia to gather unwanted items to be donated. The donations received will be sold in Goodwill retail stores or recycled; donating unwanted items instead of throwing them away keeps them out of landfills and helps our environment.
City of Richland and Clayton Ward Recycling Center
In partnership with the City of Richland and Clayton Ward, Goodwill offers the Curbside Recycling Program, enabling Richland residents to donate items to Goodwill using their existing Richland recycling bin.
Every Richland resident who participates in the recycling program will receive an orange Goodwill recycling bag to fill with unwanted textile items. These include clothing, books, shoes, belts, and purses – even in poor condition. Residents will place the orange donation bag inside of the recycle container (Please use orange Goodwill bag only). All other donations can still be dropped off at any Goodwill store or donation center.
For every donation, a receipt and a new orange donation bag will be mailed back to the resident to use again. This process is accomplished by using an information card placed inside the orange recycling bag.
