    Thanks for letting us know of this location. Very timely as I was needing to donate yesterday. It would be great to have a complete list of Goodwill drop-off locations in WS posted to WSB

    Great idea. Plays into an idea for a page we’re going to be creating within a week or so. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I donated some old clothes and shoes that were still in good condition, but they wouldn’t take some of my other items like this old couch and chair. I checked around online and found this hauling company out in Seattle called Busby Junk Removal. I called them up, they promptly came out the next day and hauled away the left over items that couldn’t be donated. I added a couple extra items and I felt the price was very reasonable and the service was professional.

Sorry, comment time is over.
