Time to clean out your closet! Donating your unwanted household items is now easier and more convenient with Goodwill Industries of New Mexico’s new home donation pick-up program. If you don’t have a truck or can’t transport heavy furniture, it’s no problem. Goodwill will come to you.
Pickups occur between 8 AM and 3 PM Monday through Friday, and you do not need to be home for Goodwill to collect your donations. There is a minimum of three boxes, bags, or furniture items to qualify for pick-up services, but feel free to donate more than that. Just label your items for “Goodwill pick-up” and make sure they are left outside on the ground level – unfortunately Goodwill is unable to go into your home to gather any donations. Also, make sure your donations are properly covered or packaged to avoid any damage – especially if it rains. A receipt for your tax deductible donation will be left at your front door. At this time, Goodwill is unable to pick up donations in all areas of Albuquerque and New Mexico, but the nonprofit organization hopes to expand the donation pickups in the future.
You can schedule your pick-up online using the new online donation pick-up appointment scheduling system. Just type in your zip code and specify your type of pick-up (residential, business, or vehicle) to get started.
If you can’t seem to find the time to load up and drive to one of our donation centers, your solution is here! Keep Goodwill Industries of New Mexico in mind as you purge your home of all your unwanted clothes, furniture, housewares, and more.
