Listing of Household Goods We Are Unable to Accept

We provide outside pick-ups only (e.g., curbside, driveway, open garage with someone home). We do not come inside homes. We do not go to the second floors. All items need to be on the 1st floor. Small items must be boxed or bagged.

Please review this list of household goods that St. Vincent de Paul is unable to accept. Trust us, you don’t want to schedule our truck only to leave your household donations outside. It is the driver's discretion to leave items behind. Call us with questions: (602) 254-3338.
