What To Do With Your Stuff After Spring Cleaning
Temperatures are warming up so it's time for the annual tradition of freshening up our homes and cleaning out our garages. Here are some places to donate your unwanted items or make some extra money selling the stuff you don't need.
Books, Vinyl Records, CD's and DVD's
Central Christian Church collects items year round for their Spring Book Sale. They accept books, vinyl records, CD's, DVD's and jigsaw puzzles and will pick up donations. Call 406-252-1828 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends of Billings Public Library also accepts used books, DVD's, CD's and audio books. Items are sold at community book sales and used to re-invest in library assets and literacy efforts around Billings. Donations are tax-deductible and can be dropped off at the Friends’ workroom next to the Sweet Café Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. For large donations call 406-237-6170 to arrange pickup or delivery. According to the Friends of Billings Library website, these items will NOT be accepted:
- Outdated non-fiction (before 2010)
- VHS tapes or audio cassettes
- Material in poor condition—books that are musty, moldy, yellowed, water damaged, torn, or with excessive writing
Indoor / Outdoor Furniture, Appliances, Building Materials and Hardware
Habitat For Humanity is accepting items to restock their new location of ReStore after a fire destroyed 95 percent of their inventory last year.
