Are you buying a new winter jacket? Do you have holiday lights that no longer work? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?
If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in Dearborn.
Toys, Clothes and Other Goods
Goodwill's Dearborn store is accepting donations of toys, clothes and household goods daily. Just drive up to the east side of the store and an employee will help you unload your donation. The store, located at 22451 Michigan Ave., is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 12-5 p.m.
Be sure to get a receipt for your donation!
If you have coats you no longer need, donations are being collected through Steven Bernard Jewelers' Coupons for Coats drive through Dec. 31. In exchange, you'll get a 20 percent discount coupon for use in the store, which is located at 22266 Michigan Ave. Learn more here.
Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? Drop off used cells at Henry Ford Community College, which is an authorized CellPhoneBank.org drop-off site. The college is located at 5101 Evergreen Road.
Have old holiday lights that no longer work? Maybe you switched colors or swapped old lights for LED ones? Whatever the reason, if you have lights that you're not hanging this year, they can be recycled through HolidayLEDs.com. Just mail them to:
Attn: Recycling Program
3849 Guest Rd.
Jackson, MI 49203
Or drop them off to the Ann Arbor Whole Foods Market, located at 3135 Washtenaw Ave.
