There are many places in the Yakima area to donate household items, clothing, and other items you have decide to get rid of. Below are a few resources.
There are four Goodwill locations in the Yakima area. Please click here to find the location closest to you. On their website you will also find guidelines regarding what they do and do not accept.
E-cycle & Textile Recycling
Goodwill provides two different recycling services. E-cycle provides an opportunity to drop off old computers, laptops, TV’s and monitors. I have found they also take surge protection/battery backup devices and cell phones. Textile recycling is for any type of clothing or linens that aren’t reusable. They can be recycled into industrial wiping cloths, sound-proofing and other insulation and more. So along with reusable clothes, gather up your mismatched socks, ripped t-shirts and faded, old sheets and bring them to Goodwill. For more information on these services, click here.
The Salvation Army has two dropbox locations, one in Yakima and the other in Union Gap. For specific details and addresses, click here.
YWCA – Persimmon Boutique
The Persimmon Boutique, located in the Westbrook Mall at 40th and Summitview, is run by the YWCA. It sells sells new & gently used clothing, jewelry, and other accessories. Donations are always accepted in the rear of the store, and when you donate to the boutique you will receive a store discount good for the next time you shop! Also located at Persimmon is Working Women’s Wardrobe, which provides low-income women and teens with free professional clothing for job interview
