GreenDrop® has a long history of collecting donations of all different kinds. While the vast majority of what we get is useful and allows us to generate funds for the nonprofit organizations we support, every so often, we receive donations from someone who perhaps doesn’t know how our process works and what we need to keep our organization strong. That’s why we’ve created this guide on everything you need to know about what can be donated. You can use this article to make sure that your donation items will match the right criteria and go on to be useful somewhere else.
