If you’re the kind of person that likes to make sure their old items don’t end up in a landfill somewhere, you’re probably already pretty good about donating things that are still useful. Clothes and furniture come to mind quickly, but there are a lot of things that people throw away without even considering that someone else could use them. Your used bedsheet is one of those things. Here, we’ll examine how to donate your old but useable bedding.
Decide If It’s Worth Donating
The first thing you will want to do is decide whether the bedding is in good enough shape for you to donate it. If you want your bedding put to good use, it needs to be in serviceable condition, at least. Make sure there are no large holes or tears and that it’s not beginning to fray before you send it in for a donation.
Wash and Fold
To make it easier on you and the donation center, you’re definitely going to want to wash the bedding thoroughly and make sure there are no visible stains anywhere on it. Make sure to fold it nicely as well, and you should have a much easier time dropping it off or having it picked up.
Consider When You Donate
Bedding is often in high demand during the colder months of the year. People with low income or who are homeless need a warm bed just the same as anyone else. By donating your bedding when it starts to get colder out, you ensure that someone is getting the most out of it.
Pickup or Drop Off
GreenDrop wants to help you make a difference with your used items, and we have multiple ways to do it. Bring your bedding to one of our convenient drop-off locations, or schedule a home pickup donation so that you never even have to leave your house.
Donating anything—clothes, bedding, furniture, or home goods—is always a kind thing to do. GreenDrop wants to make it as easy as possible for you and take any hassle out of the process. Now that you know how to donate your old bedding, consider it as one more way that you can give back to a community that you care about.
