Rummage Sale Drop-Off Guidelines

GHCC RUMMAGE SALE GUIDELINES FOR 2017

Rummage sale donations are accepted on designated drop-off days at the GHCC annex building.  Furniture and other oversize items should be taken to the Norwegian Point Park boathouse on the same drop-off days.  We have limited transport resources but if you are unable to deliver large items, pick-ups may be arranged provided items are on the ground floor of your home.

General Guidelines:

Clothing: Items should be new or only gently used, clean and folded.  We’re can not take undergarments.  Clothing not meeting these conditions can be donated to charity at a drop box at the Hansville Grocery Store or to Goodwill.

Electronics: Computers to be donated must be less than five years old. TVs must be flat screen models.

Appliances: Arrange for major appliances to be inspected by a GHCC representative prior to being brought for drop-off. They must be plugged in and running so that satisfactory operation can be verified. This will prevent a needless trip if it is determined during the inspection the item is not suitable for the Rummage Sale.

Disposal fees (for large appliances): We accept large appliances (refrigerators, freezers, ovens, ranges, cooktops, dishwashers, washers, dryers, etc.) only if accompanied with a non-refundable fee of $20.00 to cover the cost of disposal if the item does not sell at the Rummage Sale. Please note that this is the same fee you will pay if you take the item directly to the county disposal centers.

  • Large Desks, Entertainment Centers for NON-Flat Screen TVs
