Don't throw your old television away, donate it to charity

COLUMBUS, GEORGIA (Columbus Ledger-Enquirer) - So, you finally got that large flat screen television you’ve been dreaming about, the one that replaces three pieces of furniture in your den? Great. Think twice, however, before you put the old set out on the lawn for the trash man.

How about finding a place where it can still be used?

Check with a church. The pastor might know a family that would love to have it. Check with television repair businesses that might be able to use parts.

If your old television works, the Salvation Army will be glad to make arrangements to pick it up.

“If it’s usable, we’ll take it,” said Wanda Hutchins, in charge of the organization’s thrift shop on Veterans Parkway.

“We’ll take any kind of television.”

The Valley Rescue Mission on Second Avenue is also looking for sets.

“We don’t take consoles,” said Debi Carmickle, “because nobody really buys them now. We can’t take a flat screen that doesn’t work because we don’t have anybody who can repair one.”

Carmickle, retail manager for Valley Rescue Mission, says the organization does have somebody who can fix older sets.

As with the Salvation Army, Valley Rescue Mission will be glad to come get the set you don’t want.

Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers is also interested in used televisions.

“It has to be a working set,” said Kari Finley, community development manager. “We’ll take any model.”

She said Goodwill might be able to pick up the set but maybe not.

“Our pickups are done on a case-by-case basis,” she said. “We might not be able to come if there is just a TV being donated but if there is something else with it — perhaps a chair, a couch — there’s a good chance we’ll get the donation.”
