Items can be refused for some very good reasons: Some items are not recyclable or contain hazardous waste. Some do not meet standards issued by the U.S. Consumer Products SafetyCommission. Others cost more to transport, repair or refurbish than they can be sold for in our store. Our donation attendants may decline a donation if, in their judgment, it is not in clean, or in a saleable condition.

When you are going through your donations, please keep in mind that we can’t accept anything broken or in poor condition. Buckhead THRIFTique does not have a repair facility so please recycle anything that you know we can’t sell. When planning to donate, stop to think – if you would give that item to a family member or friend. Items that don’t meet the current safety standards of the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, including recalled items.

Exceptions! Of course, there are exceptions to these guidelines. Brand new items still in packaging will most likely be accepted. All final decisions are at the discretion of Buckhead THRIFTique.
