This exact same thing happened to me, I didn't know the poor were so ******* picky. I had to put the damn thing in a junkyard because I couldn't get a charity to take it.

I was so confused I thought they meant to say "Still works good, Will refuses to take it etcetc"

The irony is that that is a flat screen TV. It's just not a flat panel TV.

This family of TVs has never once failed me. Everyone should get one as a backup

I called salvation army today because my friend is homeless and needs a bed and they told me i would have to pay $200 for a bed, i have actually worked for them before and used to go on the trucks to pick this stuff up for free, and they where going to charge me $200, they are worse then the cunts from hardcore pawn, ended up spending $50 and got a brand new blow up mattress

My family is struggling to pay the bills, and my step-sister got offered my step-mom's red  Camaro on her 16th birthday and refused it because it bottoms out on our driveway and it would embarrass her.

I've picked up curbside TVs before, they almost always work. Last one I got was thrown out cause he didn't have a remote. It was a 5 year old HD TV. It was a 37 inch ******* flatscreen

I read it as "tv still works good, Will refused to take it because it wasn't a flat screen"

They won't take refrigerators more than 5 years old
Why the **** do they have all these restrictions
It's an old refrigerator but it's still one more refrigerator than they had before

If they need such luxurious items for the "needy," I'd like to apply to become homeless, please

I have that same TV, as well as a piece of tape holding the remote battery case together. I really only use it to play my gamecube...there is an ever so slight but noticeable delay when played on and HD TV.

Canadian Goodwills will take anything, I've seen half a package of adult diapers for sale at one especially sketchy store. I'm assuming this is in America, are Goodwills really that picky?

You'll get a knock on the door from the police with a littering ticket if you drop things off at the trailer door in the back (the drop off point for a lot of the goodwills around here for some reason) if they are not open or you can't wait in a long line while they look through all your **** to see what they want.

I won't donate to a goodwill anymore, I use the DAV (Disabled American Veterans)

I was once offered a television that worked perfectly, but the volume was permanently stuck on the highest setting. How could I turn that down?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is reasonable since tube televisions use up much more energy than flat screens.

The reason the Good Will doesn't take old TV's is because it is too expensive for them to keep them there. Less people are buying TV's and they now cost more to dispose of, so they won't buy them off of people. They aren't going to buy something that they will have to pay to throw away, because no one will buy it.

My mate's making terrariums out of old TVs - thinking of selling them online and hoping hipsters will lap that **** up.

Everyone's chucking them out in Aus as everything's switched to digital.

The best part of those is the solenoid it's made of titanium and is worth roughly 15 bucks each one.

Same thing happened to me. Goodwill, salvation army etc refused to take some leather chairs so I just had to throw them out.
