Good Samaritan recycles items that are not sellable on the floor like:
Clothing, soft toys, shoes, belts,ball caps,
old tin baking and cooking pans,
suitcases, purses, books and cardboard.
The Store receives between $0.01 and $0.50 a pound on the various items listed above. The clothing is shipped out in 1,000 pound bales. Once and sometimes twice a month we send out a semi-truck trailer loaded with 30,000 pounds or more of recycled material.
Please consider donating your recyclables to Good Samaritan Ministries and Thrift Store.
