We are in the process of cleaning out a deceased relative's house and have furniture, household goods, tools, small appliances, etc. We even have 59 boxes of expensive floor tile that were never used.

We have everything in the garage - all we need is someone to come pick it up.

I've called one charity and they wanted to know specifically what we had. Another wants a list of all items. While much of it is everyday household items, it isn't junk - I've already recycled what I could and taken the rest to the dump.

Does anyone know of a charity that is willing to come to North Wilmington pick this up without a big hassle?

Have you tried Purple Heart or the Salvation Army? Purple Heart states on their info that they pick up kitchenware such as dishes and small appliances, lamps, rugs, toys, sports equipment; they don't pick up large appliances or large furniture and carpet, nor do they pick up computer monitors.

I think the perfect place for the floor tile would be one of Habitat for Humanity's ReStores. Proceeds from sales benefit Habitat for Humanity's building operations.

I checked out their website, and it looks like there's a store Wilmington:

The cancer society comes and picks up everything as long as it is in a box.
