No need for you to do anything except schedule a pick up. Vietnam Veterans of America will pick up used clothing and small household items at no cost to you. You don't even have to answer the door if you don't want to. With a specific appointment they will pick up curbside and hang an IRS donation form on your doorknob.

VVA does not own retail outlets that sell the donations, instead it has chosen to sell the donations through a bidding process to other qualified retailers. The money they collect is used to the benefit of veterans of all ages around the nation.

Contact them here or Google for a local phone number in your area:
Welcome to ClothingDonations.org! | ClothingDonations.org

In many areas the Salvation Army and the St. Vincent de Paul Society also collect donations.

My stuff goes to the first organization that sends me a flyer about local pickup. I've used the bins too. What does it matter when the goal me getting stuff out of my house? I'm not going to micromanage what happens to a tshirt I don't want.

Yep... no need to play matchmaker for things you no longer want. Just get them out of your house!
