Donating during spring cleaning season

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - It's finally spring cleaning season.

"I decided this was a good time to weed through and get rid of some of the stuff,” said Boli Soderberg, a St. Vincent de Paul donator.

It's been a long winter and Marquette residents are looking to clean house. Donating to St. Vincent de Paul's Thrift Store is one option.

"Oh well we have to recycle, we have to recycle, and if somebody can use it, that's fine," continued Soderberg.

St. Vincent De Paul is looking for specific items at this time.

"We’re in need of furniture and stuff like that. We do pickups if you have things you want to get rid of and you can’t bring them to the store. We have a truck that can come get them from you," said St. Vincent de Paul pricer, Alice Kurian.

Donation drop offs are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday at St. Vincent de Paul in north Marquette.

For broken or over used items, Marquette's Household Rubbish site is opening for the season next Monday, April 22.

Intended for city residents who pay the "solid waste" fee to dispose of household items too large for curbside pickup.
