In the States you can take your boxes of used items to places like Goodwill to donate. Is there a similar places like this here? I have a box of clothes and then another box of odds and ends with some toys etc.

The Sue Ryder Shop on ul. Bagatela (the pl. Unii Lubelskie end) is the nearest thing. They have English language books too.

Donating things to the shop helps support the care home for disabled veterans they run in Piaseczno.

If you're going there and want some English language reading materials, it could be a good idea to wait until after Monday or Tuesday - I'm leaving Poland for a while and closing up my apartment, so I'll be taking a big box of books in early next week.

In Warsaw I have occasionally come across Polish Red Cross containers on street corners where reusable discards can be desposited.

There are quite a few, but usually in the middle of housing estates, so you have to know where to find them. There's a couple near me but they are often stuffed with household waste, broken bottles and worse, so the clothes inside get damaged.

Is there anyplace that takes a donation of used furniture?

See post #2 - they will accept most things within reason, and are very pleasant to deal with.

Sometimes the town council will take used/old furniture. Find out on their websites and arrange delivery. I know that in Krakow they take small electrical items free of charge and will come for them to your address.

Also, if old furniture is put out neatly by the bins, people will collect it very quickly if it's in reasonable condition.
