Dumping things on ‘do not donate’ list hurt charities trying to help people

DENVER -- Donating things you no longer need is a great way to help people.

But right now, some neighbors are complaining about people just using charities as a dumping ground. It hampers the effort to help those in need.

Dumping TVs, mattresses and other items that are on the 'do not donate' list hurts a charity organization's ability to truly serve those in need.

Dropping off dirty mattresses also poses a health risk to the community.
