*Due to new regulations concerning furniture safety and bed bugs, we reserve the right to use discretion when accepting donated furniture. Upholstered furniture can both carry and attract unwanted pests. If we decline your donation, it is not necessarily because we think your item is infested with bed bugs. Furniture treatment is expensive, and we are attempting to reduce any possible future costs. Thank you for your understanding.
