Are there charities in Portland, OR that will come pick stuff up?

I have a couple heavy (300-ish pounds) items (an old TV and various accessories) that I want to give to a charity, and I have no easy way to get them out of my house. Are there charities in the Portland metro area that will come get things?

Yes, the Arc of Portland is the one we always used.

Not a charity, but FreeCycle has a Portland group -- advertise your items for free, and grateful locals will take them off your hands.

We've used both The Arc and Volunteers of America in the past.

Goodwill and the Salvation Army will make pickups, but they're not in the garbage removal business; they only want things they can resell.

Check with your local chapter of Disabled American Veterans.
