Your Old Car or Truck has Value!
The City of Greer does not accept vehicles for recycling, but your old car or truck potentially has value to a charitable organization and can save dollars on your next tax bill. Car website Edmunds.com has posted an article on when it may pay to donate your vehicle to charity and how to determine its fair market value.
Which Charities are Legitimate?
There is no shortage of organizations that will accept used cars and trucks as donations. Among the better-known national non-profit organizations that accept used vehicles are Goodwill Industries, Make-A-Wish, Habitat for Humanity, and Kars4Kids. Do your research on any charitable organization before making the commitment and check with the IRS for information on tax deductions.
FAQ: DISCONTINUATION OF CURBSIDE RECYCLING
The City of Greer discontinued curbside recycling services on August 1, 2022. Materials are no longer profitable for the sanitation contractor, and that cost has been absorbed by the City. We understand you may have questions about how the City is moving forward.
