Goodwill of the Finger Lakes wants it. In honor of Earth Week, it launched the Million Pound Challenge. It is an attempt to keep useful items out of landfills.

The Goodwill said last year people dropped off $7 million pounds of clothing, household items and electronics. Officials say those donations helped keep the air cleaner and groundwater safer.

This year, the Goodwill is expanding the kinds of items it will accept by partnering with Sun King, which recycles electronics.
