COLORADO SPRINGS — A growing problem at Denver area Goodwill drop locations hasn't been a big problem in southern Colorado, yet.

The company said it seems people are using their down time at home to clean out garages and closets and some are dumping their donated goods at non-attended sites, creating health and safety hazards.

Goodwill wants to remind everyone that retail drop sites are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but the drop off procedure has changed slightly.

"Everybody wants to get out and help at this point. We ask that they please stay inside their vehicle. It keeps them from getting any type of contamination," said Store Manager, Randy Lollar.

All donations will go through a three day incubation period before being sorted and processed.
