I've done it once. I had a couch and a headboard to donate and they offered to come out with their truck and get it, since I had no way to transport it to them (small car). If you have more than a trunkload of items, I would say definitely do it. If it's just a couple bags, though, it wouldn't be something I would personally do because I would be afraid that the gas and time expense to them to bring a huge truck all the way out would completely negate the profit they would make off my items.
The Disabled American Veterans group in my area has a monthly pickup route that they run. They call me a week beforehand to see if I have anything and I don't feel bad about putting out just a box or two for that since they are already using the gas. Maybe the DAV in your area has something similar?
