Many of us have a perfectly good dresser, chair, or bookcase sitting in the garage. We would take it to Goodwill or ARC – if only we could borrow a truck. Or we’d leave it out on the curb for City collection, but hate to think that it would be landfilled or burned. If only we could easily get our unwanted items into the hands of someone for whom it will be a real treasure.
That’s where ReUse RoundUp comes in. On Friday evening October 25th (or before 8am on Saturday the 26th) Linden Hills and Fulton neighbors are encouraged to set usable, unwanted, large items on the curb. We ask participants to RSVP here by October 20 with a brief description of what you plan on leaving on your block. This makes it easier for neighbors to find useful items to pick up and we will be able to track the amount of waste diverted from trash. Last year we cleared over 4 tons of stuff from basements and garages!
On October 26th, neighbors can browse a giant, free curbside sale. Anything that hasn’t been picked up for reuse by neighbors should be placed in your recycling or trash cart, or labeled “Solid Waste” for City collection.
