Do you have any reusable or resellable items too good to be discarded? Why not try one of the charitable organizations (see page 5 of your 2019 Curbside Collection Calendar for a current listing) in our area to see if your trash may be someone else’s treasure. Please keep in mind that the items must be clean, in working condition and actually reusable.
