Eco Minded Trash Pickup

To help cut back on waste, you can transfer curbside trash to local thrift stores.

My partner and I are committed to keeping as many items as possible out of the landfill. We often drive through a neighborhood the day before trash pickup to fill the bed of our truck with other people’s “trash.” What we cannot use ourselves we give away via Craigslist.

We also donate many items to local thrift stores. I guess you could say we work on reducing other people’s environmental footprints.
