Eco-Minded Trash Pickup System

With the right vehicle and a little dedication, you can develop a trash pickup system and prevent a number of useful items from ending up in the landfill.

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.
