Stuff to get rid of?
While it might be tempting to place that velour loveseat at the side of the curb with a “free” sign and hope it disappears, the sight of these castaways lingering at curb’s edge is not always so appealing to neighbors—not to mention that the outdoor elements may quickly transform these reusable items into garbage, useless to anyone.
Instead, consider listing your reusable items with the Twin Cities Free Market, located online at www.twincitiesfreemarket.org. Funding for the service is provided by the city of St. Paul and several metro-area counties, including Hennepin County.
For more information about businesses that trade, repair, buy, resell or accept donations of unwanted clothing and household goods, visit Hennepin County’s Choose to Reuse Directory.
