I can understand how it happens. People have to move in a hurry and they get evicted. They don’t have any way to move their stuff. Most of their belongings end up in a dumpster. Sometimes items that are usable or even new and still in the original box end up in landfills.
Towards the beginning of every month, I see dumpsters filled with furniture and household items.
It costs money to move. Stuff costs money. Having space for stuff costs money. I have occasionally pulled furniture from the alley and donated it to the local thrift shop which is run by a church.
There has to be a better way. A more environmentally friendly way and a way to get these household items back to their owners or get them in the hands of someone who can use them.
