Got good stuff you don't need anymore?

Reusing is better than recycling - one person’s trash is another person’s treasure! Reusing not only keeps still-useful items out of the landfill, but also:

  • Saves you money
  • Saves the energy and resources needed to make new items, including the packaging
  • Prevents additional pollution that would have been generated
  • Reduces greenhouse gases
  • Good-condition items are re-homed and re-purposed for years to come

Tag ‘n’ Take is an ongoing initiative to help connect unwanted (yet useful) items with new owners. Tag items that are in good condition and put them at your curb after dawn. Remove all leftover items the following day before dusk.

You may also make your own sign that says, "Free."
