Give Your Old Stuff a New Home

If you really want your old "trash" to be reused, but can't think of a use for it yourself, sell it, or give it away.

A Note On Electronics Reuse

While the reuse of many electronics (like donating old computers to schools, cell phones to domestic abuse victims) is a very good thing, there are some devices that would be better off recycled. Instead of donating your old inefficient fridge or washer, or keeping it in the garage for extra use (which just doubles energy use), you should give these energy gobblers to an electronics recycler so that it can be taken apart, and re-manufactured into something more efficient.
