There is so much trash in the world. I see it on the side of the road, on the beach, in parking lots, on sidewalks – it’s unfortunately, everywhere. Though some of the ‘trash’ I see at my local transfer station is not really trash at all, well, at least not in my eyes...
It’s actually perfectly good stuff no longer wanted or needed by its previous owner. And our wise town transfer station has created an area specifically for these hand-me-downs…everyone wins. The town saves money, the earth is spared (at least a little) and goods are recycled, upcycled and simple re-used by another.
Here are just a few of the fun things I’ve come across this summer…my house is filled with free stuff. It’s actually quite amazing what people throw out…
So before you get rid of something, think of donating or giving it away. You just never know, your trash could very well become someone’s treasure.
Wow, great treasures, especially those alarm clocks!
Thanks! I saw both alarm clocks in stores and each were over $25, new…amazing, really.
Great stuff! Love the candle holders.
Thanks Mim! Even the place mat under the candle holders I found at the freebie barn too! Have a great week. (:
Great finds, wonder why people don’t donate perfectly usable items.
These are wonderful. The transfer station is one of my favourite places to shop! 😀
