Downsizing Tip #3: Don’t put useful items that have little value in a dumpster
Many tend to see a lot of used goods as simply waste, but it is a shame to see useful
goods going to a landfill.
It’s sometimes hard to see who would want a worn or tired item, so many sellers assume their only option is to throw it away. But keep in mid what is garbage to some, is a treasure to others! For items that are still usable, they can be repaired or used for parts, there is often a buyer. You can be green, and often recover some money at the same time, by finding a way to sell those items.
Solution: Use the power of the Internet to expose your unwanted items to a much wider audience than traditional alternatives. Sushee Perumal of You Bid Local (an online auction service) noted that these auctions consistently find new homes for goods that would have otherwise been thrown out. This means the seller and buyers can reduce their carbon footprint, take pressure off landfills, and reuse the goods without impeding the sale of the house.
