  1. This is great, there is also a website called freecycle that people will come to you to pick up items that they need.
    Maybe those big pieces of furniture, I have given beds, dressers, bookcases, books, etc.….
    I have given a lot of things to people who could really use them instead of giving it to the landfill.

  2. This is great!!!!
    It is always so upsetting to see so many items that are in really good condition being thrown away because people are moving and can’t take them with them.
    I highly encourage people to put listings on Craigs list for large furniture items for low or no cost. It is good karma. I have both purchased from Craigs list and given away through it. Both feel really good.
    Also, I’m not sure what Salvation Army’s policy is these days about large furniture, but it would be great if someone might find out since futons unfortunately are a major casualty of dorm moves.
    Thanks for creating this effort!

  3. Cool idea! It seems to me that the opening of such hotels will give an impetus to many people for a more correct disposal of waste, and this, in my opinion, is very promising. Recycling, reduce and reuse is a very important issue today and to be honest, I live in London and use the services of a waste collection and disposal company too.
