Kerbside collection

I love kerbside collection weekend! The two main reasons why I think it’s so fantastic are:

  1. You have a deadline to clear unnecessary things out from your house.
  2. Most things get picked up by other people before the rubbish collection people come along.

We’re moving house in a little while and want to minimise what we take (or put into storage). So we had a few things to put out including: a desk, inline skates, exercise weights, an easel, and some motorcycle helmets.

Most items were collected by people passing by (possibly trawling the neighbourhood) within a few hours. It’s great to know that they will be put to (re)use. 😀

We’re also gone through most of our things and we will be donating a few more items, and possibly putting some up for sale online (a couple of bikes, a Commodore 64, a bunch of DVDs and games).

It all feels very… refreshing. 🙂

  1. Reminds me of the time we cleared out CSSE. We filled the bin up, lamented we’d have to order another bin to fill, then we find the next day it was 3/4 empty again from people finding stuff overnight. Did this for a few days until it was actually full of rubbish.
