Don’t Toss It!

When cleaning out closets, attics, and basements, consider giving your items to these organizations as an alternative to the town dump.


■ Clothing and Furniture
Salvation Army and Goodwill accept your new or gently used items—clothing, appliances, and furniture—and sell them in their retail stores. Furniture Sharehouse will pick your furniture up, then redistribute to clients referred by area social-service organizations.
