At Load of Rubbish, we collect hundreds of items every week. We donate as many things as we can to thrift stores, but sometimes issues arise that prevent us from being able to keep items in circulation. Whether it is the presence of pests, like bedbugs or mice, the lack of cleanliness, or the improper storage of an item, some things no longer retain their original value and get resigned to waste. And that is counter to the Load of Rubbish mandate. We want to salvage as many items as we can to prevent our landfills from overflowing.
How can you help? By making sure the quality of the items you get rid of are as good as possible. That means looking at how well you take care of your possessions in the first place and getting rid of deterrents to donating.
