Whatcha gonna do wit all that junk?

Got junk? Don’t know what to do with it? If you live in San Francisco, people will just throw it on the curb with a sign that says “free” and know that someone will take it. But here in the East Bay, we have some other options for you.

WOMEN’S DAY TIME DROP IN CENTER

WDDC is located in Berkeley and is a drop in center for homeless women and children. They are looking for slightly used living room furniture, pots and pans, and they can always use women’s toiletries, diapers and formula. New clothes gladly accepted. http://www.womensdropin.org/

1-800-GOT-JUNK

They will take away almost anything – from old furniture and appliances to yard waste and renovation debris – including many things that your local garbage company won’t typically accept. www.1800gotjunk.com

STOPWASTE.ORG

Got e-waste, such as computers, tv’s, printers or cell phones? Got medicine or thermometers? Go to www.stopwaste.org to find the next e-waste drop off event. Click here for a catchy tune by Jack Johnson on the 3-R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle.
