“Dear PoPville,

I am moving in a few weeks and have some furniture that I need to get rid of. While some of it will sell on Craigslist, I am wondering what to do with whatever does not sell. I have looked into the Department of Public Works’ Bulk Trash Collection, and they only pick up at single family homes or apartment buildings with three or less units, so I am out of luck there. I have also looked into donating certain items to the Salvation Army, but they are very picky – rightfully so – about the condition of certain items and some of my stuff won’t make the cut. Any tips?”
