“Dear PoPville,

I recently downsized and have an extra queen size mattress, box spring and bed frame in storage. I see people complaining on the 311 app all the time about mattresses just being dumped in alleys and on street corners but wanted to see if there was a better way to dispose of them. Ideally, I want to donate everything and have an organization pick it up before I resort to the old standbys like Craigslist. Would love to hear what other PoPville readers have done!”


Where can I donate a very large collection of books? Most all in very good condition, subjects from how-to, history, travel, science, nature, etc. I would like to find a place to take the whole collection if possible”
