Request: Home Toxics for Disposal (SE A2) - This is a bit like offering a service, so I hope it is ok. I am going to the Zeeb Rd Toxic Center this Sat (10/3) and since it’s a long trip for me I would gladly take some other people’s stuff too. For full info, check out Washtenaw.org/hometoxics. They take almost every chemical you would use for your house, car, garden, hobby. Also fluorescent tubes up to 4 ft. They prefer things in original containers or labeled and under 5 gallon sizes. I don’t want to do too much extra driving to pick stuff up, but can definitely do some. I work in Southeast Ann Arbor and live in Ypsi. I can go through the west side of Ann Arbor to get there on Sat morning. Let me know where you are and when is convenient for me to pick stuff up and I will try to accommodate.

Bottom 2 drawers hold hanging files. Large & heavy. 60” by 30” top by 29” high. It will take at least 2 strong people, not counting me, to move it. Am in Glencoe Hills by Hogback & Washtenaw.

Offer: Practically New Recliner (SE Ann Arbor) Gifted - I’m in Glencoe Hills by Hogback and Washtenaw. Practically new chocolate brown recliner. My neighbor bought this new and said he’s sat in it about 5 times. He thinks the back has more bounce in it than it should. It felt ok to me. It definitely is safe, not going to tip you over backwards. Maybe something is loose, maybe a springier suspension than he likes. He put it in the laundry room of our building, where someone else may take it or maintenance might throw it out, so the sooner you can pick it up the better. I am around tomorrow (Wed) late afternoon and evening till 9:30 pm. Thanks and happy e-cycling. Abby

Give away of found waste baskets and trash cans and more, items mostly dumpster dove. Students throw away waste baskets & trash cans when they move and I have been collecting them for several years.

There will be an interfaith blessing from 7-7:15 to rid them of any bad vibes that come from holding other people’s garbage. Other items include: -plastic coat hangers, which students throw out in large numbers as well -School/office supplies, some nicer, some scruffier, including some of my late father’s impressive hoard of lined paper -packed, mostly instant, Chinese & Korean food (international student move-out) -plastic storage bins, mostly without lids -freezer gel packs galore (the semi-reusable ones that come with shipped food & meds) -glass jars & probably more Hope to see you there & happy e-cycling.

Offer: Waste Basket Free4All Mon 8/26 (SE A2) Expired - Students throw away a lot of waste baskets and trash cans. I have been gathering them for several years & have at least 30. My plan is to try and give them out on campus in a funny costume with a little note about reducing and reusing. But first I am offering them on e-cycle. Monday August 26 from 6-8 pm I’ll have the whole collection outside between my apartment, 2105 Glencoe Hills Dr and Clark Rd. Come by and take one or more. They have all been washed and bleached. Open, swing tops, flip tops, foot pedal tops, mesh, kitchen, bathroom, office. I’ll post an update with a picture of all of them. Also bunches of plastic coat hangers, something students throw away in huge numbers as well. There will be a little interfaith blessing of waste baskets between 7 & 7:15 pm to rid them of any bad vibes. (In keeping with the pagan tradition of not taking an old broom to a new house.) Everyone is welcome to that. After 7:15, all waste baskets will have been blessed. If that is too hippie dippy for you and you’d prefer an un-blessed waste basket, come before 7 pm. If I am organized, there will be snacks. Thanks for reading and happy e-cycling. Abby Offer: Guitar Case & As-in Violin (SE A2) Gifted - UPDATED 08/15: Taken: Guitar Case These were both trash finds. I am in Glencoe Hill apartments by Hogback and Washtenaw. I can’t do porch pick up, sorry. My schedule is a little odd, but I have some availability every day for the next week except Thursday (8/15), so let me know what’s good for you. Mendini violin in case with bow. One of the tuning pegs is missing and it has no strings. The nice man at Oz Music found it online for $30 new. Case in good condition except zipper on one outside pocket is broken. This wooden thing was in the case. Maybe it has something to do with re-stringing??? Soft padded guitar case. I think it is standard length (41”). Double straps like backpack and one side carrying handle. Includes unopened Fender phosphor bronze string pack for acoustic guitars, one unopened Fender professional clip-on tuner and one mystery black strap, maybe for guitar. Thanks for looking and happy e-cycling! Abby
