Request: Scruffy Area Rug(s) Ypsi/A2 (Ypsilanti) 27d - I am moving to a house with a carpeted basement. I’d to designate some spots for storage and protect the carpet there, so I would be glad of some area rugs. One larger, 3x5 or 4x6, and one or two smaller ones. Totally fine if they are stained, threadbare or faded. A little mustiness is fine too. They can’t have been peed on, or my cats will want to pee on them too. Thanks so much ! & Happy Trashing Nothing. Abby Offer: Spotted: 60s Salon Chair (Pearl & Summit, Ypsi) 34d - What can I say? It speaks for itself and then there is the note. Trash pick up is Tuesday in this neighborhood, so come fast if you want it. It’s on the north side of Pearl between Summit and Ballard. The white plastic case on the seat contains a mini, battery-powered Singer sewing machine. Thanks for looking. I am also rooting for it to get a good home.
Offer: Practically New Recliner (SE Ann Arbor) Gifted 54d - 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

Abby Offer: Firewood SE A2 (SE A2) Expired 138d - Gyms are closed, bars are closed. Get your exercise and entertainment the old-fashioned way and split some wood.

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 353d - Students throw away a lot of waste baskets and trash cans. I have been gathering them for several years & have at least 30.

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.
