Offer: Cardboard for weed control (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) - Is anyone collecting cardboard to use as a non-plastic weed barrier? That plastic cloth breaks down over time and can be such a hassle to remove, not to mention it introduces microplastics to your soil. We have been collecting pizza boxes and other cardboard for use as a weed barrier, but haven’t started our yard project and if someone can use it now I’d rather move what we have along. We’ve saved up quite a lot! Porch pickup anytime north end of Tramway near the ice skating rink, or depending on where you’re located and how well our schedules coordinate I may be able to deliver. I probably won’t drive too far out of my way, but if I’ll be in your area anyways, I could potentially drop it off.

Offer: Singer sewing machine (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Gifted - Singer Electric machine. No operating manual. This machine should go to a home where it will get used.

I have some extra spools of thread- let me know if I can throw in a little bag of thread for you. Pickup north end of Tramway nearish to the ice skating rink. Pickup either Thursday or Friday of this week, or Tuesday or later next week. I can’t coordinate a pickup over the weekend.

Offer: Mesh plastic bags for crafting (North Tramway Blvd) Gifted - I’ve saved many of those mesh plastic bags that produce like mandarin oranges or avocados are sometimes old in. This tissue box is stuffed full of them. I was saving my them to make upcycled dish scrubbers, but it hasn’t happened yet. Does anyone use these for upcycle crafts or other reuse purposes? Porch pickup anytime far north end of Tramway nearish to the ice skating rink, or depending on your location I may be able to drop off if I happen to be headed your way sometime soon.

Offer: Large bag of shirts (North Tramway Blvd) Gifted - Stash of 3-4 dozen shirts from child sizes up to adult 3XL, mostly Ts, some collared. They’re all in either very good used or new condition. Many are branded by a local solar company. These were given to me for a community upcycling project that went belly-up when Covid hit. They could be used for upcycling but would ideally be given to folks who need nice clean clothing. Priority to anyone who can take all, but if that doesn’t work out I’ll give away by desired size/style. Pickup far north end of Tramway, nearish to the ice skating rink.

Offer: Tshirts (North Tramway Blvd) Gifted - Tshirts! And a couple tanks, and a few long sleeves. These are all in at least good condition, or excellent. Some are new. They’re photographed by the sizes marked on the tag. There are some cool designs, if you’re into random t’s. If anyone has a connection to an organization that could directly offer/distribute items to folks who need clothing, that would be awesome to donate them in one shot. I prefer not to donate to a thrift store because these actually all (or at least mostly) came from a thrift store that didn’t expect to be able to sell them and gave them to me for repurposing. This is actually just one bin that I’ve had stored (leftover from a community upcycle project that went belly-up with covid). If you do have a connection to an org that needs clothing for folks and could use t’s like these, and if you want/are willing to take more, I have several more. 💚 I’m located west of Tramway, north of Paseo nearish to the ice skating rink. Contactless porch pickup preferred. I may be able to deliver the whole lot if necessary, depending on location and timing. Sizing: 1st pic- mostly XL, 1-2 XXL 2nd and 3rd pics - L 3rd - S Last- youth size... there’s no tag, maybe M? Update: a size M t was specially requested, and removed from the lot.

Offer: Glass bottles (North Tramway Blvd) Gifted - Is anyone collecting glass wine and/or beer bottles or glass vitamin jars for upcycling?

Offer: toddler books- heavily used (NE ABQ) Gifted - I cleared out some toddler books from my (now 5 year old) kiddo’s bookshelf- these are great for very young book-lookers. They are in VERY LOVED condition. We tried to teach him to be gentle with his books, but his 18 month old self sometimes got a bit over enthusiastic and ended up ripping or scribbling on a page here, a spine there. They’re all still readable and enjoyable for a little one. Maybe they’d be good very first books for a handsy toddler... let these be the ones that get destroyed and save the nice pretty newer books for when they’re a little older and can be more gentle. One pic to convey the extent of damage on the “most loved” ones, and another pic to hopefully show they still have plenty of joy to bring to a future reader. I hope someone can continue to love these🙂 Porch pickup far north end of Tramway nearish to ice skating rink

I have a few boxes of various sizes and colors that we’ve held off from taking to recycling in the hopes we could find a local artist or builder who would use them. I would deliver to Albuquerque or Tijeras. Offer: Brown black-out window panel (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Gifted - The window covering is brown, 54”x84”, and is a blackout curtain I think.

Request: Child craft supplies (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Received - I’m looking for unwanted water colors, paints, crayons, coloring books or any art/craft supplies that are suitable for a 5 year old.

Request: Thread for sewing machine (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Expired - I’m hoping to collect spools of sewing thread that may be sitting unused in storage. These would help me with a major upcycling project I’m launching; I’m trying not to procure any new materials if I can avoid it (to make reusable bags out of 100% recycled or repurposed material). Any color, any size, any fiber- all spools of thread will be put to good immediate use and will be much appreciated. I live up in the NE part of town and am frequently in the Nob Hill area- picking up in those areas will be pretty easy. I would happily travel outside those areas to pickup a large stash of spools, but probably can’t justify a long drive just for one or two spools. Thank you for understanding ☺️ Request: iPhone cable (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Expired - Does anyone have an iPhone lightening cable lying around that you don’t need anymore... maybe if you switched to a different type of cellphone but still have your iPhone accessories in that random box/drawer? Mine is on its last legs and if I can use one that might be landfill bound, I’ll feel better than buying a brand new one. Thanks!

Request: Philips Sonicare Diamond (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Expired - If you have a broken or unused functional Philips Sonicare Diamond or model 6000+ toothbrush laying around, my husband would love to have it for parts to repair his broken toothbrush. Thank you!! Offer: Expired organic blue agave (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Gifted - I found two jugs of organic blue agave syrup... expired 10/31/2017. One is missing a cap (still sealed with the safety seal, though). I wouldn’t offer or recommend these for consumption (and I know agave is bad for hummingbirds so it shouldn’t be used for them!) but maybe someone has another use for the syrup?

Request: Wall calendars & promo posters (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Received - Im looking for old wall calendars, the kind with full-page photos for each month. I’m also collecting old promotional posters - the kind that get hung around town to promote an event, that are made of paper thicker than regular printer paper, but not as thick as cardboard. If you have a stash of either, I’d love to use them for a project. I probably won’t drive far to pickup one poster, but a stack of old posters or a few calendars may justify a further trip. I live in the far NE part of town and come to the Nob/DT area a few days per week. Thanks! Request: Philips Sonicare toothbrush (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Received - If you have a broken or unused functional Philips Sonicare toothbrush laying around, my husband would love to have it for parts to repair his broken toothbrush. Thank you!! Offer: Two bags of nursing supplies (Tramway Blvd/ Paseo) Gifted - Includes quite a few medela storage bottles and tubes, a teether, disposable nursing pads. Porch pickup.
