I have all sorts of stuff, and just want someone to take it away...

Craigslist listing items for free is an easy and free way to pass along unwanted items. You can also sell items.

 

Freecycle also hosts local online swaps. Half of our SSRC towns have groups.

"Buy Nothing" groups promote hyper-local giving and receiving for all manner of materials.  As of June 2017, Plymouth is the only SSRC town that has one.

 

For general cleanouts, these companies handle many of the listed items and more, and recycle/reuse to the max:
