Stuff We’ve Picked Up

The goal of Owen’s List is to show people a better destination than a landfill for stuff they no longer need. Some drop offs are alternate recycling facilities. Others are hazardous waste disposal sites. A third category is community organizations that can use your stuff for good. Here is a list of some of the items we have found ways to dispose of that you probably have at home too.
