    If you put stuff outside generally members of the public will pick it up wayyy quicker than council though! we always used to do this with spare furniture when we move house, and within 5 mins everything will be gone! it can be much more efficient than council, freecycle gumtree and whatever else :p obviously as long as its not just rubbish you put out but useable things

    I got a kids ride in car from outside someone's house too, got a lot of use out of it so far my eldest loved it at the time now my middle one loves it masha Allah, so nice to have for free :p

      Blechhhh, scourge of the furniture world that stuff is! It's hard to find a decent piece of furniture that isn't laminate or pine

      Anywhoo kudos on the recyclery

                    im my home town we could take useful things to the townhall once a month anything from furniture, lawn-mowers, car engine parts, kids toys, bikes, all sorts and anyone can come and pick up what they want and take it for free. also had an recycle page in the newspaper where u can advertise ur stuff for free and people who need what u are throwing away can call and come and take it for free.

                    when the gov was pulling down a local block of flats, they had the builders had taken out all the taps, copper pipes, baths, furniture that was in there, curtain poles and all sorts and was a big sign up saying help yourself. much better idea than bulldozing the lot and dumping everything.
                    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

                    The Prophet :saw: said:

                    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

                    muslim

                    Narrated 'Abdullah:

                    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


                    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

                    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

                    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]

                        Such things are hard to come by. I remember last year I needed some timber, so popped into a local flooring store and asked if they had anything knocking about. Turns out they just finished a new shop fit and had loads round back. So I just picked up what I needed. It's definitely worth asking around in local shops. You never know what they don't want.
