Memphis Curb Day


On May 15, 2010 Memphians are encouraged to unclutter their homes by
bringing to the curbs durable goods that are safe, legal, and valuable
to others. At the same time, people will be driving, riding, or walking
around picking up those items to reuse. It will supplement resources
like ReUseIt, Craig's List, eBay, and second-hand stores.

Reusing items not only cuts down on goods in landfills, but also helps
reduce the strain on our natural resources by keeping useable items in
circulation. Curb Day will reduce the human footprint on the Earth by
promoting conservation, good stewardship, and providing an opportunity
for individuals in Memphis and surrounding communities to take action.

Items don't have to be in pristine condition, and in some cases can be
non-working. People tinker with the odd appliance, refinish furniture,
or need a part to make something work and these can be located during
Curb Day. It also provides the opportunity for metal scrappers to
place items back into the recycle process.
