Much of what we no longer want is still useable. Think paint, for example. Don't dump paint - try Re-Utilise Paint. Old tools?Old Laptop? try Twam - there's a collector in Lowestoft. Or what about phones - here's an article with loads of ideas   

10 MILLION HOUSEHOLD ITEMS ARE SENT TO LANDFILL EVERY YEAR - try Reuse Network to donate furniture.

Or what about Charity Shops? They do an amazing job in re-distributing unwanted items, and contribute mightily to keeping stuff out of the incinerator or landfill. They are especially good for low value goods. Other material can be sold on the multiplicity of sales sites online. Men's Sheds and Repair Shops are often looking for repairable items.

Every time something is re-used it helps. And it makes sense to squeeze every last bit of use from what we own or what we have.
