Make the free stuff Xchange on 4th and McDonald official.
It's a great corner run by 'Santa Claus', a white earded man who patrols the street for useful 'junk' and leaves it on the corner for anyone to take and 'reuse'. I've found some amazing things there and he keeps the stuff outta the landfill.
Reusing is better than recycling anyday!!
I'd love to see free stuff exchanges in every neighbourhood. Or a city-wide designated day of purging where everyone puts their stuff out by the curb to be taken by whomever wants it. Similar to what happens on Montreal's moving day.
