Furniture Clean Up Day
We will collect: Furniture & Rugs only!
Please have items out before 7:00am on Saturday. Please be patient.
All items will be picked up as soon as possible.
Furniture pickup day is this Saturday the 16th.
Thanks to the work of Village resident Kristen Olson (who is also the Village Historian), we have partnered with Significant Elements* (http://www.
Pickup day will happen as scheduled on Saturday (please have all items out by 7am as we pickup early to avoid traffic), but Significant Elements will be making a first pass and taking any items that meet their donation guidelines for reuse. They won’t be able to provide donation receipts, but it will keep usable item out of the landfill and you won’t have to haul them directly do a donation center.
Significant Elements accepts solid wood furniture, mirrors, antiques, and decor. SE does NOT accept carpets/rugs or completely upholstered items such as couches. For a list of what they do and do not accept see this page http://www.
Items that cannot be reused will be picked up by the Village later Saturday afternoon or early Sunday morning (but please have everything out Saturday morning).
This is a first year trial of an idea like this so we would be interested in hearing from residents about how it goes.
*Significant Elements is a nonprofit program of Historic Ithaca promoting the reuse of building materials and furnishings. Sales of donated items support job readiness training for young adults at SE’s retail location, and Historic Ithaca’s other programs. Contact Kristen Olson, kristen.v.olson@gmail.
