Stuff Donation and Disposal

As far as I know, Habitat For Humanity picks up stuff for free, so there's no need to leave stuff out by the dumpster.

M-F people can call (703) 360-6700 to schedule a pick-up.

Goodwill used to do it for free, but now they charge a $20 fuel surcharge. Of course, one of their stores is just across the street from Arbors, so maybe they would waive it, if that's where some of the trucks come from.

There's always Craigslist, too, or Freecycle:

There are many items Goodwill will no longer accept. They don't take mattresses/beds, and if your (small) sofas have any blemishes they won't accept those, either!

If you've no need for household items that others could easily use, here is yet another place to consider:
