Bellingslobsters: That's what some people in Bellingham should be called. I refer to people who leave their junk in front of their property with a "free" sign. No, what it is, is junk and if you don't want it, can't use it or it doesn't work, be mature, be adult, take responsebility and tote it to one of the many charities here that accept donations of clothing or furniture. If the item is small enough for you to get out of your house and onto your curb, there is no excuse why you can't put it in a car and haul it away. If you need to get rid of an appliance in working order, many charities will take the item off your hands. If the appliance or device doesn't work any more, be responsible, be mature, be adult, take responsibility and recycle it. Your donation helps the Salvation Army, Goodwill, ARC and other organizations provide meaningful job training and assistance to those in need. Your junk on the corner is not "free," because everything comes with a price and in this instance, the price is that I have to see it rotting on the corner for weeks. Taken to its logical end, I'm surprised some of these people don't dispense with garbage pick-up and just throw their garbage onto the corner with a "free" sign on it. Bellingham is a beautiful city and a progressive one, too. Junk should be in its proper place, not rotting on the curb.
