I have often agonized about throwing stuff away into landfills (old computer monitors, old phones, a TV and VCR which does not work perfectly well but would cost more to repair than to buy a new one, and many other things). I used the "For Free" section of Craigslist.com recently to get rid of some things I did not have a need for but which no one would buy.
The Freecycle (TM) network provides another way for people to give away things that they no longer need for free.
And its not just in the US - including UK , Australia , Canada , Germany, and many other countries around the world. I learned about this after watching a video, that was uploaded on current.tv, about a Freecycle event organized in Brooklyn.
Give stuff away-- keep good stuff out of landfills!
Also, use the FreecycleFinder page to look for stuff people may be looking to give away. Also check out these del.icio.us posts tagged Freecycle.
