New York 'stooper' furnishes apartments with thrown out things

For New Yorkers, one person's trash is another person's treasure. This is stooping — where thrown out furniture finds a new home instead of ending up in a landfill.

    New York is extremely expensive if people are homeless how does the government expect a $1,000 stimulus check to help them get back on track

    Here in New Zealand its called inorganic rubbish collection time (a specified week or so where the local council picks up anyone's unwanted furniture, appliances etc), people drive around picking things up they may need

    It's a good help to the needy but how many help

    I heard that in some cities, i.e. Barcelona, they have an evening for putting your unwanted things on the pavement and anyone who's looking for things can trawl the streets and hopefully find what they need.

    I love the buy nothing project as well. It’s nice to give stuff to someone in your community you know wants/needs it instead of them having to go pay for it at the second hand store. Look it up!

    I do this in my neighborhood. If I cannot pick it up, I post it on Facebook's Marketplace for free. I wonder why people can't do this much on their own for their own stuff? Would it not be a least a little bit satisfying to know their unwanted item could be used by someone else? In the meantime, we have these amazing people who care enough about the environment to do more than their fair share for it!

    This woman is badass for driving a truck in Manhattan all day picking up furniture and dropping it off someplace else. I guess the $40 drop-off fee just covers her gas and time?

    Bandannas are the worst mask choice. People wearing them during a pandemic should not be spotlighted.

    do you de-bug this furniture? Bedbugs live in everything and are very hard to kill/get rid of! Food can be 100 feet from bug, eggs live after spraying, it is a horror show to get rid of them, be very careful taking second hand anything!
