The extra stuff we have really becomes obvious when a significant life change occurs. Consider moving day, a new baby, or family member added to the household, or the unfortunate passing of loved ones. When people are confronted with a significant life change and unanticipated bulky items, the default can be to throw things in the garbage, illegally dump them on a curb or street, or call a junk hauler. At moments like these, using resources which are available to you can ensure many of the extra things you suddenly don’t need can be reused or recycled.

New additions to the family can also equate to increased spending on furniture and household goods, which can create a stressful situation for cash-strapped families. Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) offers the Life Changes Waste Reduction Flyer to assist Castro Valley residents with handling large quantities of extra “stuff” produced when significant life changes occur. The flyer offers quick local options to sell, donate, or buy gently used items, and more.

CVSan also offers drop-off collection events twice a year and don’t forget about the Bulky & Reuse Pick-Up you can schedule with Alameda County Industries (ACI).
