I am a head custodian at a high school and collect lots of unwanted furniture from teachers. Most of the furniture is in good shape, but the teacher just doesn’t have a use for it anymore. It was always difficult to find new owners for these items, and many times they would go to the dump.
I decided to do something different. I bought a digital camera, took pictures of all the furniture I had and sent out a massive email to all the staff informing them of the items. I could not believe that all of the items were gone in just one day! I received emails from the staff telling me what a great idea that was! I hope that you will pass this tip on to the custodial staff at your sites.
