Trash Talk Tuesday with Antioch Environmental Resources

Sorry, we have been so quiet over the last month. With everything that has been going on, we thought it was better to not keep cluttering your streams with trash talk. But we missed it, so Trash Talk Tuesdays are back. This edition brings you options for donations of usable items.

At the beginning of COVID-19, many of us found ourselves unexpectedly home for quite some time. Cleaning and organizing our personal spaces became a popular pastime. Soon we discovered that we had an accumulation of stuff that could still be used and thought to ourselves, “What are we to do with it?” For a while, all the thrift stores that we normally donated to were closed. Well, the good news is that many of our favorite donation stations are now open and busy as bees stocking up their shelves.

Here is our list of Local Thrift Shops and Donation Stations that are now open for business (though, please call first as things change daily):
