JDog Junk Removal and Hauling does not want to put your old toys in a landfill. Their article proposes several positive ways to get a used toy to another useful life. To summarize: Donate old Toys! Ordinarily, estates have some toys in the attic. Executorium’s second mission is to “Keep Stuff out of Landfills“, so naturally we like things like Hotwheels (Check values!), games (with all the pieces), and usable children’s toys to find second homes.
What is more, there’s something positive about giving a second life to items that have served you well. It’s good karma to give toys a second chance. Not to mention, keeping items out of landfills is good karma. JDog reports 60-80% of their hauls is recycled. Certainly, that’s good karma. That’s a brand culture we can get behind. Thanks for the info and inspiration JDog!
Undoubtedly, toys of potential value you’ll want to treat as an asset of the estate, i.e. dad’s metal soldiers and tootsie cars from the 30s, etc.
So check out JDog’s ideas on ways to donate old toys via the link above.
One they may have missed is Freecycle, a sort of Craigslist for free items, where you can list free toys in a local Freecycle group.
To be sure, only donate toys if they are not overly worn, damaged, or missing pieces/parts.
