Re "Sacramento cracking down on illegal dumping" (City Beat, July 16): One solution to the dumping of unwanted furniture is to place a free ad on FreeCycles.org. Join your local community and offer your items as a gift if they still have some useful life. Too many people want shiny new things, or they moved to a smaller home, so dump things that other people can use and give more life to.
Other options are Craigslist under "Free Stuff" and the Pennysaver "Free Stuff." For all other large trash, please call the county for a curbside pick up at your home.
