Noun: A thing that is considered worthless or meaningless.
There has been a Council Cleanup, that means people put out their unwanted items onto the kerbside and the Council will collect them and dispose of the garbage.
I love council cleanups and I firmly believe that "one man's trash is another man's treasure" and much to my families horror I have rescued some great things from throw out piles. Sometimes my family are definitely lacking imagination. If they can't Google it or find it on a Wiki they don't want to know about it!

Anyway giving a preloved item a new lease of life and a brand new home is a community service, it's both reuseing and recycling.
Currently I am reading a fabulous book "Alabama Stitch Book" by Natalie Chanin. http://alabamachanin.com/journal/
In her book she writes about how during the American Depression people reused everything. No one had a bin. They didn't throw out anything, just about everything was reused or recycled. Today we are a "throw away" society. I want to move away from throw away.

This weekend is a long weekend, so I will make time to cleanup all my treasure, toast marshmallows around Luke's soon to be "mobile brazier" and best of all celebrate with my family Jack's 15th Birthday!!!
