Allow used goods charities to accept reusable items at the entrance to transfer stations & landfills

At almost all disposal facilities you can recycle or dispose of items but there is no place to drop off reusable items.  To overcome this challenge this idea is to allow used goods charities such as Habitat for Humanity or Salvation to station a truck at the entrance to each Landfill and Transfer Station.  Residents could then drop off items to those charities and then avoid the tipping fee for disposing them.  Research has shown the people are willing to drop off items for reuse on their way to the dump provided they don’t have to go to a separate location to do son
