My mom is the queen of recycling. If someone throws out a couch, she dismantles it and burns the wood in the heater and bugs people to see if they need springs. Everyone who has stuff "too good to throw" gives it to her. When I lived there for a spell, I kept them warm burning cast away polyester dresses for most of the winter. Just a hint, over packing them in a fire creates a small explosion.
