Trashswag helps people find salvageable materials like lumber or furniture that others have thrown out.

People often leave old furniture and other items on the street instead of selling or disposing of them. ‘Trashswag,' a Toronto-based company, aims to help people in the area discover unwanted materials they might find useful.
