Set out at your curb by CityOfTorontorecycle
Electronic equipment is now collected right at your curbside on your scheduled Garbage Bin collection day. Please set out these items for pick up 0.5 metre (2 feet) away from your Garbage Bin. Large items can be put on the ground. Small items should be put in an open cardboard box or clear plastic bag (it is preferable if small items are not put out as single items). If the weather is bad, please put the items out on your next Garbage Bin collection day.
Always remember to protect your privacy. Clear all personal information from computers, cell phones and electronics prior to collection/drop-off/donation

Take to others' garage sales by andreereuse
Put your stuff in your car and drive around on Saturday mornings (spring and fall are best) looking for garage sales. Ask if you can give it to the host for them to sell and keep the proceeds, only caveat is that you don’t want it back if it does not sell. Works like a charm.

Put out at your curb by mfaganreuse
Leaving items at the curb to be picked up by passers-by is a time-honoured way to reuse items in urban areas. There are a few things you can do to ensure success. Leave an obvious note which simply says “free” so that there is no confusion.
If there is any chance of rain or snow, put small items that could get ruined such as books into clear plastic bags or containers. If you have a non-clear box, then include the items in the note (e.g. “free books”). Small items which might blow away in the wind should also be put into a box or bin. For large items which could get ruined in the weather (such as a couch), you may want to leave them in your house and leave out a note which says “free couch, please knock on front door.” Avoid leaving any open containers as people may treat it as a garbage can.
It is also a good idea to post on local online classifieds (titled “curb alert”) what items you have left out and at what address. Including a photo with this will greatly increase the likelihood of anyone coming by. Make sure to remove the post when your items have been taken.Image source
Freecycle and similar groups are mailing lists for posting unwanted items to see if anyone wants them. There are thousands of such groups worldwide.
