I guess you need a permit (approved by snooping Serena) in Walnut Creek to discard something in your own dumpster. Keep driving honest business people crazy with your meddling and Walmart will move right in and drive customer service to zero. Why not donate your Neiman Marcus loyalty points to a local shelter? I'm sure they don't have enough jewelry.

Surely there is a way to donate 'unsafe' bikes to some organization which could make them OK for kids. Doesn't Goodwill repair things before selling them? Wouldn't a local bike group take them and get them up to par, then donate them to charity? It seems like a total waste.

Or at least donate the bikes to a high school that has classes in mechanics and repair! This way the kids can learn first hand why the bikes were "unrepairable". There's always a good use for something if we just think about it and look for answers that might be unfamiliar to us.
