Yes,  You can get rid of all your stuff today.  Post 'free' at kijiji.  
It'll be gone tomorrow.  My wife put an ad on kijiji for a free futon 
frame, it was gone that day.  Then she put an ad for free for the frame 
(it's a long story, the kind only married folks can appreciate) and it 
was gone within the hour.  And it's being reused which is supposed to be 
better than recycling.

My mom works part time for greg gerber at gerber auctions in wellesley 
and my father in law has used him for some items.  I don't know much 
more than that, but he is local and he holds auctions locally.  Perhaps 
google him and see what he's got going on.
