In the case of the ferret cage, I more thought we don’t move it because we didn’t have anywhere to move it TO. Using the tip costs money (and it was still perfectly usable anyway!) and even getting it to an op-shop or something required the use of a car. so I hoped I could persuade somebody to pick it up, if I offered it for free.

(Which is its own kind of madness, mind you. If not for the twice-yearly council pickup, it would be too expensive for poor people to throw junk away.)
