Mysterious Roll-off Dumpsters Appearance at Wilson & Paulina.

I thought perhaps the dumpster that showed up around 10:00 p.m. last Wednesday at Wilson & Paulina was related to giving the streets a good cleaning after the past winter. Later I noticed that there was also one parked kitty-corner. This morning I woke up to find that now there are two side-by-side on the SE corner. Anyone know the purpose of these? I live in the building that they're parked in front of and there is no construction taking place here.

Hi there. I have a few pieces of furniture to get rid of pronto - seriously, if you can come pick them up, you can have them for FREE. That's right, FREE. Good condition sofas - we just need to make room for a baby, so goodbye spare room, hello nursery. Non-smoking, but cat home. Must pick up.

The first is a black, IKEA ektorp sofabed - it's a few years old, but in really good shape - we've used in a spare room for the occasional out-of-towners. IKEA no longer carries the sofa, but I've found replacement covers online elsewhere, if black isn't your thing. The cover is easily removed to be washed. There are some minor nicks where the cat got a hold of it, along the back. This guy is heavy. And we can throw is the squishy, foam mattress topper we use with it to make it more comfortable.

The second is a set of dark brown, corduroy-ish apartment sized sofa/loveseat and oversized arm chair. Two years old - the sofa is in good shape - some minor wear, we would keep, but we came into a different living room set. The chair, on the other hand, has a rip along the back where the pillow meets the frame - I believe it's easily repaired - I'm just lazy - so we've just thrown a blanket over it. And woah - get this, it comes with THREE pillows.

I can't get both pictures to load, so let me know if I can send one to you or if you have other questions.
