Trash?

#1LeBurns63Posted 6/11/2013 7:33:45 AM
Just started yesterday and while fishing got some trash (a tire and a boot).

What am I supposed to do with this stuff? I can't find the trash bin anywhere and the blue trashcan on Main Street doesn't seem to work. If I keep fishing I'm afraid I'm going to fill up my inventory with this stuff.

Also I found a gem in a rock. What am I supposed to do with that?

Thanks!

I'm glad your opinion differs from mine. What a boring place this world would be if it didn't.

You can "sell" them at Re-Tail (really, you pay to get rid of it). It's worth it because it increases your approval rating pretty nicely. Besides, it's only 80 bells or so for each trash item. I hear you can actually get rid of them if you have a trash bin item in your house you can get rid of them that way.

The pre you found can be sold for 1000-2000 bells, but when the blue guy at Re-Tail wakes up (about a week after you start and selling about 50,000 bells worth of stuff there) and he'll use them to change the color of your furniture and stuff.

Sell them at Re-Tail? I thought that was like a thrift shop or something where I set the item down and other townspeople buy it, then I get a cut of the profit. I hadn't used it yet but that's how I assumed it worked. I did buy a fern there for 800 bells.

You can sell stuff to Reese (think that's her name).

If I played a game in my childhood, it simply must be the best game ever!
... You found flaws with said game? YOU'RE WRONG!

Why the heck would I do that? Where is the stinking trash can?

Y'gotta put the trash on the ground, wait a day, and catch a fly!

Unless that's no longer a thing.

Because it improves your rating as mayor to get rid of them. In previous games you didn't have to pay, they just took them from you. Maybe Timmy/Tommy's shop will take them off your hands like Nook used to, for no cost.
