How long do you give families to pick up their childís belongings after termination of contract?

What do you do with the belongings if they donít come for them?

I don't go by a specific amount of time but when I get tired of having it laying around, I either toss the stuff or use it. Someone left a full pack of unopened diapers. I kept those and use them for emergencies when a parent hasn't replenished their kids stash of diapers. If it's clothing and in good repair, I use it for times when I don't have a change of clothing for a kid.

I do have one kid's backpack from maybe 2 years ago. It was personalized with her name; I really should toss; I doubt they're coming back for it at this point and the name is unusual enough that I can't really give it to anyone to use! For some reason, I hesitate to toss it. I probably should have a policy just so I can throw these things out without feeling so guilty.

I mail it to the parents. It's a business expense and I don't want the parents accusing me of "stealing" or something else later on.
