Eliminating Fall Clutter - Recycling Ideas


Fall is upon us when the leaves on the trees begin to change colors and there is often a chilly breeze in the air. Many households perform fall cleaning to prepare for the cooler months ahead.

It’s time to clean out your closet and store any summer clothes away. Go through your closet and see if there are any items you no longer need and bring them to a donation center. Green Drop is a great charity with locations in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Do you have any furniture you no longer need? Instead of leaving it outside your house and hoping a neighbor will snatch it or the garbage truck will tow it away, find a site/app to quickly sell it. Craigslist and Letgo are popular sites where you upload photo(s) of what you’re trying to sell with a small description and price listing. Facebook is another great marketing tool to utilize by using a group town page. If you’re feeling old school, having a garage sale is never a bad idea.

Most of the trash we throw away ends up in landfills leading to the problems with toxins, leachate, and greenhouse gases. All of these are dangerous and horrible for our environment. Try and sell and donate items instead of tossing them in the trash. Being more cautious of what we throw away can help make our planet greener.
