How to Get Rid of Stuff You Declutter: Resources for Responsible Decluttering

1. Call your local waste management company. They might be able to steer you to other local resources for donating, recycling, or repurposing your decluttered items.

Don’t get too caught up in trying to find the perfect organization to donate to. Your objective is to get the clutter out of your house, not save the world. I recommend donating to places that make donating items easy!

2. Donate, donate, donate

3. Give items away to your friends

Have an extra blender you’re not using? Send out a mass text or email to your local friends, and see if anyone wants it.

4. Earth911 – Tons of super-helpful information on recycling. This is a good resource to use when making purchasing decisions too.

5. ThredUp – Send them your old clothes, and you could earn cash for them. Read their accepted items list carefully before sending anything.
