moving and de-cluttering


·       Have a yard sale to find homes for clothes, toys, appliances, and books that you no longer need.

·       When moving, use old newspapers to wrap fragile materials.

·       Use moving boxes with the highest content of recycled paper and bubble wrap containing recycled plastic. Be sure to recycle packaging materials after your move. Many organizations, such as U-Haul, have places where you can drop off unused boxes for others to reuse.

·       Be sure to properly dispose of any non-recyclable items that you won’t be taking with you. Look for household hazardous waste collection days in your community to properly dispose of cleaners, paints, automotive supplies and other hazardous items.
