A few good things to remember when clearing the clutter

recyclingAnytime you are faced with unwanted household items, whether its one bulky thing or you are undergoing a clean sweep, you should consider the re-use and recycling opportunities available to you before you simply throw things away. Always ask yourself if the item has more useful life to it. A decision to use the garbage most always is the costliest (to your wallet).

The city’s Recycling Coordinator can help you with available options with just about any household item. Call 425-771-0235, ext. 1603 or email to recycleguy@edmondswa.gov.

Charities are always accepting various items that are still usable. However, they cannot accept items that are broken, torn, ripped or stained.

Hold a garage sale, use the want ads, or check out an abundance of re-use web sites such as www.freecycle.org and www.2good2toss.com.
