Certified Professional Organizer in San Antonio Gives Tips on Where to Take Your Clutter

Professional Organizer San Antonio 

Professional Organizer San AntonioAs a  Professional Organizer San Antonio, I encourage people to free themselves of as much clutter as possible in as “green” a way as possible. Since some folks started getting into a “New Year’s Resolution cleanout” mood, I thought I’d list a few resources that will help spare landfills from lead, mercury, and other toxins. Some charge a fee, which is a small price to pay for ridding your home of annoying clutter and saving the earth. Some are non-profits, so be sure to ask about a receipt for donations.

Quick Fix: Declutter + Donate = Change Lives

Goodwill of San Antonio accepts almost anything under the sun – even computers and electronics – but not building and hazardous materials. Save the earth, get rid of clutter, and help others in the process! Goodwill might not have the words “women” or “children” in their title, but boy do they help the community!  If you’re not sure how they use your donations to help, watch this short video.

Get It All Hauled Off:

Rubbish Works is a favorite of a professional organizer San Antonio. They pick up everything you no longer want in your home or office and deliver it to the appropriate places: donations to Goodwill, building materials to Habitat for Humanity, recycling to the appropriate centers.  The last resort is the landfill. They offer fantastic customer service and are less expensive than leading competitors. You don’t even have to drag items to a certain spot – just point, and they’ll pick it up.
