Are you getting ready to tackle some Spring Cleaning around your home or office? Clearing clutter is a critical first step to organizing. When clutter (the things you no longer need, want, or add value to your work or life) is out of the way, you’ll be able to find what you need, when you need it, much faster.
After you’ve removed the items you no longer want, you may be wondering what to do with them. We’ve got you covered! There are a variety of organizations that handle donations, recycling, trash and hazardous waste.
