Time to Declutter

Running out of space in your home? Time to declutter! When it comes to getting rid of unwanted items consider 3 options: donating, recycling and/or disposing.

Do you have gently used clothing, outdated furniture, mismatched household goods or any spare toys? Local charitable organizations would love to take these off your hands. 

Scrap metal, computers, appliances and other items can be recycled and dropped off at various nearby locations. If there's anything too large for your trash cart or beyond repair, you have several options for disposal.
