Cool Places to Donate Your Stuff

We’ve been in the Professional Organizing business for quite a few years and the list of donation/recycle places has grown to a 5 page document. I thought I’d take a moment and post a selection of businesses that gladly accept your reusable items – of all sorts.

Feel free to send this along to your friends and family.

“360 degrees of good – Something amazing happens when you start recycling. And that triggers
something else amazing. And so on and so on until the whole world benefits. “
