Sustainability & Eco-Friendly Resources

When I organize homes and offices, a large part of my organizational services is aiding in downsizing/ decluttering household items and getting rid of all sorts of stuff! From clothes, shoes, pantry items, to larger items such as bed frames, mattresses, desks, tables, etc. Most of these items can be donated to local organizations or recycled.

I've compiled a list of resources that are able to recycle and repurpose your items here in the Central Texas area. This list will continue to be added to and changed as I gather more information, so if you don't see something in your area just yet - keep tuning in! Also - if you have any recommendations for me to add to this list, please let me know via the contact form or message on Facebook!


Thank you for contributing to keeping our community clean and resourceful!
