Q: I have been cleaning out our attic and basement and have items I want to donate or recycle but I'm not sure how? Can you offer some direction on the following: prescriptions eyeglasses, old cell phones, crutches, furniture, building supplies? Thanks.
A: I applaud for taking the initiative to dispose of your unwanted goods responsibly. Donation and recycling resources are an integral part of working with an organizer, here are a few options:
Eyeglasses- recycle at any Lenscrafters location http://www.lenscrafters.com/lc-us/find-a-store
Cell Phones- Best Buy stores have donation bins. Mary Kay Consultants also collect for the Mary Kay Ash foundation.
Crutches, walkers or wheelchairs- Check with Global Links.
Furniture Pickup ( good condition) - Vietnam Vets or Salvation Army
Building supplies - Construction Junction and/or The ReStore for Habitat for Humanity
