One great way to maximize space in your home is consistent recycling. The process of recycling can be extremely overwhelming if done all at once. There’s a lot that can be recycled in every room, with the right guidance. Room by room, here are our favorite ways to make that extra space through recycle.
- Recycling in the bedroom is the easiest to figure out. Start with old linens that no longer serve its purpose. Does your bedding still work or is it starting to feel old and shabby? Recycle or donate
- With clothes, the “if you haven’t worn it in 12 months, you don’t need it” approach works best. Donate items that can still be worn and recycle anything that cant be donated.
- Accessories and other items such as toys, games and books usually in the bedroom should be considered for recycling if no longer useful
- Pay attention to smaller appliances that no longer function properly. Items like blender, coffee machine, hot plate, egg beater are better off recycled than attempting to repair.
- If there are utensils you haven’t used in a year, donate. Pots that can not be used, such as pots without lids, can also be recycled.
- In addition, to maintain a recycling standard be sure to have recycling bins in your kitchen. An organic bin for plastics, bottles to return for deposit refund and paper.
- Recycling in the bathroom is all about creating storage space.
- Items like shampoo, pill and medicine containers,body wash and mouthwash bottles should be recycled.
- In addition old, unused personal care items such as electric toothbrush and dryers can be recycled.
Other household items, that can surprisingly be recycled include:
- Fluorescent bulbs
- CDs, DVDs and gaming discs
- Eye glasses, dental toiletries, etc.
Recycling can be a rewarding task; giving you space you need while helping to protect the planet. For items that cannot be donated, recycled and you do want to keep? Consider a secure self storage unit.
