Earth Day Garage Cleaning Gains Space and Green

Earth Day is April 22nd and that’s an excellent time to clean out your garage. Chances are that you have a lot of things in your garage that can be recycled, upcycled, sold or repurposed so you’d be doing your part for the Earth and your garage and you might make a little cash in the process. At Global Garage Flooring & Design, we want everyone to have a garage they can be proud of so whatever your motivation; spring cleaning, Earth Day or getting ready for a new garage floor or makeover, we have some suggestions of where to get rid of your stuff.

 

Busy corner of an overloaded garage.

 

Recycle Locally.
Most municipalities have recycling centers so naturally that can be your first stop. There is usually someone there that will direct you where things go in other words, TVs go in a different place than mattresses. The only downfall is depending on the size of your recycling center, they may not take large items, or hazardous materials and that could include many things from fluorescent lights to TVs. In fact some places make you pay to leave a large console TV.

The first directory is simply a recycle search.  In using it, many of the places were far so it depends on what places are registered, but it’s a place to start. You can plug in your location and what the item is and it will show you via a pin on a map as well as a list of places nearest you that will accept your items.

 

Electronics Recycling.
It can be scary thing if you are getting rid of a computer or something that contains personal information. It’s always best if you can wipe the information but sometimes chargers get lost etc. and you don’t have that option. For these reasons you want to take it to a certified electronics recycler. There are no guarantees unless you wipe the device yourself but this is highly preferable to surrendering it to garbage pickup. Check out this electronics recycling site to find out more about certified recyclers. There is a map, so you can find places all over the U.S.

Dispose Properly of Hazardous Waste.
You may want to read this before you dismiss the fact you might have Hazardous Waste to get rid of. It’s almost guaranteed that every household has at least one if not more items that are considered hazardous waste. A few common examples are:
Harsh chemical cleaners
Paints/thinners
Antifreeze
Weed killers
Insecticide/pesticide
You can be fined if you don’t dispose of them correctly, and even worse, you can potentially harm a person or the environment. 

Sell stuff Online.
Do you have Outgrown kids toys or other things that cost just enough that you don’t want to throw them away? Those things can be put on Ebay, or a town-wide Facebook Marketplace  or Let Go. Additionally, here is a directory that lists a bunch of sites and apps you can use to get some cash for your gently used items like clothes, instruments, electronics and much more. 

Have it hauled away.
If you have sorted everything out and you are left with junk, you can always call 1-800-GOT JUNK or click the link and have it hauled away. 

Once your garage is clean and you have some extra cash, Global Garage Flooring & Design can help you design a space that you can store new stuff more efficiently employing walls, and ceilings and have a beautiful new floor that can cut down on dust so you can use your garage for more than just storing old junk!
