Spring Cleaning… The Eco-Friendly Way!

Austin Reuse Directory

Spring has finally arrived. The flowers are blooming. The sun is shining. And your house is ready for a good old fashioned spring cleaning.

Clear out the clutter (without sending anything to the landfill) by utilizing the Austin Reuse Directory. Created by the Austin EcoNetwork, and supported by Austin Resource Recovery, the Austin Reuse Directory is designed to make it as easy as possible for Austinites to find a second home for everyday items. Reuse saves items from the landfill and makes them available to your neighbors, who can use them again.

So how does it work?
Using the directory, you’ll be able to easily figure out where to donate or sell your used clothing, electronics, furniture, and other households items. Simply visit AustinReuseDirectory.com, type in the item you want to find a second home for, and voila! The Reuse Directory will produce a list of all the places in town that will accept your item and give it a second life.

You’ll even be able to refine your search by location and item quality, as well as by an organization’s nonprofit status and whether or not they offer home pickup services. You can even narrow your search to produce only thrift stores that will pay you for your unwanted clothing or furniture.

Happy spring cleaning!
