Do you have a strange item you want to get rid of but don’t know what to do with it? Bring it to Clear Your Clutter Day on January 28, from 10am-2pm at Bethany United Methodist Church 10010 Anderson Mill Rd. Near 183, East parking lot. Even if you don’t have a strange item the National Association of Professional Organizers Austin chapter (NAPO-Austin) and their event partners will be taking your good, used items, shredding and junk to help you start the new year off right. Do you have mobility assistance devices (wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, shower chairs, etc.)? Then Austin Groups for the Elderly (AGE) will be happy to have your items. How about women’s new or gently used career clothing and accessories? Dress for Success will be there to take them from you. Most of us have new or gently used shoes (men’s/women’s/children’s) we aren’t using any more. NAPO Austin will send the collected shoes to Soles4Souls. Did you get new gadgets for Christmas? Then drop off your old computers, electronics and cell phone and HeliOS Project will make sure they are refurbished and re-purposed. Other use-able unwanted items like furniture, books, clothes, rugs, art, etc. will be gratefully taken by The Settlement Home for Children’s annual garage sale. All of these things can be used by someone in our community.
You are also invited to bring up to 3 boxes of paper to be shredded by Central Texas Secure Shredding. Ecobox will take discarded flattened moving boxes to be recycled or reused. If it is just no good to anyone any more and not toxic, then Junk Busters USA will take your item to the dump at no charge.
Don’t forget your strangest item! NAPO Austin is having a contest and if your’s is the strangest item dropped off you will win a gift card to the Container Store. So look around a see what kind of clutter you are ready to clear out and bring it by on January 28th.
