If you’re downsizing or decluttering, you may have amassed a collection of stuff that you’d rather donate or recycle somewhere locally than send to the landfill. We’ve done the legwork for you below in our updated guide.
It’s inspiring to see how many cool organizations are accepting some of the 33 items included on our list below, and repurposing your donations to make Baltimore a better place. If we missed something, email [email protected] and the recycling fairy will find you an answer.
How do I recycle: Appliances, art supplies, rechargeable batteries, bikes, books, building supplies, mobile phones, clothing, CFL bulbs, dry cleaning bags, DVDs and CDs, electronics, eyeglasses, golf equipment, grocery bags, home decor, iPods, medicine, paint, big plastics, oyster shells, school and office supplies, stuffed animals, styrofoam, tools, toys, vases, VHS tapes, video games and consoles, weird stuff and, lastly, yarn.
