You won’t take everything with you when you move. Whether it’s a factor of phasing out old items, not having room, or uncovering some objects that you had completely forgotten about, some things will not make the journey to your new residence.
The question now is, what do you do with your extra stuff?
There are plenty of places where you can donate your unwanted items, which helps both you and the community.
When you move, it’s not uncommon that some of your furniture won’t make the trip. If the furniture is in good shape, however, it would be a shame to just throw it out. Instead, you can donate your old furniture. Organizations such as the Salvation Army and the Cleveland Furniture Bank will accept your old furniture. In fact, both groups offer pickup services to help you donate.
Smaller items can be donated as well. The Salvation Army will accept other household items, as well, and The Plain Dealer has a list of places in Northeast Ohio where you can donate everything from books to baseball equipment.
There are some things that just can’t be donated, so you’ll need to find a way to properly dispose of them.
Some items, such as unwanted medicine or latex paint, can be disposed of as part of your regular trash as long as you follow specific instructions, while others will need to be taken to a special drop-off site.
For a full guide of how to properly dispose of certain hazardous household items, refer to the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District’s instructions.
