Where to Get Rid of Your Stuff

Do you have things that you don’t want but aren’t sure where to take them? That’s a common problem I hear from many people. At Katy Home Organizer, we offer premier home organizing services in Houston to help you manage your space efficiently. Whether it’s recycling, donating, or decluttering, we provide expert guidance that will transform your living environment.

I prioritize keeping waste from landfills, extending recycling beyond cans and bottles to include repurposing usable items. Safe disposal of chemicals is vital; they don’t just vanish. I’ve found a Houston facility for this. If you can’t dispose of hazardous materials, I’m here to help.

Recycling Centers

In terms of recycling centers, not all neighborhoods accept recyclables, which is unfortunate. Not all drop-off centers take what you have. My list of helpful places will hopefully solve your dilemma!

Safe Disposal for Stuff

As for safe disposal centers, they are exactly what they sound like—a place to safely dispose of fluids or materials that should not end up in the landfill or groundwater. Currently, there are only a couple of places in Houston, and I’ve provided their locations along with a list of the accepted items.

Charities to Donate The Stuff You Purge from Your Home

Not at all the charities are equal. Personally, I like to know that what I donate is serving the better good. We just need to get it off our hands and off the to do list. I have a few charities that are useful. Please share with me your favorites and I’ll post them.
