How to Recycle Anything

From basic recycling rules to clever ways to reuse everyday items, easy ways to help better the environment.

Garage Organizing Checklist

Clear clutter and create order in the garage in just a few simple steps.

  • Assess the clutter. Start by creating three categories: keep, donate, and toss. As you go through the items, assign each one to a category. If you rarely use a piece, it’s probably a good candidate for the donate or toss pile.
  • Donate or toss. Contact local charities and arrange for a pickup of items to be donated; put the toss items out with the trash or recycling.
  • Edit the keep pile. Sort the items you’re keeping into new categories, such as sporting equipment, power tools, etc. Assign each category a location: Sporting equipment, for example, might go in a wall cabinet or a bin in a corner; power tools might be hung on a system of hooks on a large piece of Peg-Board.
