A complete list of excellent ways to donate, recycle, upcycle and responsibly dispose of everyday household stuff

You wanted an ultimate guide to responsibly decluttering? You got it! Spring is in the air, and it's certainly the perfect time to cleanse your home of your unused or unwanted goods, and spring clean your conscience!

Reduce the waste you send to landfill: Rather than adding to the growing landfill problem in Australia, there are countless recycling programs and sustainable initiatives now at our fingertips, with many accepting donated household goods for refurbishing, recycling, or redistribution to those in need!
