Recycling

During a large project such as clearing out a garage or basement space, we often have more than will fit in curbside recycling bins. Some items will not be recycled by the city at all, but can be recycled through other avenues.

At the end of each session, Stuff Adjust will remove the recycling, and deliver it to the appropriate facilities. Old electronics are accepted at recycling centers. Household chemicals, paint, batteries, power adapters and more go to the hazardous waste department at Metro Transfer Centers.

Here is a brief, current list of items which can be recycled or donated.blue recycling graphic
