Move Green

Not sure what to do with your broken vacuum?

Moving is a great opportunity to pare down, de-clutter, and get rid of household items that you don't want or that aren’t working anymore. It can be very liberating and there are plenty of thrift stores, happy to take your lightly used items. The downside, however, is what to do with all the stuff that’s not good enough to donate.

If you’re anything like me, the pangs of landfill guilt send me looking for other options. Whether you're in a small town like Roberts Creek BC or downtown Vancouver, the Recycling Council of British Columbiaprovides an easy to use search on their website, for all your hard-to-recycle house hold items.

Check out their Recyclepedia here.

If you're not finding what your looking for, give them a call at 1-800-667-4321 or
send an email to: to find out where to recycle everything from car seats to hair dryers.

Happy Moving!
