Getting organized is at the top of many people’s New Year’s Resolution list. At GreenDrop we take the stress out of getting organized by offering donors easy home pick ups and convenient drop-off locations. To make things even simpler, we’re sharing tips to get organized in the New Year!
Americans throw away about 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. Between the presents and the parties, the increase of waste isn’t a surprise but that doesn’t mean we have to accept this hike. There are many ways to make the usual holiday activities more sustainable.
Below are just a few ways you can enjoy the holidays more sustainable this year!
At GreenDrop we couldn’t be happier that the Giving Season is here. We’re spreading the spirit of generosity by sharing a story of an incredible student who organized a clothing drive for our partner, the National Federation of the Blind.

The next few months will be filled with family gatherings to celebrate the upcoming holidays. It’s easy to get swept away in the holiday rush, but the day before guests arrive is no time to sort through drawers and clean out closets.
Focus on decluttering public areas like the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Remove unnecessary clutter off of counters and tables.
Of course, if you have the time it is best to do a full organizing sweep but if you’re in a pinch bag up the clutter and store it in the basement or out-of-the-way closet and sort after the guests depart.
Regardless of when you get your organizing done GreenDrop will be there to clear the clutter! Give us a call before or after the holidays to pick up the things you no longer need. Or you can drop-off at our donation centers any day of the week. Either way, GreenDrop will handle all the heavy lifting and provide you with a tax receipt. When you donate to GreenDrop you’re clearing the clutter from you home and helping national charity organizations.
Here are a few of our tips to organize your home around the holidays.
