Green Moving : recycle, donate, pack – part one

Posted by Snap Greene | Posted in Go Green | Posted on 17-05-2011

Green Moving -
As you get ready for moving day, things you never even knew you owned magically surface out of nowhere, and you ask yourself do I really need this? Before the piles of “what to leave” and “what to pack” overwhelm you, make a plan to get rid of all those belongings that aren’t hitching a ride to your new place.

As your full service green moving company, NorthStar Moving® has the solution for your bulging moving boxes. We’ve partnered with local green community organizations to help recycle, reuse, or dispose of your unwanted belongings while helping to keep our planet a little cleaner.

Your old VCRs and boom boxes can seem like relics to your kids but they can also become harmful to environment if not discarded properly.

NorthStar Moving® and E-Cycle Environmental have joined forces to provide green moving to ensure that these items are recycled domestically and safely. Before you throw out your “whatchamacallit” ask your client loyalty team about moving your unwanted electronics to E-Cycle or contact our green friends from E-cycle directly.

Recycle unwanted furniture

That couch has seen you through some good times and bad times, but sometimes it’s just time to say goodbye. Instead of throwing your couch out on the curb, help find it a good home. Working with our friends at the local Habitat for Humanity we can help moving your unwanted furniture that is in good condition to help furnish new homes for families in need. Give your old furniture new life in a new home to help our planet stay green by moving with a green moving company.

Recycle unwanted clothing

Make space in your new closet for new clothes! As you go through piles of your old clothing hiding in the back of your closet, make a special pile to donate to the Goodwill of Southern California. We can help moving your unwanted clothing to the local Goodwill, lightening your load while giving back to the community.
