When the weather begins to warm up, my green thumb is in full-force. I love working in my garden, re-potting my succulents, and purging everything that is weighing my household down. This month, we bring you tips for organizing your shed (check out that tool storage!) and ways to get rid of extra garbage, paper, and electronics. If the thought of tackling these projects on your own is daunting, get in touch for a free consultation. Take control of your stuff!
San Jose residents! Did you know that if you have a bunch of (or just a little) extra garbage to be collected, you can get special stickers so that you can get it all picked up at once?
Just put extra garbage in a 32-gallon plastic garbage bag labeled with an extra garbage sticker on the curb near the garbage cart and you're set.
Extra garbage stickers may be purchased for $6.25 at all San Jose libraries, Lucky, and Safeway stores or at the Customer Service Center on the first floor of San José City Hall. A portion of the sales from stickers sold at San José libraries supports library programs!
Not in San Jose, your city most likely has a very similar program. Check out your government website for more info!
