How to Conquer Your Clutter and Get More Organized

How to Conquer Your Clutter and Get More Organized

I generally have two kinds of home organizing clients. The first calls me out of a sense of obligation…her husband is fed up with the clutter, she feels too guilty/bad/ashamed to have somebody over, but she’s not 100% on board with this decluttering and organizing thing but she wants to be.  The second calls me because she is ready…she has tripped over the last toy, she is done being frustrated by getting dressed in her wreck of a closet, she is sick of looking at the piles of papers on the kitchen counter. After talking for a while, she looks me in the eyes and says “I am just ready. Where do we start?”

First year of recycling a success in Macon-Bibb

In January 2016, Macon-Bibb County introduced a new recycling program that began offering curbside pickup to all interested residents. Upon request, people could get a 65-gallon rolling recycling cart and participate in the new program. After one year of the program, more and more people are interested in being part of this green initiative and diverting trash from the landfill.

“This has been a great first year for the expanded recycling program,” says Solid Waste Director Kevin Barkley. “We’ve been amazed at how quickly this many people have asked to be a part of the program, and we couldn’t be prouder of our community. It shows that people care about recycling and want to help make a greener, more beautiful Macon-Bibb.”
