Clean-Up: What to do with Old Toys, Clothes

Do you have items you no longer need? A number of holiday collections are underway and items can be easily donated at one location.

Are you buying a new winter jacket? Do you have holiday lights that no longer work? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?

If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in the Nazareth area and items can be dropped off at:

  • Goodwill - 3926 Nazareth Pike (Route 191), Bethlehem Township
  • Marisa's Mixed Bag - 216 Nazareth Pike, Bethlehem (Lower Nazareth Township)

Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? Drop off used cells at Staples, AT&T and Best Buy.

Have old holiday lights that no longer work? Maybe you switched colors or swapped old lights for LED ones? Whatever the reason, if you have lights that you're not hanging this year, they can be recycled. Visit earth911.com for a list of mail-back programs.

Is your organization collecting donations this holiday season? Let us know. Leave a note in comments or e-mail Local Editor Mallory Vough at mallory.vough@patch.com.
