   Room-to-Room Booklet (2016)

Springfield’s “Room-to-Room Guide to Household Reuse and Recycling” provides guidance on how to get rid of unwanted household items. This handy booklet lists more than 150 different items/materials and where to donate them in the Springfield area so they will be reused or recycled and not landfilled. From eye glasses to wire hangers, office machines to tools, you will be amazed at the number and type of items organizations and businesses in and around the City of Springfield will gladly accept.
