Below is a list of helpful resources related to organizing that are generally available across the state of Michigan. It is important to understand, however, that professional organizers have a very strong working knowledge of local resources and a diverse network of contacts and referral partners which they can draw upon to serve their clients. Many organizers include "Resources" pages on their websites, and the resources they list are often more local and specific to the community or region they serve. Thus, you may wish to visit the websites of professional organizers in your area to look for more information. You may also wish to search the internet for local resources using the name of your City/Town/County and, depending on what you're aiming to find, keywords such as:
Best Buy (information on recycling various electronics, batteries, ink cartridges, appliances, etc.)
Earth911.com (more information on how how to properly recycle various items)
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality - Recycling Information (including information by county)
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality - Waste Management (including info on Hazardous & Medical Waste)
