bathroom and kitchen declutter

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just did a long overdue declutter of out bathroom cabinets and kitchen. I now have 4 big plastic bins of junk that I'm not sure what to do with...

-household cleaning products
-vitamins, otc medicine
-makeup, all types of toiletries
-hair accessories, jewelry, watch that I don't use
-old kitchen stuff (cutting boards, can openers, etc)

This is largely old junk (~5-10 yrs), so most of the stuff that can expire is probably expired.

Would you:

(a) dump everything directly in the trash?
(b) freecycle, and if so, can you stipulate that people take everything rather than pick through for specific items
(c) recycle? I don't want to throw anything bad down the drain, so I was leaning toward option a.

Or is there a better idea I'm missing?

Thanks for any suggestions!

I would throw out the expired medicines and maybe donate the rest to a women's shelter?

If it is 5 years or older, cosmetics will be of no use as they then tend to hoard bacteria.. so those should go in the trash.

Medicines: the same.

The cleaning supply I would put on the street with a "free" sign.
Or recycle it if it hazardous to nature.
If that is not possible, trash it.
