Get Rid of Junk – Fast!
When you have a bunch of junk in your home, it can be super stressful, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to keep that broken fridge or that side table that is taking up room in your basement. If you’re trying to get rid of junk around your home that you no longer use, you’re in luck, because there are many ways to get rid of it fast.
So, take a deep breath, and read through the options below so you can find the best way for you to toss out your junk.
Donate that Unwanted Stuff
It goes without saying, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure – this is an old saying many of us have heard time and time again, and today, it still stands true. You know all that stuff you’ve been storing in your basement? Somewhere, someone out there would like that stuff, so go ahead and donate it.
Depending on the area you’re in, you may be able to find some donation drop boxes around. There are national charities such as the Salvation Army
and Habitat for Humanity
that will be more than willing to take your old appliances, furniture, and electronics (they even take exercise equipment).
Look on your local Facebook groups
and see if there is anyone that is in need of the junk you no longer want. When you donate your used washer/dryer, stove, lawnmower, or sofa, you can feel good knowing that you are helping someone in need.
Why Not Recycle?
There are a lot of junk items that you can recycle, especially if they’re made of metal, foam, wood, fibers, and glass. This includes furniture, electronics, appliance, and that old mattress you no longer want.
Recycling the junk you have around your home may take more work than simply tossing an outdated computer monitor into the trash, but recycling means you will be doing your part in helping the earth. Most recycling collection services don’t offer pickup for bulky items such as appliances, so you will need to haul those to the recycling center.
Recycling your junk may take some extra time and there may be costs involved, especially if you need to rent a truck to haul the items, but this may work for many of you.
Get Rid of Junk with a Temporary Dumpster Rentals
If you really want to get rid of that junk fast and you don’t care about recycling it or making extra money from it, then renting a temporary dumpster
to toss it in is the fastest way to get rid of it. When you rent a dumpster, you’ll get to select the number of days to keep the dumpster.
The amount of time can range anywhere from 2 to 10 days. Once you have scheduled an appointment to have the dumpster dropped off, the company will place it in your driveway (or wherever you asked them to) and your job is to fill it up with all the junk you can possibly fit into it. This means the junk will go from your home (or garage) straight into the dumpster.
So now that you know how to get rid of junk fast, don’t you think it’s time to start cleaning your home? Don’t forget to schedule to have the dumpster set up!
