Trash comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes, gets downright complicated.
The complication starts when you don’t know where or how to toss these unwanted junks out of your property; this gets even worse if your trash is bulky. Worn out cabinets, rotted doors or wooden furniture, irreparable car parts, tables that have outlived their purpose, obsolete television sets—these are all unfortunate cases and examples of large trash. We all have them, so how do we get rid of them?
Getting rid of large trash and other bulky items can be quite arduous and time-consuming. This is especially more difficult if you don’t own a truck. However, there are ways you can still pull this off. One effective way is to look for a garbage removal company such as Same-Day Rubbish Removal.
To prepare your large trash for removal in general, you may follow the tips below.
1. Leave Them Out On The Curb
Possibly the cheapest and most efficient way to get rid of your large trash is to haul it to the curbside and have your local waste-disposal service come to pick it up. To ensure that the trash would be disposed of properly, you should contact the local office to confirm whether they have the capacity to transport the junk items, especially if they’re large ones.
2. Rent A Dumpster
While this isn’t very cost-efficient, renting a dumpster may help with certain cleaning projects. If you’re renovating your house, moving into another, doing a major cleaning operation, or changing up your home for the season, then utilizing a dumpster as temporary storage for your trash is ideal. This mini-dump will give you enough time to focus on your current project whilst allowing you to dispose of any large object that you no longer need.
For home junk, unless you’re disposing of furniture, you may only need to rent a 10-yard dumpster, with the dimensions of 14 inches x 7.5 inches x 3.5 inches. You can place everything you need to let go of inside the container and wait for the weekly garbage disposal team to take it away.
3. Try Listing The Item Online
On the other hand, selling the items online would be ideal if you have belongings that you no longer need, but can still be used. Clothes, old furniture, and extra gadgets are some great items to list online.
If think your stuff still have the potential to be remodeled or recycled, they’ll definitely be appealing, especially to DIYers, recyclers, and collectors. Websites like eBay and Craigslist can help you earn a little extra cash as you sell stuff that you don’t need anymore.
4. Put Up A Yard Sale
We saved the most interesting one for last: putting up a yard sale. Anything old, disused, or outdated by today’s standards can still interest some people out there. Once they see you selling a TV that was all the rage in the 90s, a toilet that worked if you pushed the flush down hard enough, a cabinet that doesn’t close its doors all the way through, or even a microwave that no longer “dings” when it’s done, they’ll give you their money.
It goes without saying that you shouldn’t price your items higher or at their original value. Definitely sell these for much cheaper. Often, the primary reason these people would buy your old items is that they don’t want to pay the intimidating price tag of brand new stuff.
Look on the bright side: the more junk you have out on the yard, the more you’ll get paid for it.
Getting rid of your large, bulky junk can be difficult. But there are many, many other ways this can be done. The less clutter you have in your home, the more it’s going to be easy for you and those who live with you to find comfort and peace. Sometimes what you once loved will find its place in the home of another person.
