Methods of Junk Removal

What is junk to one person maybe a treasure to another and vice versa.  At some time or another everyone has had an accumulation of things and may need some form of junk removal.  There are so many ways to do this, some more green than others.  If your junk is really just debris from a construction project or cleaning up your yard, then straight to the disposal center is your best bet.  If the stuff you need to get rid of is items – used, broken, parts, etc. you need to think a bit further about whether some of your items can be reused.

The easiest thing to do would be to ask friends and family if they might have uses for some of these things or know others that might.  If that doesn’t work the next best thing would be trying to sell some of these things for either profit or for a charity.  Free services like Craigslist allow individuals to list their unwanted items by category for a certain price.  Alternatively, charities such as the Salvation Army will often come to your home and pick up items that they want to sell in their retail stores – the monies from your unwanted items will be put to good use through their charity.

If you don’t want to go that route there are several other ways to get rid of things without calling a junk removal service.  You can donate toys and sports equipment to a local community center or clothes and supplies to a local shelter.  Additionally, you can use a website such as Freecycle to list your unwanted items for others in the network that might be interested in taking them off your hands – you may even see some things that you would like to have that someone else is trying to get rid of.

All these methods of junk removal help the environment, keep junk out of the landfills and can help make you feel better all around.  Helping other people automatically makes you feel good about yourself and will probably make you think twice from now on when disposing of your unwanted items.
