Nobody likes dealing with junk, but before you call a junk removal company, it’s important to assess your needs first. There are many types of household and garden junk, and there are many ways to remove it. Determine what you want to dispose of: household waste, yard waste, trash, or renovation waste.
Preparing for your next junk removal service

- Make a list of what you want to get rid of
Most people have no idea how much they actually have. Some items can be recycled, donated, or hauled away by the city. Making a list will also help the junk removal company provide a more accurate quote for their services.
- Consider resale value
Not everything needs to be thrown away. Renovation waste, including antique wood doors, hinges, handles, knobs, or brass fixtures, have re-sale value to collectors and modelers. Consider advertising on classifieds, using eBay or Amazon, or if you believe your items are valuable, get them appraised. There are many avenues of earning from your ‘junk’.
- Create three piles
Create three piles for items you want to keep, throw out, or donate. Be realistic. Don’t donate or give away broken items.
- Declutter closets
Now’s the time to get rid of unused clothing, household items, or anything else gathering dust in closets, basements, garages, or attics. If these items haven’t seen the light of day for a year, you’ll probably never use them. If you’re going to invest in a junk removal service, use this opportunity to get rid of as much as possible.
- Determine if you’re responsible for your junk
Do you have garden waste? If so, is it up to you to get rid of it? After major weather events, cleanup issues like fallen trees or branches, your homeowner’s insurance might cover some of the removal costs.
- Don’t get overwhelmed
Your list of what to get rid of may seem overwhelming, but using a professional junk removal service can make the process quick and simple.
