One problem that still faces many
homeowners is the process of getting rid of large quantities of junk.
Take these five items for example, your normal garbage company
probably won’t pick them up.

1. Old Furniture

Got an old couch you want to get rid
of? Don’t leave it out on your curb, chances are your garbage
company won’t pick it up. Your best bets are breaking it up into
small pieces or donating it to a local Goodwill.

2. Car Tires

Old car tires are too big to throw away
in the garbage, too heavy to bag, and unless you have high-powered
tools, too difficult to break down. Recycle them instead, tire rubber
can be used in turf fields, playgrounds, and sneakers.

3. Appliances

Appliances are simply too big to throw
away, and some of them contain hazardous materials that can’t be
deposited into a landfill. Refrigerators, for example, must be
properly drained of their refrigerant before they can be thrown away
or recycled.

4. Roofing/Construction Materials

Did you recently re-shingle your roof,
or do another large-scale home improvement project? If your
contractor doesn’t include waste disposal as part of their job, you
could be stuck getting rid of tons (literally) of garbage and
materials yourself.

5. Anything Not Bagged Up

No matter what you are trying to throw
away, you better make sure it’s bagged up. Even the smallest,
simplest of items will be turned down if they aren’t packaged
properly.
