Cleaning out your home? Here’s what to do with your old stuff!

If you
are planning on cleaning out your attic, basement, garage, shed, or
entire house, you will quickly discover that you have a lot of stuff
that you have no need for. So what are you going to do with all of
it? While you could throw it all away, there are ways to make good
use out of your old stuff, or even make some money.
this five-step process to make the most out of your old junk:
  1. Repurpose It. You
    can get creative with some of your old stuff and find new uses for
    it. Doing a Pinterest search for “repurposed junk” will yield
    thousands of results and could spark some great ideas for your next
    DIY project.
  2. Sell It. Instead
    of throwing your stuff away, why not make some extra money by
    selling it? You would be surprised at what kind of stuff people will
    buy at tag sales and through online services such as CraigsList and
  3. Donate It. If
    you can’t find another use for your junk and nobody wants to buy it,
    try giving it to a local charity. They aren’t going to take the tire
    to your old bike, but clothes, toys, electronics, and furniture that
    are in good condition can be donated to people in need.
  4. Recycle It. There
    is inevitably going to be items you come across that can’t be
    repurposed, sold, or donated. Look at everything that is left over
    and determine what can be taken to a nearby recycling center. Old
    scrap metal, rubber, and even some appliances can be given a new
    life instead of taking up space at the local dump.
  5. Trash It. Throwing
    something away should only be done as a last resort after you have
    exhausted all of your other options. Just make sure you adhere to
    your local dump’s regulations about what can and can’t be taken
    there – some of them are stricter than you imagine.
If you
are cleaning out your home, chances are you will have more garbage
than can fit in your normal trash can – even after selling,
donating, and recycling what you can. If you live in New York City,
Nassau County or Suffolk County, consider renting a dumpster from
1-866-We-Junk-It. We donate and recycle everything we can, and only
take what isn’t salvageable to the dump. Plus we know all about
landfill regulations, so you don’t have to!

5 Tips to a Successful Spring Cleaning

the snow in New York, spring officially starts tomorrow and warm
weather isn’t too far behind. This is the time of the year
when every homeowner makes a list of cleaning projects that they
swear will get done – and it often the same last year’s list. Use
the following tips to make this spring your most successful cleaning
season yet.
Start Early
early is the number one way to ensure a successful spring cleaning.
After you figure out what you want to get done, start doing it as
soon as possible. If you are waiting for the weather to warm up, take
care of the inside chores first.
Start Big
If you
really want to get going with your spring cleaning, tackle the
biggest project on your list first. Getting it out of the way means
that you don’t have to do the hardest thing last, after you are
already tired from the smaller tasks. It will also give you the
confidence and motivation to complete your other chores because you
know that it will only get easier.
Clean Your Gutters
all of the snow has finally melted, it’s a good idea to climb up your
ladder and give your gutters a good cleaning. April showers not only
bring May flowers, they will bring leaky roofs and mold problems if
your gutters can’t properly drain.
Don’t Forget The Drawers
drawers and cabinets in your home are often neglected and hardly
cleaned because all you need to do is close them to make the mess go
away. But just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean that it isn’t
there. Clear out your kitchen cabinets, medicine cabinets, and
clothes drawers once per year to make room for new items.
Leave It to the Pros
easiest way to spring clean is by not doing it. If you live in New
York, a clean home is only a phone call away with 1-866-We-Junk-It.
We provide junk removal services and dumpster rentals to homes and
businesses in Long Island and New York City. Our team of
professionals will haul away old furniture and appliances while you

Qualities to Look for in a Dumpster Rental Service

Not all
dumpster rental services are created equal. If you have been shopping
around for a rental dumpster, you have probably noticed that every
business has different products, prices, and policies. Finding the
right company can be both frustrating and confusing, so consider
these three factors when making your decision.
Sizing Options
more dumpster sizes that a company offers, the better chance you have
of finding the size that is right for you. Choosing the right size
can be a little tricky – too small and you have to rent another
dumpster, too big and you pay for more than you need.
1-866-We-Junk-It carries five dumpster sizes so that you can always
get the one that is perfect for you.
Disposal Process
people don’t care about what happens to their junk after the dumpster
leaves their property, but at 1-866-We-Junk-It, we do all we can to
make the most out of your unwanted goods. Most of the materials that
we haul away actually go to recycling centers so that they can be
reused. We also donate many items to local charities and people in
need; only items that can’t be donated or recycled get brought to the

projects. Some dumpster rental services require you to place your
order more than a week in advance, but that isn’t always an option.

services for our customers for when time is of the essence.

5 Tips for a Successful Yard Sale

man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
This age-old adage is the perfect mantra for yard sales; a magical
place where you can find everything and anything for little more than
the change in your pocket. If you are planning on hosting a yard sale
of your own, use these five tips to make it the best that it can be.
Spread the word.
yard sale will be successful without customers; start spreading the
word about two weeks before the day of the sale. You can advertise to
your local community in many ways without paying a cent for ad space.
Utilize free online sources such as Craigslist and Facebook, which
has several groups dedicated to local tag sales. Posting signs around
the town is another way to attract attention – just check to make
sure you aren’t breaking any town laws first.
Perfect your signage.
If you
choose to post signs around the town to advertise your garage sale,
make sure of a couple of things. First, the sign should be readable.
Not only does this mean neat handwriting, it means big text and using
a thick marker instead of a ballpoint pen so people can see the words
from their cars. You should also make sure all necessary information
is included; such as the date and time of the sale and your address.
Attract people driving
Even if
the advertising leading up to your sale was unsuccessful, you can
still entice oncoming traffic to stop and take a look at your items.
The best way to do this is by placing your best items in the very
front of your yard so they are easily visible to those passing by. A
free pile is another good trick; lure potential customers in by
giving small items away for free, and try to make a sale once they
are browsing.
Stay organized.
is key to any good yard sale. Make sure to have all of your items
properly tagged and sorted into appropriate groups – furniture,
kitchen items, toys, clothing, etc. A well-organized garage sale
makes items easier to find for browsers and increases the chances of
them finding something worth buying.
Price to sell.
Keep in
mind the target audience of garage sales; many times, your customer
will be someone who just happened to be driving by and notice your
sale. This person likely isn’t planning on spending hundreds of
dollars, in fact they probably don’t even have that much cash on
them. Yard sales are usually a last resort to get some extra cash for
your stuff before you throw it away or donate it, so keep everything
reasonably priced. For instruments, furniture, and anything else over
$100, try selling it on Craigslist.
If you
are cleaning out your home with plans of a yard sale, you will
quickly find that not everything is sell-able. If you need help
getting rid of the extra junk in your home, or just need a dumpster
to store it all, call on the services of 1-866-We-Junk-It. For the
past 15 years, we have been New York’s #1 choice for dumpster rentals
and junk removal services; call us today for a free quote at
