What NOT To Do With Your Old Junk

Do you
have a steadily-growing collection of junk that is beginning to take
over your basement or garage? It’s time to do something about it –
just make sure it’s not one of these things.
DON’T Illegally Dump It
might be tempted to head out in the middle of the night and abandon
your stuff on the side of the road somewhere. Maybe it will be easier
than doing things the right way, but that is called “illegal dumping”, and it can lead to a serious fine and maybe even jail
DON’T Burn It
the thought of properly disposing of everything is stressing you out
a little bit. What if you just made a big pile out of your garbage,
set it on fire, and invited your friends over for a bonfire? Don’t do
that – not only are you releasing tons of toxins into the air, you
are also breaking the law.
DON’T Keep It
it is not illegal, keeping it is almost as bad of an option as the
other two. You have finally made the choice to declutter your home
and get rid of your unused junk, don’t turn back now.
So what
should you do with your stuff?
  • Sell it. Host
    a tag sale or head to online sites like eBay to get money for your
    old stuff.
  • Recycle it. Do
    you have junk that could be recycled? If so, do the green thing and
    give it a second life.
  • Donate it. If
    your stuff is still in workable condition, give it to someone in
    need. They will use it more than you will.
  • Have someone else
    take care of it.
    Too much work
    for you? Let someone else do it! Hire a professional junk remover
    and relax while they do all the work.

5 Household Products You Didn’t Know Expire

All good things must come to an end. This age-old quote is true in
just about every aspect of life, including our household products.
Nearly everything we own has an expiration date, whether we know it
or not. So before you stock up on your favorite on-sale products,
make sure that they won’t go bad before you get a chance to use them.
Here are five common household products that you didn’t know expire.
If you still have a pile of batteries leftover from your Y2K
preparation, chances are they are no longer good. From the moment
they are manufactured, batteries immediately begin losing small
amounts of energy. Your old batteries could be completely depleted by
the time you use them if you wait too long.
Many of us have bottles upon bottles of cleaning products under our
sinks – when was the last time you used some of them? According to
Money Talks News, most soaps, detergents, and other cleaning
solutions begin to lose potency after a year or two.
When you first moved into your home, you cracked open a can of paint
and coated your walls with the color of your choice. Then you sealed
that paint can back up, and never touched it again. By the time your
next renovation comes around, this paint will probably have already
gone bad.
For certain types of make-up, it doesn’t take long before they
accumulate so much bacteria that they are no longer safe to use.
Mascara is the shortest of them all, with a lifespan of three months.
Lipsticks, brushes and powders should all be replaced every 12-18
Stocking up on bottled water for the apocalypse? Better think twice.
Believe it or not, bottled water actually has an expiration date. How
is that possible? The water itself doesn’t actually go bad, but
rather the plastic bottle can begin releasing chemicals into the
water if you wait too long to drink it.
How much of this stuff do you have sitting around your house? If you
need an extra hand getting rid of your unwanted rubbish, give the
junk removal experts at 866-We-Junk-It a call. Serving all of Long
Island and New York City, we provide dumpster rentals and clean out
services to residents and businesses in need. Visit our website for

The Dangers of Hoarding

to TLC’s popular TV show, many people are now aware of the mental
disorder known as hoarding. For those of you who have never seen the
show or heard the term, hoarding is defined as, “the persistent
difficulty to discard possessions because of a perceived need to save
those with a hoarding mentality suffer from extreme anxiety at the
thought of getting rid of their items – regardless of their value.
After several weeks, months, and years, this leads to an excessive
accumulation of stuff, and it begins to take over their homes and
people find the television program entertaining and even amusing,
many don’t realize the effects that hoarding can have on a person’s
safety and health. Severe hoarding can lead to some legitimate
dangers, such as:
  • Fire hazards.
    Hoarding creates fire hazards
    in more ways than one; stored objects can be flammable, and the
    amount of clutter can block escape routes and prevent firefighters
    from finding victims.
  • Homelessness. If
    the hoarding becomes too severe, the Department of Public Health or
    a landlord can order the person out of the building. Shelters have
    also been known to ban those whose hoarding puts others at risk.
  • Risks to Children
    and Pets.
    In some cases,
    hoarding can lead to the forfeiture of children or pets, hefty
    fines, and even imprisonment. This happens when the court deems that
    a home’s living conditions are unacceptable due to the mess that
    hoarding has created.
  • Mold. Mold
    can grow anywhere moisture is present, and exposure to it can cause
    allergic reactions, headaches, nausea, and even respiratory
    infections. A hoarder could have a mold problem and not even see it
    due to the vast amounts of clutter.
  • Structural
    Depending on the
    type of objects that are hoarded, stacking too much weight could
    actually damage the structure of your home.
