5 Items Your Garbage Company Won’t Collect

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
If you live on Long Island or in New
York City, you don’t have to depend on your town collection service
to dispose of these items. 866-We-Junk it provides dumpster rentals
and junk removal services to Nassau County, Suffolk County, and the
five boroughs. Call us for a free quote at 866-935-8654, or contact us online.

amounts of waste? Getting rid of this junk is something you will have
to consider, and most homeowners are left with two options: rent a
dumpster or hire a junk removal service.

factors such as the type of project, the kind of waste being
disposed, your budget, and personal preferences. Both options offer
their own distinct advantages and disadvantages, which we will cover
in this article.

How to Get Rid of Old Furniture and Appliances

Do you
have an old couch, stove, or refrigerator that you no longer have a
need for? Large items such as these can take up a lot of precious
space in your home, so most people want to get rid of them as soon as
they can.
you can’t fit a large appliance or piece of furniture in your garbage
can, and most town collection services are not willing to pick these
items up. So what can you do?

Donate It

If your
sofa isn’t torn to shreds, or your washing machine is still in
working condition, consider donating it to a local charity or
Goodwill. Not only are you freeing up space in your home and getting
rid of an unwanted item, you are helping those in need in your local

Hire a Professional

appliances and furniture can weigh several hundreds of pounds, and we
are not all physically equipped to be able to move these on our own.
Luckily, professional services exist to lift the burden off your
shoulders. For example, 1-866-We-Junk-It will come to your home,
remove any of your unwanted items for you, and take care of disposing
them properly.

Throw It Away Yourself

If you
don’t want to donate your furniture or hire a professional service,
you will be tasked with getting rid of it yourself. This isn’t as
easy as it sounds. Take refrigerators for example: you can’t just
throw one in the bed of your truck, drive to your local landfill, and
dump it. They contain liquid refrigerants such as freon that are
harmful to the environment, so they must be properly drained before
anything is done. If you plan on taking the DIY approach, make sure
you know what you are doing to avoid potentially breaking the law.

removal services and dumpster rentals to New York City and Long
Island. If you have old furniture, appliances, or anything else that

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.
