In just nine days, winter officially ends. With the new season, spring cleaning frenzy hits many a Havasu household. It’s a great time to take stock in what you own and get rid of the stuff you never use anymore. Once you determine which items can continue living in your home and which need to seek refuge elsewhere, how do you get rid of your extra stuff? Read on to find out about a few spring cleaning junk removal options for your Lake Havasu home.
Junk Removal Options
Children outgrow their clothing and shoes well before they should be tossed in the trash. Other kids could benefit from this. Salvation Army, Goodwill, St Vincent De Paul, Wags to Riches, and the Hospice of Havasu Resale Store all accept donations of gently used clothing, accessories, furniture, housewares, toys, and other items. Some of these companies also arrange for a dedicated pick-up from your house for larger items if needed.
Host a Yard Sale
Another junk removal option that also puts a little money in your pocket is a yard sale. In fact, you might want to talk with your neighbors to set up a specific weekend where you all host yard sales at the same time. This could bring more people to your yard sale than just doing it yourself.
Hire a Pro
If you own a lot of unusable junk, you may want to hire a junk removal company to haul it away. This would be perfect for all of the broken toys, tools, and other equipment that you stuffed into a storage shed or the garage. Dynamite Dumpsters, HavaDump, and All-Haul It and More remove all the trash and debris from your Lake Havasu home for you. Other places deliver dumpsters to your house. Once you fill them up, call the company to come pick up the dumpster and they’ll haul it off for you. While not great for just an item or two, you should consider them for larger hauls.
Post on Nextdoor or Facebook Marketplace
As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. If you only have a couple of items you wish to part with, post on Nextdoor or Facebook Marketplace. These public forums allow you to advertise your items for free to your local community. Besides, it’s simple, free junk removal for you. And you could make a little bit of pocket change in the process.
Arrange for a Special Trash Pick-Up
Finally, large items like old refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers, couches, etc may be eligible for a special curbside pick-up from your trash company. Contact Republic Services to see about scheduling a pick-up when you’re ready. They also offer residential dumpster services if you’ve got more than enough to fit in your regular weekly refuse bin.
Which service works best for you depends entirely upon the size of your junk removal and the condition of said “junk”. It’s nice to make money when you can. But, if the job and stuff in question are too much to handle by yourself, hiring a service or procuring a dumpster might be the best course of action. Prepare for your spring cleaning right now. Not only will you clear up your home but you’ll also free up your mind for whatever’s next in your life.
