It’s sometimes a real mystery how we can acquire so much junk over time, and if you’ve woken up one morning to suddenly realize that your home or property is a lot more cluttered than it should be, you’re not alone. But realizing you have too many junk items is different from finding proper ways to get rid of them, and if you don’t have much of a clue when it comes to how you can do away with the junk on your premises, you may be happy to know that you have more than a few options. So here’s a look at the top ways you can get rid of junk in your home or property. 

  • Sell the junk 

It may already be obvious, but there’s more than one way you can sell the junk items you have. Of course, you can always have a yard sale, but you can also sell various items online. One man’s junk may be another man’s treasure, and we all know this. If you are looking to sell various items on the web, you can go on Craigslist, but you can use other apps and sites. One site is Poshmark, but you can also go to ThredUp if you would like to sell old clothes, accessories, and shoes, particularly if they are branded. For electronics, you can go on Gazelle and other marketplaces online, such as Letgo and OfferUp. Have high-quality photographs of the items and come up with a good description. 

  • Recycle 

If the junk items you have on your property are not worth selling, your best bet would be to hire a junk removal company so they can take care of hauling it away for you and recycling them if possible. The service should have the right equipment, tools, and manpower, and they could be very convenient if you have bulky items or a lot of junk you need to remove. In addition, your junk removal partner can help with recycling, especially with glass, foam, fibers, wood, and metal, as confirmed by junk removal Canton professionals like Evergreen, and these materials are often found in old furniture and mattresses, electronics, and various appliances. 

  • Donate

If you have items that you think are worth donating, you can place them in drop boxes in most cities, but you also have the option of donating to specific charities. Goodwill is a good charity where you can donate gently-used items. The Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity are other charities that know how to use old appliances, furniture, electronics, clothing, and even gym or sports equipment. If your items are too large and cannot fit into a charity dropbox, you can take them to the local center of your chosen charity and find out where you can do this by calling them or looking at their website. 

  • Give it away 

You can also give it away, and students in college or university will always need something – be it a bed, a sofa, an old computer, and so on. As long as the item works and is free, they wouldn’t hesitate to acquire it. So if you live near a college campus, hang flyers around and wait until someone contacts you for the items they are interested in.
