When you getting rid of old furniture it becomes apparent that you can't just put it all on the curb. So how do you dispose of your old furniture?
We've all seen the random sofa abandoned on the side of a back road somewhere. Not only is it unsightly, but it is probably illegal in most places. Simply tossing your old furniture someplace hoping it will be taken away by someone else is not an option.
There are times in many people's lives when they need to downsize - or simply choose to. The challenge is often deciding what to keep, what to lose, and how to get rid of junk.
There is a recent movement in the United States towards shedding material things and reducing one’s “footprint” on a number of levels. For some this can mean simply getting rid of excess belongings. For others, it can mean more than just an effort to declutter your life.
We are all used to recycling things such as aluminum cans, glass bottles and newspapers. But did you know there a number of other household items that can also be recycled?
Recycling has become a way of life for most American households. Although the practice is centuries old, it was not common in the United States until the last few decades. Many of us, in fact, can remember a time when recycling was a novel concept for most of us. All that began to change beginning in the 1970s.
The United States has historically been one of the most charitable and generous nations in the world. It is an integral part of our culture to donate to worthy causes. Now it's easier than ever before.
Granted, we are also bombarded with fundraisers, online funding drives, small children in front of our favorite grocery store with cookies. You name it, the list is almost endless. Giving, donating, and fundraising are built into the fabric of our society. But giving and donating is not a thing to be taken lightly, either.
The U.S. is awash in old electronics and old mobile phones are among the top items in this growing pile of electronic waste. But there are noble alternatives to simply tossing them in the trash!
We live in a wonderful time of incredible technology and a vast array of high-tech devices to enhance our lives. With all of this technology and devices, however, comes the problem of efficient disposal.
When people say goodbye to unwanted things, the story often ends with “free to a good home” or “to help the needy.” But what does that really look like, in real life? In the junk removal business, we get to see firsthand just how impactful and heart-warming it is to see one person’s trash become another person’s much-needed basics for starting a new life.
