Getting your house and your property ready for the winter weather is one of the more challenging tasks for many homeowner. Especially since, in many parts of the country, this means getting for some brutal weather that brings heavy snow and long freezes.
If you've ever looked at your garage and wondered where did all that stuff come from, you're not alone. The majority of Americans have garages filled with everything except their cars. So how do you get it organized?
For most Americans, the garage is the household storage space unit. Depending on whose figures you go by, it's estimated that only 20 to 30 percent of people with garages in the United States use them to park their cars in.
You may have a number of projects waiting to be done around your house and yard. And they might create large amounts of trash and debris. So, how will you get rid of it all?
You can haul it all out yourself. If you have a truck, or access to one, you can load the trash, junk and debris and take it to the local landfill. If you have one. And then you can unload it all yourself, pay the fees, and maybe do this a number of times until the job is complete.
