In the U.S. the average homeowner moves every six-to-seven years. That means their homes are vacated for any number of reasons. And they will all need an estate cleanout.
Everyone finds themselves needing to get rid of junk once in a while. And most everyone makes the efforts to properly recycle. But not everyone realizes that the two actions can be the same thing!

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?

One of the realities of life is the accumulation of things. Whether it's simply an growing amount of clothes, shoes, and other personal belongings, or larger household items like furniture or sports equipment. Almost everyone finds themselves having to deal with excess junk at some point.
Now that the holidays are behind us and we are into a new year, there are tons of new e-waste to dispose of. But it's not as simple as throwing it in the trash.
Long gone are the days when we could simply take our old appliances, televisions, and electronic gadgets and put them in the garbage can or dumpster. In fact, in most places today this approach isn't even legal. If you've ever tried to properly dispose of an old TV or CRT computer monitor, for example, you know this can be difficult.
