When you have piles of junk at home, you probably thought of cleaning and getting rid of those unusable items. Since no one wants to live with junk, your eagerness to wipe out every single trash in your home becomes stronger. 

Junk comes in many shapes and sizes. From a stack of old newspaper in your garage, piles of clothes that never get worn, useless tools that clutter your kitchen drawers, to the garage itself. Whatever it may be, there is a way of taking it away. Of course, it all varies depending on what you try to get rid of: removal of household waste, yard waste, regular trash or renovation waste.

Moreover, if you want to set out your junk in the curb for collection, you’ll think that you’re adding unnecessary trash in the overflowing landfills of Australia. But it doesn’t have to be that way the next time you gather your junk. You can try these 7 responsible ways for removing the unwanted stuff from your home.

Flexing Creativity

Being creative gives homeowners the chance to show off their new ideas and new ways of solving their junk problems. By being crafty to junks, you can turn the unnecessary items in your home to a treasure-like piece. Whatever trash you have at home as long as you never run out of ideas, you can responsibly get rid of your junks.

Creativity doesn’t mean you need to have the skills of a professional artist nor being a handyman. You just have to arrange or transform your junk in a way that is not an eyesore inside your home. For instance, you can turn your old bath towels to usable small rags or your bedsheets to dog’s bed. If you want to have an aesthetic impact, you can do DIY designs. 

Donating Junks

You might have bags, shoes, clothes or toys that are sitting for a long time in your home. Donating your junks might be a big help to someone who needs it most. So if your old items are still usable, you can visit your donation box on the streets. 

For large items that don’t fit in the donation box like sofas, appliances etc., you’ll have to bring them to the nearest charity’s donation drop-off centre. By donating, you will feel good knowing that you are supporting people in your neighbourhood and keeping your junk out of the landfill.

Swapping Items

You can also try inviting your friends and neighbours to bring their item that they no longer want. To avoid gathering another junk, you can ask them to bring the specific things that you also need. Not only can you have the items that you need the most, but you can also get to hang out with them at the same time. By doing this strategy, you can place all your junks outside and let them take away what they want. No one goes home, empty-handed in your neighbourhood.

Sell Your Junks

If you want to sell your old but still usable items, a garage sale is a good option. You can inform your neighbourhood a week in advance up to the sale day itself that you will be having a garage sale. Price your items and sell them. In that way, you can reduce your accumulated junk without throwing it to trash bins or sending it to landfills.

Moreover, you can try selling your old items online. You can use websites, apps or social media platforms to sell your unwanted stuff. With the high-quality photos of your items and a detailed description, you’re more likely to have some luck making money out of your old stuff. 

Send it to Recycling Companies

Aside from the ways mentioned above, recycling is also one of the best strategies to get rid of your junks at home. Recycling conserves materials, lessens the need to throw it to landfill and incineration, minimises pollution, and helps make the environment more attractive. 

Therefore, if you have metal, woods, fibres, foam, glass, furniture or appliances, you can send it to recycling companies to be useful. You can contact your local council or visit your council’s website to know where to drop your recyclable materials. 

Give Your Old Stuffs Away

If you’re aiming to get rid of your usable junk, the quickest and simplest way to remove anything you don’t want is to place your items with a “free” sign outside. Even if there are items left unpicked, it still pays off your decluttering efforts. Furthermore, your belongings will hopefully go to someone who wants them more than you do — or at least, a happy home where your old stuff starts another life.

You can also give your items to your family or friends that have interests in your junk since most of the People who know you well and trust you are more likely to take your used stuff off your hands. In that way, you can easily remove your stacks of unwanted things.

    You guys are great, I’ll happily recommend you. I just wished I had found you sooner. I felt your price was a little too low when you quoted… so I didn’t think you would do such a good job… well done for proving me wrong.
