Different Ways to Get Rid of Unwanted Items

Fall cleaning is upon us! Its time to get rid of that junk that's been sitting in your garage or basement and put that space to good use. Many times, residents are puzzled about how exactly they should go about getting rid of their junk 

At Schiebel Waste, our roll-off dumpster rental company in Methuen knows a thing or two about how to get rid of unwanted items. But before you schedule a roll-off container, here are a few alternative ideas regarding how you can get rid of your unwanted items.

Yard Sale

Gather up any furniture, clothing, home appliances and toys you and your family won't be needing in your new space and have a yard/garage sale! Make it known to friends and family that you're having a sale through word of mouth, signs at the end of your street, and by making an announcement on social media.

Make a Donation

Sometimes it's too inconvenient and time-consuming to arrange an entire yard sale. Instead, calling up a local or national charity to pick up your unwanted items is the best route to take. The Salvation Army or Red Cross will take gentle used furniture, clothing, and toys. Keep in mind that they have strict standards regarding quality items, so they may not take everything.

Give It Away

If you're feeling generous and know that friends and family members would appreciate a gift, you can simply give your items away for free. You can either arrange to drop off the items at their respective houses or have them swing by to pick things up. You can also list unwanted items on Craigslist for no fee.

Into The Dumpster

For all other items that you were unable to give away or sell, a roll-off dumpster is your best bet to get the remaining unwanted items out of the house. Our Methuen dumpster rental company is here to provide homeowners with 10, 15, or 20-yard dumpsters that are capable of fitting large sectional couches, chairs, rugs and other furniture sets. Just keep in mind that we do not take food waste in our dumpsters!

Schiebel Waste Dumpster Rental

We recommend renting a dumpster three weeks before your moving date. Our dumpsters are rented out on a two-week time frame, but if you need to tack on a few extra days after the two-week mark, there will be an additional $3 per day charge.
