How to get rid of your junk properly

Posted by Jennifer Wilson on November 15th, 2019

With all due respect to Nike, getting rid of stuff you no longer want cluttering your residential or commercial property is not as simple as “Just Junk It.” In these environmentally crazy times, when the Canadian Green Party actually earned three seats in the federal government and even flat-earthers believe we need to do something to protect the planet, it’s clear people are looking for other options than just creating enormous landfills full of unwanted junk. In truth, there are really four excellent options you can choose for your junk removal Toronto.

Sell It, Share It, Recycle It – or Junk the Garbage out

You might not be cut out to be a big-money sales rep, but it’s amazing how quickly your junk can be turned into cash by people who love to buy stuff. Before you consider junk removal cost options, consider putting an add on eBay, Kijiji, Facebook, LetGo or any of the other buy and sell sites. People will actually come to your home, cash in hand, and willingly take away your junk. Of course, garage sales are always an option – but then you have to set them up, tear them down, market them, waste an entire Saturday working them and then hope the weather cooperates. When you sell online, it’s the most affordable junk removal option: it costs you nothing, and you wind up with cash in your pocket.

Sharing your junk in the form of a charitable donation is a second option. Of course, companies like Goodwill, Value Village and the Salvation Army hope that you’re donating more than junk to them; however, one person’s junk is another person’s treasure, and nowhere is that truer than at companies that survive on such charitable donations. From clothes to kitchen wares to household electronics to spoon racks and knick knacks, you’ll find these companies more than willing to accept carloads of used goods they can sell to help sustain their programs. You get rid of your junk – and you get to feel good about yourself at the same time. That’s a big win/win. The third option is recycling your junk. Unwanted materials like old paints and solvents should never be tossed, but instead taken to proper recycling facilities. Recycling your old electronics, appliances and even cellphones helps keep recyclable metals and other materials out of landfills, which helps the local environment. When none of those three options seem viable, you’re left with the only option: junk stuff with Junk Out.
