Rent a roll off dumpster

Many local waste disposal companies offer dumpster bin services. These dumpsters will be delivered to your home and most likely be put in your driveway. They come in a lot of different sizes, so you should estimate how much junk you will be getting rid of and plan accordingly. As your movers are transferring things to their truck, you can be getting rid of old things, or just tell your mover what needs to go. Once you’re ready to move out, give the waste disposal company a call and they’ll handle the rest!

Take them to the dump

If you have a pickup truck or trailer, it may be more affordable for you to take your items to the dump yourself rather than hiring a waste disposal company. It should be noted that not everything can simply be left at the curb for trash pickup, thrown in a dumpster, or taken to the dump. Things like paint, batteries, items that contain mercury, and other chemicals cannot be disposed of at a dump or in the trash. If you have any of these items, you should check online for a local recycling facility that will accept them. Companies like Lowe’s or Home Depot will often take your old paint or varnish.

Talk to a neighbor

If you’re having trouble getting rid of something, you can always ask your neighbors if they may have need of it. If you have fitness equipment, a used bike, or anything large that may be costly to dispose of, why not see if a neighbor may want it? It’ll save you the hassle and it’s a great way to get some extra use out of your items.
