Spring is a season of new beginnings and for many people this comes in the form of spring cleaning. If you only clean a few times throughout the year, spring cleaning is essentially giving your home a fresh start for the new year. However, leaving the cleaning and maintenance to one time a year will result in the inevitable buildup of junk in your home. To help alleviate the confusion of what to do with about a year’s worth of junk, here are a few tips and ideas from the Orlando junk removal specialists on what to do with common spring cleaning junk.
Recycle electronics – Used batteries and appliances and broken electronic devices can be easily recycled by taking them to a local Best Buy or checking other options listed on the Environmental Protection Agency website.
Sell the junk online – Websites like eBay and Craigslist make it easy to make some extra cash from junk you would otherwise just throw away.
Repurpose – Instead of tossing some of your junk, try being creative with it. You can take old junk and turn them into useful and decorative additions in your home.
Donate – Clothing and appliances are always welcome at non-profit organizations like the Salvation Army and Goodwill. Not only are you getting rid of the junk you don’t want, but you are also giving them to people who would love to have it.
Use it – Set unused appliances aside until you are done with the items you know you are throwing out. You just might find that you have a new use for these items.
Re-gift – Although it might sound cheap, taking unused or slightly used items and giving them to friends or family who will use it is a great way to recycle them.
Let go – Narrow down the amount of sentimental items you have collecting in your home to gain more space.
Give away – Create a game for some of the items you wish to say goodbye to with your friends or followers on Twitter to add a little excitement in getting rid of your junk.
Share it – If you have some interesting or odd finds, share them with your friends and followers on your social media outlets.
Throw it away – Basically, if it doesn’t fall into one of the categories above, it is probably a good idea to simply toss it in the trash. If you have too much, make sure to call the Orlando junk removal professionals at Junk Angel.
