For those do-it-yourselfers that still intend to get the job done on their own, Junk Angel has a few tips to keep in mind when disposing of junk:
- Pace yourself. When hauling away heavy items or large quantities of junk, it’s important to take frequent breaks to avoid exhausting yourself. Taking time to catch your breath and rehydrate can mean the difference between a clean removal and nightmarish chore. When you start to overwork yourself, you start damaging items by dropping them or hitting railings and walls–you’re also more prone to injury from improper lifting.
- Secure your items. Make sure items will not shift out of control during the hauling process. You don’t want to litter junk all over the roads or cause an accident from fallen debris during transport. Use trash bags, tape, and boxes to your advantage to minimize stress.
- Check your disposal options. Call your local trash removal service to find out what they will take from the curb. Larger appliances like refrigerators and washers are often ignored. Also, check with your local dump to find out if you can drop off your junk there. Calling ahead of time ensures that you won’t waste a trip driving to the junkyard and have to turn around with your junk still in your possession.
- Make safety a priority. Watch how you lift, wear supportive shoes and braces, and be aware of your surroundings while you haul your junk to avoid injury. The last thing that needs to be added to a days worth of hauling is a trip to the hospital.
