By the way, junk can be different from the rubbish itself because being junk can include large items that are meant for disposal but can still be useful by other means like recycling. Examples of this  junk is domestic home appliances big and small like refrigerators, dryers, washing machines, stoves, old microwave ovens, flat iron, old beds and furniture, and even things that are not used in homes like old bicycles, pieces of iron rods, metal scraps and much more. So junk is more the type that most of it can be recycled, reused, or repurposed. 

Rubbish, on the other hand, although some people still  call junk generally rubbish, rubbish can be categorically classified to be waste of no longer value and meant for disposing of. So today we are going to talk about junk and also rubbish because being in the business of rubbish and junk removal in Christchurch, we deal with all kinds of waste which we pick up from different sources, dispose of at the transfer station and then sorted  by workers.   

Basic Ways on How to Get Rid of Junk and Rubbish in the Garage

The first basic step on how to get rid of junk in the garage is going through categorization. To categorize is to sort the junk according to its types. You can sort your junk into 2 major categories – for disposal and for keeping. Simply, you can separate all the things that you want someone like us to pick up then organize what’s left to keep.  

Separating certain things you want to sell, recycle, donate, or keep. For example, your old refrigerator is still in good condition and you don’t want to dump it so you put it aside along with other items that you can donate or sell while the rest of the appliances that are old and broken can be picked up by us. Next is to segregate the rubbish that you want to dispose of like used paint cans, scraps of wood, plastic covers, and other items.  

And lastly is to organize what’s left and think about how to reuse them. For example, you don’t want your old metal chairs hanging around for years inside your garage so you may want to repaint them and put them in your garden. How about the old bikes which you can upgrade and use again? You can also install hooks on the wall to hang up your tools or buy large transparent plastic boxes for the stuff you need for your car, for your DIY tools, and the like. These are only some of the ways on how to segregate and organize what would remain.   

 We know there could be a time that you’ll encounter a problem with whiteware disposal or disposal of old furniture, especially mattress disposal. So what we can suggest when it comes to how to get rid of junk in garage is taking them to  places where they can be recycled. There are a few of these places we can name – Eco Drop centers, recycling centers, and junk shops. Eco Drop centers accept appliances either broken or good. The old and broken ones go to the recycling centers and the good ones will be put up for sale.    

 Let’s say your old washing machine just sat in your garage for months and it keeps eating up space along with other good items like the old fridge, microwave ovens and dryer because you have bought the upgraded versions. So why not sell them for a cheap price using the web market platforms? Or donate them if you know of an organization that accepts second-hand items near you.     

Sometimes you don’t need to look too far when you want to get rid of good items that have been part of the clutter in your garage. Do you have an extra lawn mower that you don’t want to use anymore? How about a chainsaw now that you live in a city or an old computer table from the kids’ room? How to get rid of junk in garage can sometimes be done by phone calls. Call or message your friends if they need some of your stuff or know someone who needs these extra items. As long as these are still in good shape, someone will take them.
