Everyone loves a good yard sale.
That is a simple and undeniable truth here in Southern Ontario because the weather is perfect for a day of travelling around from sale to sale looking for some bargain treasures, and it is also a perfect time to drag all of your unwanted stuff out of the basement and garage, and set it up on the lawn so people can haul away your stuff, and put a few bucks in your pocket at the same time. Yard sales are probably one of the most environmentally friendly ways to clean out your home, and do some shopping.
Upcycling all of your unwanted stuff by hosting a yard sale means that you will probably have some, if not a lot of stuff left over with no takers. Sorry Aunt Polly, but nobody wanted that throw rug you gave us because honestly, it looks like something the dog coughed up. The same goes with the kiddie pool, the lay-z-boy from the 1970’s, those old snow tires, the wagon wheel card table, mother in laws commemorative figurine collection that she gives every year, the broken old washing machine and those boxes full of stuff that were left behind by the previous owners.
What this means is that at the end of the day (or weekend if you are having a huge yard sale) you have to get rid of what is left over. You can’t simply curb all of it and hope that the neighbors scavenge through it and take that ping pong table, and you can’t wait for the city to come take it away either, if they actually do take items of that size where you live. You will need to rent a roll-off disposal dumpster bin to take the rest of your stuff away.
Thankfully it is fairly simple, and you can easily order one online. Simply choose the size you want and we will bring it to your home at a time of your choosing. We can put it anywhere on a flat surface, and we will even place it on custom made wooden planks, so it doesn’t leave a mark. Then when it is full, we will take it to a local waste management recycling centre and legally get rid of the rest of your stuff.
By the end of the day you will have a completely cleaned out home, and a few bucks in your pocket which you can then spend next weekend at a……yardsale.
