There’s a Much Greener Way to Declutter Your Home

Let’s face it – we’re all guilty of accumulating too much stuff throughout our home. But taking some time to sort through and declutter on a frequent basis is important, not only for creating more open space but for also releasing any stagnant, negative energy that clutter can create. And, whether it’s your outdated furniture, old appliances, empty paint cans, or old clothes collecting dust in your closet, there’s a much greener way to declutter your home. Here’s how.

Decluttering Your Closets

With the seasons changing and the weather warming up, there’s no better time to swing open your closets and dig in to find those old, outgrown clothing that you will never wear again. But tossing your old clothes into a garbage bag means they’ll be heading right for the dump and left to pile up in a landfill. That’s why at Captial Junk, we take the time to ensure any items that you discard of are donated or recycled. So consider dropping off your clothing to a local charity or giving us a call to pick it up so we can donate it for you. That way it can stay out of a landfill and help someone who may benefit from your items.

Decluttering Your Basement

Those old computers, TVs, boxes, and other items that get placed down in the basement can leave many homeowners wondering what to actually do with them. You could place that half busted computer on the curb for someone to collect, but you may be thinking about potentially sensitive data that may still be on the hard drive. If you have any electronics, including computers that you need to discard of, our team is certified to safely destroy circuit boards and hard drives to ensure your data is safe.

Decluttering Your Garage

Afraid to step into your garage? It can be a daunting task to take on your outdoor spring cleaning, especially when there’s limited floor space to even move around. When it comes to any of your bulky items like your rusty bikes, construction debris, bits of wood and everything in between, our team will haul it away and sort through it to determine what can be recycled or donated.

And, when it comes to the garage or shed, there’s usually some hazardous materials that need to be disposed of eventually. If you have any items that are toxic, corrosive, reactive, or ignitable, these should never be poured down the drain or simply thrown into the garbage. Materials like motor oil, household chemicals, anti-freeze and even paint can cause serious damage over time to our water and environment. So we recommend contacting your local waste management services or searching for ‘take back’ facilities that will allow you to drop off certain items that can be disposed of properly.
