If you are moving to a new location or simply need more space, then clearing away unwanted items is necessary. Many trash collection services will not haul away particular items because the things are too bulky or create pollution in landfills. When a homeowner or property manager needs to get rid of things, calling a junk removal service is the best option. This leads to our top 10 most unwanted items:
Couches are a furniture item that is bulky and heavy, making it difficult to place on the curb for a city’s trash collection service. Most people are unable to lift and carry this piece of furniture on their own. We all know everyone eventually needs to replace their old couch with a new one.
Everyone has a refrigerator in their kitchen that eventually breaks down. No one should place this appliance on a curb because children can get trapped inside. Trash collectors do not want to pick up this heavy appliance either, leading to calling a professional team to remove the object safely.
Many people choose to get rid of old bedding because they are moving or they simply purchased a new mattress and/or box spring. We see most people stashing these in their garage until they get them removed.

If you are flipping a home for resale or remodeling the one you live in, then getting rid of debris quickly is essential.

9. Cardboard Boxes
Lets face it, we all have some empty boxes stashed away somewhere in the house. These boxes can take up a lot of room depending on the size of them and the quantity. We notice most people store them in their garage or closets.
10. Yard Waste
In the Spring and Summer, people tend to clean up their yard by trimming some bushes and cutting away long branches. I challenge you to drive in a neighborhood and count how many homes you see with yard debris at the end of their driveways.
