What to Donate Instead of Junk

Spring cleaning can often lead to a variety of junk ending up landfills. It can often be easier to simply throw out items rather than properly sort them and put them into donation bins. As professional junk removal experts, we do our best to properly sort any of the junk that we remove from properties so that we can divert waste from landfills. If you’re going to be tossing items out of your home and you want to speed up the process of sorting, it’s important to know what is best for donation instead of a landfill. Here is a good list of what to donate instead of junk when going about your next project or cleaning!


If you are removing clothing from your property it could be a much better idea for you to consider the option of donating the majority of your clothing to a local charity. Much of the clothing that we remove from properties we donate to local charities. Apart from undergarments, almost all clothing can be an excellent option for donation.


Lightly used appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, ovens and more can all have a second life outside of a junkyard or landfill. If these items are still working, we can work to donate them to charitable groups in the community so that they can be rehoused for families that truly need them.


Old couches, bedroom sets and desks are items that are especially useful for donations. We work with a number of local organizations that can take gently used furniture and resell it for charitable donations to their cause.
