3 Ways To Clean Up After A Move

Moving to a new home can be exhilarating and frustrating all at the same time. It takes a lot work to get everything moved over to your new place. After moving everything, you are left with a lot of items that need to go in the trash. Here are three ways to clean up after moving.

Rent a Dumpster

If you are planning to sell your old house, then you want to get it cleaned up as soon as possible. This type of clean up may take a little while. You have collected items for years that you never got around to throwing away. Some items cannot be picked up by your local garbage men.

If you need to remove debris  from your yard, then you need to contact a dumpster rental company. Dumpster rental companies offer roll off containers and dumpsters in a variety of sizes. A dumpster allows you to work fast and to remove more items at one time. 

Ask Community Groups for Help

There are community groups in some cities that help the elderly to clean up their yard. These groups are available in lower income neighborhoods. The mission is to empower the young people and to encourage them to keep their neighborhoods clean.

It helps to see what is available in your community.  If you want to go this route, then you should contact the group and ask about their clean up projects. You should also donate time or money if the group decides to help.

Ask Your Loved Ones for Help

If you are low on money and do not have a lot of manpower, then you can ask your family and friends for help. It is a good idea to include someone with a truck. You will have to take several loads to your local landfill. The landfill also charges a fee for you dumping items at their facility. 

If you are going to do a family clean up, then you need to be good at organizing. Everyone should have a specific job. It prevents people from goofing and dragging out the clean up. 

Most families want to move as soon as possible. This is possible if you organize the entire move. You should have a plan for moving debris from inside and outside of your home. The main goal is to have your old property clean by the time you are ready to move into your new house.
