Mattress Removal

Are you having a hard time getting rid of an old mattress?

We are told to replace our mattresses every 7-10 years, depending on how well it’s holding up, how comfortable it is, etc. That means you will go through quite a few mattresses throughout your lifetime. However, when you are ready to get rid of a mattress, it can be frustrating trying to find a way to actually dispose of it! Mattresses are not the easiest items to transport, and many people just don’t have a vehicle large enough to get the job done. Additionally, thrift stores have stopped accepting mattresses as a general rule, and obviously, a mattress isn’t going to fit in your trash can; so, traditional options are out.

Spring Cleaning Checklist

It’s that time of year again for spring cleaning, but what about spring decluttering?

With spring right around the corner, a lot of people will be beginning their spring cleaning. While you may be focused on deep cleaning your kitchen appliances, your bathroom walls, and bedroom carpets, you shouldn’t forget about decluttering. Whether it’s decluttering your teenage son’s bedroom or that hall closet everyone seems to throw stuff in, it’s time to get rid of some stuff.

To get started with decluttering, try sorting items into one of these 3 groups:

  • Keep- Items that are used periodically or daily.
  • Sell or donate- Items that are not used any longer, but still have a few years left in them.
  • Throw away- Items that are not used any longer because they are broken or have seen their days.

To help you have a better understanding of what to throw away, here is a list of items that may be time to say ‘goodbye’ to :

  • Appliances that don’t work anymore (Blenders, toasters, vacuums, freezers, etc.)
  • Excess rags you don’t use
  • Extra bath towels that are just taking up cupboard space
  • Expired products (Medicine, cleaning products, beauty products, etc.)
  • Plastic grocery bags
  • Old (or new) clothes you don’t wear
  • Unread books
  • Unused cookbooks
  • Old magazines
  • DVDs, CDs, and VHS tapes
  • Unused cables, phone chargers, and wires
  • Untouched office supplies
  • Old toys (Inside and outside)
  • Pots and pans that have been ruined or haven’t been touched in a year
  • Unused paper plates, napkins, plastic utensils, etc.
  • Old and worn out board games

How to Properly Dispose of Batteries

From double A’s to cars there are regulations on how to dispose of batteries, do you know what they are? 

These days, batteries are used in just about everything, because of this it is crucial that you know and understand the proper techniques to dispose of batteries. From children’s toys to cars and phones, batteries are a must have in today’s society. While batteries are used for several devices and gadgets, they aren’t all the same. Depending on what they are used for, batteries come in all shapes, sizes, and types; and not all of these batteries are toxic or spillable, but each must be disposed of according to their type.

The general rules to dispose of batteries are as follows:

  • Alkaline Batteries: Depending on your local waste regulations, alkaline batteries can simply be thrown away or recycled.
  • Car Batteries: Because they contain lead acid, car batteries should be sent to a hazardous waste collection site or an auto parts retailer.
  • Rechargeable Batteries: Rechargeable batteries contain nickel and cadmium, so they must be sent to a hazardous waste collection site, a recycling facility, or an electronics retailer that recycles batteries.
  • Lithium Polymer Batteries: Discharge these batteries down to 0 volt, then after cutting the discharge lead, twist the voltage and ground wires together to secure that there is no charge in the pack.
  • Lithium-ion Batteries: Non-spillable and also non-toxic, but do have recycled uses. Through high temperature metal reclamation, Lithium-ion batteries are recycled and reused in many new products. 

To dispose of batteries improperly may result in explosions and the release of toxic chemicals into the air, but even though some don’t have these dangerous hazards, they still have a big impact in the making of new products when recycled. To ensure that chemical hazards do not occur, make sure to properly dispose of your dead or unnecessary batteries, or give us a call and we’ll come pick them up and properly dispose of each type for you.

Is your swing set getting old?

  • One of the jobs we did this week was to remove an old, rickety swing set and play house.  Swing set removal can be tricky… It looked like it had been well-loved over the years, but it was now ready to retire.   I can imagine that when the play house and swing set combo first arrived, it was greeted with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm as the pieces were laid out, parts assembled, and the structure took shape.   However, over time, sunshine, use, and mother nature took a toll on the wood, plastic, and other parts.  What was once a source of fun had become an eyesore and serious splinter-risk!  Taking apart the structure in the same way it was assembled would be an all-day endeavor.   Thankfully, we carry a saw in the truck and were able to cut apart the structure in a very short time.  The swing set and play house came down quickly and we gathered up all of the pieces to haul it away.   The eyesore is gone and the yard space increased immediately.

Do you have an old playhouse, trampoline, shed, hot tub, swing set or other bulky item that you need to go away?    We can make it happen!

For any of these services, call Garbage Guy:

  • Swing set removal
  • Hot tub removal
  • Shed removal
  • Play house removal
  • Trampoline removal
  • Bulk Trash removal
  • Junk removal of all sorts
