Spring Is Here! Organize a Life-Changing Garage Clean-out Day for Your Neighborhood

We have all been there. We have accumulated junk in our garage and basement for a couple of years, and we find ourselves at the awkward spot between too much to throw in the trash, but not enough to justify renting a dumpster.

 

Last year the solution was easy: you closed the door on the garage and ignored it for another year. Good for you – you found some time! But you did not solve the problem.

 

Well this year what if you try a different strategy?

 

This year, go together with your neighbors to organize a neighborhood clean-out day, and utilize the Big Daddy Dumpster three-day rental option. This will create a targeted, specific window of time for getting the work done, making it easier and more fun.

 

 

Garage clean-out challenges

There are lots of challenges involved in cleaning out your garage.

 

First, some of the things in your garage don’t belong in a dumpster. For instance, you should not put flammable liquids or biohazards in the dumpster, and you likely have a few gallons or more of these items in the back corner, over there beneath the shovels.

 

Second, some of the things you need to throw away are too heavy or too bulky to include in your regular trash. You can’t put that old lawnmower frame in the trash can. You need a little more space.

 

Third, some of the things you need to lift or move are pretty heavy.  that old door you removed in the basement remodel? You can probably move it yourself, but do you want to risk your back again?

 

These and other similar problems are solved by having a neighborhood garage clean out day.

 

 

A neighborhood garage clean-out day solves these problems

First, the problem of hazardous items.

 

It feels a little wasteful to carry one or two gallons of expired paint thinner and paint to the appropriate county drop-off location. But if you join together with your neighbors, suddenly you find that you have a small truckload. Now one person, or maybe two of you, are taking the trip for the whole neighborhood. Now you are building friendships, helping others out, and really building the spirit of community.

 

Second, bulky items. When you go together with your neighbors to split the expense of a dumpster, you help everyone dispose of all their bulky items at once.

 

Third, heavy items. Good news, everyone is working outside this weekend. And you neighbors who just lifted one heavy thing and threw it in the dumpster will be glad to help you with throwing something else in. That’s just the energy of a good, productive day.
