If you’re wondering what to do with items from a deceased estate, you’re not alone. The passing away of a loved one can be an incredibly difficult time and the process of sorting through their possessions can quickly become overwhelming. You have a few different options when it comes to removing items from the property. Read on to discover how to go about it and why a professional rubbish removal company may be the best option.
Decide Which Items to Keep
One of the biggest tasks is sorting through the possessions and deciding which ones you want to keep and which ones need to be removed. Items that hold significant or sentimental value are ones that you want to hold on to and can be put aside for safe-keeping. The rest are items that can be sold, recycled, donated or taken to the tip.
Sell Unwanted Items and Dispose of the Rest
If you have valuable items that are in good condition, you may wish to sell them. A garage sale is a great way for people to remove items off the property without the need for postage. If you have items leftover that need to be disposed of, a skip bin is one option. Place the bin on your property and fill it up with items so that it can be taken away at the scheduled time. If you own a truck or ute, you can also take the items to the tip yourself.
Donate or Recycle What You Can
It’s always best to minimise landfill waste by donating or recycling items. Take what you can to a recycling centre or drop them off to a local charity shop. This can include furniture, couches, desks, bookcases, appliances and more.
