“When my aunt made the decision to move into assisted living, I knew it was going to be my job to get her house ready for sale.” Dale shook his head. “What I didn’t know is what a large job this was going to be. I don’t want to make any kind of impression that my aunt was a hoarder, but she was in that house in New Canaan for sixty-three years. There was a lot of stuff!”
Large Scale Clean Ups: Get Help, Have a Plan, Get a Dumpster Delivered
To keep large scale clean up jobs from being overwhelming, lifestyle experts agree: have a plan, get help, and get a dumpster. The plan is fairly simple: some items are going to be kept, some are going to be sold or donated, and the rest needs to be disposed of. Generally, heirlooms and precious items are kept by the family. Valuable items, including electronics, collectibles and so on, are often sold. These funds can be used by the senior to transition into their new living space, or in some other way that’s appropriate to the situation. Then there are the items that need to be disposed of.
That’s where we come in. Because we’ve been providing trash removal services in the New Canaan CT area for so long, we have a wide range of dumpsters and rolling trash containers available for rental. Residential dumpsters are available in 4, 6, 10, 20 and 30 cubic yard size.
Why are dumpsters ideal for large scale clean ups? Frankly, lots of times when someone is cleaning out a house or an entire estate, there are many large, cumbersome objects that won’t necessarily practically fit in a trash bag or rolling container. It’s a more efficient process to simply throw everything in the dumpster – you’ll get your clean out accomplished much faster.
