Fall Cleanup

The chill in the air signals more than just the arrival of pumpkin spice everything; it’s a wake-up call to tackle your fall cleanup. Let’s go beyond the usual advice of raking leaves and dig into the essentials that will set you up for a serene and clutter-free fall season.

Yes, leaves will fall, and yes, they need to go. But your yard is also home to broken planters, deteriorating garden decorations, and outgrown kids’ toys that spent the summer outside. Consider yard waste removal not just for organic matter, but for all seasonal items that have seen better days.

Don’t overlook this outdoor storage space. Take an inventory of your tools. Rusty, broken, or otherwise unusable items should be on your junk removal list.

Fall marks the transition from summer to winter gear. While storing away your summer clothing, check for items that are worn out, out of style, or no longer fit. It’s also a good time to assess the condition of your winter apparel—coats, boots, gloves—and remove those that won’t make it through another season.

Summer sports gear like baseball gloves, frisbees, or golf clubs may need to be retired. Similarly, before you bring out the winter sports gear, ensure everything is in working order, or else add it to your junk pile.

Your car will thank you for a clean, organized space to reside in during the winter months. This is the time to dispose of old paint cans, expired chemicals, and other hazardous items that cannot be thrown in with regular garbage.

Old tires, broken parts, and outdated car care products often get pushed to the back of the garage. These should be properly disposed of to make room for winter car essentials like antifreeze and windshield washer fluid.

We all have that one box we move from place to place, promising ourselves we’ll sort it “one day.” Make this the season you finally tackle those forgotten realms. Broken furniture, old textbooks, and outdated electronics should be part of your fall junk removal efforts.

It’s tough, but necessary. If you’ve been holding onto items for sentimental reasons but never actually look at or use them, it may be time to take photos for memories and let the physical items go.

Clear out old decorations that are broken or you haven’t used in years. Make room for new festive gear by donating or discarding what you no longer need. This also applies to kitchenware; get rid of those chipped plates and bent forks before the holiday hosting begins.

Chances are your kids will get new toys during the holiday season. Prepare by sorting through their current collection and donating or tossing anything that’s broken or no longer age-appropriate.

We all have that drawer of old phones, tangled chargers, and outdated tech gadgets. Many junk removal companies, like Freedom Junk Hauling and Demolition, offer e-waste recycling. It’s an eco-friendly way to declutter your space.
