Too much household junk and clutter can be agonizing, but throwing everything in the garbage is not very “green.” Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can efficiently remove junk from your house and feel good while you do it. Here are a few essential tips for getting rid of household junk.
Sort Your Items
If you are making the decision to get rid of your household junk, it may be because you are overwhelmed by how many things you own or how much space all of your clutter occupies. If this is the case, organization is key. Sort your items into different boxes based on their destination. You can have one box for items that you plan to donate to charity, one for things that you want to give away to friends, and one for items that you plan to sell.
Books tend to fall into the clutter category. Many people tend to keep their finished books on a bookshelf after they have read them once, which causes them to go unused for years. There are many libraries and schools in underprivileged cities around the entire world that would be glad to receive these books, and there are several book donation services that can help you reach them.
The nice thing about getting rid of electronics like computers, cameras, and other appliances is that they are easy to recycle. Not only can their parts be reused in other pieces of technology, they can be broken down into raw materials that can be used to create countless different things. There are also recycling services that will happily take your old and unused gadgets.

Demolition projects typically result in a significant amount of leftover debris and waste. Fortunately, the leftovers do not all have to end up together in a landfill. With green demolition, a large amount of the demolished building will be reused or recycled. Rather than becoming pollution, the debris is ultimately used to make new materials. Here is an overview of how green demolition works.
Many structures that are demolished have a great deal of useful materials that can be reused for other tasks and projects. Unfortunately, all of these materials are usually thrown out. Just by taking a few extra steps, those who practice green demolition ensure that these valuable materials are preserved and reused. This keeps them away from landfills, where they simply turn into pollution. While reducing, reusing, and recycling are the staples of environmentally friendly practices, reusing is one of the easiest. The following reusable materials are commonly thrown out as debris: aluminum siding, bricks, pipes, windows, tiles, and wood floors.
There are a number of incentives to participate in green demolition. Firstly, if you recycle a large amount of the debris that your demolition project creates, you can cut costs on landfill charges. Donations of your materials can also earn you tax credits. In some areas, green demolition is actually mandatory. Unless you can prove that over half of your debris is going to be recycled or reused, you will be unable to get your permit deposit back. Whether you decide to utilize green demolition on your own or your city makes it mandatory, you will need to participate in green demolition in order for the United States Green Building Council to grant you LEED certification.

Excess junk creates clutter, and clutter creates anxiety. Fortunately, it is easy to systematically clear your house of unwanted items. Watch this video to find out how to free up space and get started on a household junk removal project.
First, survey your house and write down everything you want to get rid of and how you want to get rid of it, sorted by room. You may have some items for charity, some for a garage sale, and some that you just want to throw out. Some key items to look for are clothes that you haven’t worn in at least two years or toys that your children may have outgrown. Be sure to pull out all of your drawers, boxes, and anything with a lid on it so you can check inside.

As the center of your household, the kitchen produces a lot of garbage. Waste management is important if you want to care for the environment, and can also help cut costs and minimize disposal and hauling efforts. There are many ways to go about managing the waste in your kitchen, most of which are easy and inexpensive. Here are some of the most efficient methods:
Composting is something a lot of homeowners don’t consider, but it’s one of the easiest ways to get rid of certain types of food matter .It’s also great for people who enjoy gardening. Since vegetables are biodegradable, leftovers can be composted to help fertilize your property’s soil. This is one of the cheapest and most practical approaches to manage waste in the kitchen.
Throwing out recyclables is inadvisable because they’ll sit in landfills when they could be reused. Be sure to sort things like paper, plastic, and glass into a separate bin for your hauling service so they can be used to make newer goods. This takes a bit of effort, but will soon become second nature and greatly contribute toward the environment’s improvement.
Install a Garbage Disposal Unit
Food disposers are attached to the drain of your kitchen sink so you can get rid of anything you don’t want to keep around or recycle. These are usually fairly affordable as far as appliances go and can greatly reduce the amount of garbage you send out to the curb.
Buy a Trash Compactor
Unlike food disposers, compactors are free-standing units that are usually set up under kitchen counters. While a bit more expensive, they’re much better at clearing out garbage. In fact, some of the larger units can compact as much as six trash bags into a single, smaller bag that can be taken out to the curb with less effort.
