Though winter is in full swing, spring is just around the corner. It is time to start giving some thought as to what projects you want to accomplish to give your home the fresh start it needs for the warmer weather. Once you know what chores are on your to-do list, you can rent any necessary equipment or hire any required services. 

If your spring to-do list involves ridding your home of junk, it is essential to make plans to deal with the items you want to get rid of. This prevents old, unusable items from cluttering up another space in your home, like the attic or basement. Here are a few options to help you dispose of your home's junk.

1. Haul the Junk to the Dump

One way that you can rid your property of old junk is to haul it off yourself to your local dump. Depending on where you live, the dump may charge a fee to take your items, and there may be restrictions concerning what items it will take. For example, many dumps have rules concerning what types of electronics they will accept for disposal.

A downside to hauling stuff to the dump yourself is that it adds additional time to your project. If you already have a busy schedule, adding a few more hours to a project may make it feel overwhelming. Also, to maximize your trips, you should ideally have a vehicle capable of hauling large loads.

2. Hire a Junk Removal Company

Instead of hauling your junk away, outsource the job to a junk removal company. A junk removal company will provide a truck and haul your stuff away for you. Usually, they will also load your stuff for you. 

However, the price to hire a junk removal company can be expensive, especially if you have a lot of items to get rid of. Some also find coordinating pick-ups for their junk to be cumbersome.

3. Rent a Roll Off Dumpster

A third alternative is to rent a roll off dumpster. A dumpster rental company, like the one found at, will deliver the dumpster to your home; you can then roll it to your desired location and fill it with junk as you complete your spring to-do list.

Many find that renting a roll off dumpster is a convenient choice because it permits them to start and stop a project with ease. Though you may have plans to clean out your old building in one day, sometimes life gets in the way and it takes two weekends. 

With a roll off dumpster, you don't have to worry about coordinating appointments or removing the junk yourself. Just call the dumpster rental company when you are through with the dumpster or when it is full, and the company will come get it for you.
