Spring brings with itself a season of cleaning and decluttering. You clear out your old clothes, your extra stuff and broken equipment and finally relax. But cleaning accumulates a lot of junk for disposal which can get quite costly if you hire a junk removal service. Not to worry as there are many DIY tips to remove your junk.

Recyclable items such as paper, metal, cardboard, plastics and aluminum can be recycled in different companies.
