Renovation Woes: Getting Rid of Old Tiles, Fixtures, and Other Junk
Renovating a home is no small feat. It requires a lot of planning, a sizable budget, and lots of preparation. It also produces quite a bit of junk. The amount of junk that is produced by a renovation project can be troublesome to dispose of.
If you are renovating any part of your home and you are unsure how to go about disposing of your junk, we have a few suggestions. Whether you need to throw away old tile, old wallpaper, scrap metal, and even old fixtures, here are some things that you can do to get rid of them:
Donate – not everything that you remove from your home when you renovate can be easily considered trash. Old kitchen cabinets, old furniture, old tiles that are not broken, and even old lighting fixtures, can be donated. Throwing out an old sink? Donate it to someone who can get some good use out of it. Old kitchen appliances that are being replaced with new ones? Donate them too.
Repurpose – another thing you can do with stuff that you remove from one part of your home because of a renovation project is to repurpose. If you are a fan of DIY and know a little about shabby-chic. Then you know exactly what we are talking about. An old door can be repurposed into a cool workshop or craft table. An old window frame can be repurposed into a unique looking bookshelf. That old bathroom sink? Why not make it into a rustic-looking birdbath?
Recycling – not everything that you remove from your home when renovating has a secondary use. If these are broken or are no longer useful, like bent steel bars and the like, your best option would be to have these recycled. Recycling is something you should always consider before thinking about throwing things away. It not only helps you get rid of junk but it also does so while saving the planet.
How to Dispose of Renovation Junk
If re-purposing or donating cannot be done with the stuff that you are removing from your home during renovation, there are a few other things you can do. Disposing of these things is often your last recourse, particularly if you are not sure what to do with them. If you are unsure where to have these things recycled or who to contact when you want to donate them, here are some things you can do and some people who can help.
Rent a dumpster
– find a dumpster rental that is ideal for your project and try to use a company that believes in donating, recycling, and repurposing before disposing. Dumpsters come in a variety of sizes, with the smallest one usually measuring around 10 cubic yards. For bigger construction projects, a 40 cubic yard dumpster can be rented. Just make sure you have enough space in your yard to accommodate these.
