Household Appliance and Furniture Disposal
“This Old House” is the appropriate phrase for what lies beneath the shiny exterior of many homes across the country. Although people spend a ton of time keeping their lawn neatly manicured, they often neglect what’s inside (this not only applies to interior design and upkeep, but the actual furniture and appliances that make a major difference in how a home looks and feels)
I’d like to list several standard pieces of furniture and household appliances that often are left neglected in homes; old items that are simply collecting dust and need to be hauled away.
Refrigerator Disposal – The refrigerator is the energy source of your home and family, providing food and drink to power you through the days. There have been a ton of improvements in refrigerator technology over the past several years, from bigger storage spaces to incredible features that notify you when your food is getting old and moldy. It’s probably about time to haul out your old refrigerator and buy a new one to feed your family.
Television Disposal – The good old days of large, boxy television sets are all but said and done. The new generation of TVs are flat, high definition, internet connected, and beautiful to watch. It’s easy enough to bring home a light-weight flat screen TV and mount it on the wall, however, getting rid of that old boxy TV set is quite a task. Not only are old televisions incredibly heavy, but they also provide very little in the way of handholds to carry them out the door.
Couch Disposal – Ah, the old family couch: it’s almost like a part of the family as it absorbs countless hours of sitting and punishment over the years. Even though it’s hard to part with an old couch, getting a new one will give any living room a completely different look and feel. Once again, getting that old couch out and the new one in is harder said than done. Couches often need to be broken into multiple sections before they can be hauled out of the home and to the proper recycling facility.
Mattress Disposal – A mattress might be considered the most important item in your home; after all you do spend nearly a third of your life sleeping on one. After a while, you almost forget that your bed is actually made up of a mattress that’s been around for any number of years. There is a ton of advertising about buying new high-tech mattresses that do anything from helping your back pain to preventing you from spilling your glass of wine. There isn’t nearly as much marketing on how to actually get rid of your old mattress. Hauling out that old clunky mattress can be quite a hassle, especially if you have to fit it into your new two-door convertible.
