Of course instead of contacting companies individually you can also work with a junk removal company, like Fire Dawgs, who will pick up everything and distribute accordingly taking a majority of the legwork out from under you. Fire Dawgs makes sure items that can be recycled are recycled, items that can be donated are donated and then items that need to just be disposed of are disposed of. The only items a junk removal company cannot take off your hands are those that are hazardous or toxic. These items must be taken to a proper collection facility by the customer, like the Tox Dump mentioned above.
