Do you have a bunch of old junk hanging around that you don’t need, but don’t know
what to do with? Tossing it out into the waste is often not the best option – not only can
it be environmentally unsound, but it can also be difficult or pricey to get certain items
removed by trash services. At Capital Junk, we offer a junk removal service for
Kitchener/Waterloo residents who need a little help finding a better way to clear out the
clutter. Here are five ways that you can reduce the amount of junk in your home or


There are many organizations and charities that can help other people with donated
goods. Furniture, clothing, household items, and even larger items like cars, can all be
donated to help a less fortunate person or family. In some cases, charitable donations
can be a tax benefit as well. At Capital Junk, we sort all loads that we receive and
donate a large portion of the items as we can.


Can you repurpose any of the items that have been collecting dust in your home? This
can be a great way to help fill a need elsewhere without buying more stuff to put in your
home. Finding ways to reuse an old item for a new purpose can also be a lot of fun!


One option that many people pursue is using a storage facility. If the “junk” piled up in
your space is sentimental, valuable, or something that you will definitely need in the
future, then storage can be the best option. For a relatively low price, you can keep your
items safe for future use, and it’ll be easily accessible should you ever need anything
from your storage unit.

Online Marketplaces

Want to get rid of junk and make a few extra dollars? One thing to try is to offer items for
sale or trade on online marketplaces. Ebay and Craigslist are the two most common,
but don’t rule out Facebook swap groups or local area groups on other social media
platforms. You may be able to find an easy way to get rid of plenty of items while
making some cash. That’s a win-win for everyone, because the new owners are also
gaining something they need.
