New Year’s decluttering tips

  1. Set defined goals: Decluttering a home means different things to different people. Ask yourself what you are trying to achieve, such as more efficient handling of paper clutter, a more organized wardrobe, more free space in your home, etc.
  2. Break down goals into projects: Decluttering your wardrobe may seem overwhelming, but when you think of it as multiple small projects you can do one at a time, it becomes easier to tackle. Here’s an example. Put the contents of one dresser drawer or one type of clothing (like sweaters or pants) in your closet on the bed. Set a timer for 15 minutes. In that time, sort and purge. Once the timer has gone off, put what’s being kept neatly away and set the rest aside for trash or donation. Keep doing these small projects and you’ll see better, longer lasting results than trying to do it all at once.
  3. Start with holiday supplies: It will soon be time to put away holiday decorations, wrapping paper, and other supplies away until November. Now is a great time to get rid of things you no longer like or need, sort like with like, and put it all away neatly.
  4. Keep cleaning and organizing tools handy: Decluttering is also a great time for cleaning. For example, when organizing your wardrobe, clean the drawers and shelves. By having all your cleaning supplies in a portable container like a tote or a basket, you can do it quickly and easily.

Choosing the rightdumpster for New Year’s decluttering project

Below, you will find a comprehensive list of our residential dumpster sizes. This will give you a better understanding of the options available and help you determine the most suitable one for your project.

10-yard dumpster – Our smallest available dumpster for rent is the 10-yard size. It stands at 3 feet tall, spans 8 feet wide, and extends 12 feet in length. With an average capacity equal to that of four pickup trucks, it is suitable for cleaning projects concentrated in a single area like a basement or attic.

12-yard dumpster – If you’re looking to clear out cluttered spaces like your basement and attic, consider using this dumpster. Measuring 3 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 12 feet long, it has the capacity to hold approximately the same amount of waste as five pickup trucks.

15-yard dumpster – Does your decluttering project entail handling furniture and other large items? The dumpster measures 4 feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 14 feet in length, providing a capacity equivalent to approximately six pickup trucks.

20-yard and 20-long dumpsters – As the decluttering becomes more involved, the size of the dumpster you need increases. If your kids are outgrowing their furniture and have many unused toys, you might require a larger dumpster. Both dumpsters can accommodate approximately eight pickup trucks’ worth of materials. Your choice should be based on the specific requirements of your project and the available space for the dumpster.

The 20-yard dumpster has dimensions of 5½ feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 14 feet in length. However, for those who prefer a shorter height, there is also a 20-yard dumpster measuring 4 feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 23 feet in length.

It’s especially useful when dealing with situations like the passing or relocation of an elderly relative, or when preparing to downsize and sell your home in the future. With dimensions of 7½ feet in height, 8 feet in width, and 23 feet in length, it offers the largest size available for rent.
