Spring has arrived!

The mercury is rising, the birds are chirping... there is no doubt: spring is indeed among us! And who says “spring” also says “cleaning”! Indeed, it is time to get rid of items that no longer serve you. Recybac therefore presents some tips that will allow you to easily get rid of your unnecessary stock.

Sell them!

If you have free time and the items you want to get rid of are in good condition, you can always sell them. Certain items, such as antiques, children's toys and some electronic products, are very popular at garage sales. Check with your municipality to find out the regulations regarding this type of business. For example, in Montreal, we cannot make more than two sales per year per land. In addition, the maximum duration of the sale is set at three days. Finally, the merchandise must not be displayed in the street.

If you're not interested in garage sales, you can always sell your items online. The sites Kijiji And eBay are perfect for this exercise: take a photo of everything you want to sell, write a description and publish your ads. This way, you will sell everything you want without spending long hours in front of your house.

Donate them to charity!

If some of your junk items don't sell, you can also donate them to charity. Furniture and household appliances are particularly popular with these organizations. Used clothing can also be donated.

Recycle them!

If you can't find a buyer for your bulky items, you can easily recycle them by renting a container. By choosing this option, Recybac will come and bring a container to your home. All you have to do is throw in everything you no longer need and our team will take care of transporting the container and its contents to the nearest ecocenter. This way you avoid the costly and tedious rental of the truck. Plus, you don't have to sort the items yourself so that they can be recycled properly.

Are you doing a big clean this spring? Call Recybac today to find out our schedule and prices. Depending on the nature of your work, we will help you choose the container best suited to all your needs.
