“As you look at hauling companies, especially if you’re dealing with a hoarder who will not throw things out but may consent to giving to charity/recycling, y’all might be interested to know that there is a new breed of hauling business. Some companies are willing to do a hybrid run to a charity AND to the dump. Here in the DC area, there is a local company called Junk in The Trunk.
“They’re billing themselves as an environmentally friendly trash hauler—they’ll come clean out a garage and take furniture to Salvation Army, building materials and tools to the home improvement thrift store where I work, and computers to an electronics recycler.”
