Hiring movers? Pro Tip: Ask if they can put the items curbside for donation pick-up/trash if you are unable to.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

SELL (WITH PICK-UP)
Want to get items off your hands and possibly make some money from selling them?
FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE, NEXTDOOR, AND OFFERUP
Post photos of your items to Facebook Marketplace, Nextdoor, and/or Offerup and request the buyer to handle pick-up. Share your listing to secondary Facebook Groups to attract more potential buyers. Some items may go quickly, especially when offered for free.
Have things that aren’t in the best condition or can’t be reused?
FREE BULKY ITEM PICKUP
Take advantage of your city’s services and arrange for the pick-up of select bulky items. Different cities have different limits, but usually there is a certain number of items you can have picked up each week/month for free.
WASTE MANAGEMENT BAGSTER
Waste Management offers a dumpster bag, aka a “Bagster”, that can be filled manually and then arranged for removal. Leave it on the street outside your home, fill it up over a few days, and then call the folks at Waste Management to pick it up. It is 8' long by 4' wide by 2'6" tall, and can hold up to 3,300 pounds. It costs around $30 for each bag, and around $300 to remove it. This option is best if you have lots of items that you are willing to lift yourself or with some friends.
This service charges based on how full their 11x6x5ft truck gets, either a quarter, half, or full truck. What's nice about Got Junk is that it's considered "full service," as the employees go inside the home and carry items out. This option is best if there are a lot of items in need of removal that are relatively hard to move.
Trash Warrior determines the removal price based specifically on which items are being picked up. Starting at a base price of around $70, each item in need of removal will be added up to determine your total, with a mattress being close to $21, and a large desk being around $55.
