Summertime Recycling Tips for Mobile, Alabama

One of the biggest challenges when selecting a dumpster rental size is knowing how much waste you are going to have in the first place. It is a good idea to eliminate as much stuff as possible before renting a roll away dumpster to get rid of the remaining waste.

Sell, Donate, and Give Away

Anything that is gently used, or even well-used but still in working condition, can be sold via online venues such as Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace locally, and eBay or any number of other venues online.

Giving away unwanted items can be a simple as moving it to the curb and putting a sign on it, or advertising it on Craigslist, Facebook, or on the Mobile Freecycle site.
