Fill Your Bins

After we drop off your bins, you’re free to sort through your belongings on your own time, at your own pace. Please refer to the following quick and easy guide for sorting your stuff and filling your bins. Once you’ve filled your bins, stack them together with your other large items and we’ll come and take them away for clutter removal. It’s that easy!

If you run into difficulties parting with your things, see our helpful Decluttering Guide for tips and inspiration. Or send us a message, we’re always available to help!

Clothing

Please sort your clothing into the following categories:

  • Shoes
  • Formal Dresses
  • Business Attire
  • Coats & outdoor (mitts, gloves, hats, scarves, etc)
  • General (all the rest: pants, shorts, skirts, shirts, sweaters, pyjamas, etc)
  • Damaged (ripped, holes, frayed, stained, etc)

A large bin will hold approximately: 12-18 sweaters, 15-20 pairs of pants, or 10-12 pairs of shoes (depending on the size of the items).

Electronics

Small electronics (including power cords, cables, batteries, and accessories) can be placed in a bin. If items are too big for the bins, please set aside with other large items.

Books

No need to separate books, all types can be in the same bin. A small bin will hold approximately 25-30 paperbacks or 10-12 hardcover books.

Household Items

Please sort your household items into the following categories:

  • Linens (gently used blankets, towels)
  • Kitchen supplies (pots, pans, plastic dishes, cooking accessories)
  • Glassware (dishes, glasses, vases) Please wrap fragile items.
  • CD’s & DVD’s
  • Toys
  • Miscellaneous (baskets, knick-knacks, framed artwork & picture frames, etc) Remember to remove any personal photos!

The Rest

Larger items that do not fit in the bins (such as furniture, outdoor accessories, sporting equipment, some toys and electronics) should be set aside in one location for pick-up.

  • Mattresses, box springs, bed frames
  • Large Appliances
  • Broken or damaged furniture
  • Broken or damaged toys, sporting goods or household items
