Spring Cleaning & Recycling

Cleaning Out the Garage

Is it time to start decluttering your garage and getting rid of those items that have been gathering dust? Start by sorting through your recyclables and using Depozip to recycle your empties. Depozip allows you to schedule a pick-up of your recyclable beverage containers, so you can stay home and keep working on your clean-up projects. Just bag them up, follow the steps in the web app, and we’ll take care of the rest.

But it doesn’t stop there. Look around your garage for old tools, car batteries, or metal items that you no longer need. With our Scrap Metal program, you can turn some of these items into cash. Appliances are also accepted for recycling, there is no payment but it is free to recycle them at our depot, check this list to see which locations accept appliances. It’s a simple and effective way to clear out space while putting some extra money in your pocket.

Old swing sets, metal patio furniture, and garden decor can all be recycled as Scrap Metal. Visit our Scrap Metal Page to learn more about what you can earn for unwanted items. Not only will you be clearing out the old to make way for the new, but you’ll also be earning money in the process.
