How to Manage Junk in Your Garage

You probably pile so much trash constantly, and the next thing you worry about is how to contain them so that they don’t create a mess out of your kitchen, pantry, or some room that should house something else.

Lo and behold, you start thinking about putting your trash in the garage, an already dedicated space containing what your homes don’t want to handle. After a while, your garage starts piling up all kinds of random rubbish, and it is also trash.

As a supposed extension comfort space, your garages somehow turned into something of a big garbage container itself. This can cause problems and issues later on that can affect your household.

Managing your trash even in the garage can help make waste management in your homes better. 

As such, these are ways for you to manage your junk in the garage:

Segregate garbage properly


One way to manage your garbage, especially the ones you will store in the garage is by sorting them out into proper classifications. Even if knowledge on waste segregation is quite the information overload that will confuse you, knowing the basics of segregation is key.

Have separate containers or bins for different kinds of trash. Strictly using the segregation bins can help reduce the volume of your trash per type.

For example, having bins in different colours can help in determining the kind of waste your family puts out and focusing on how to deal with the waste that needs urgent attention.

Proper garbage segregation can also teach your families helpful habits. These practices then, don’t only aid in the garbage, but in your home management as well.

Pack or store the trash tightly


Don’t just dump your junk in the garage and leave it there. Trash containment is key to keeping your garage safe. Rodents or insects might rummage through your garbage if you don’t pack them lightly.

Close your bins well every single time you open them. Tightly knot your black plastic garbage containers such that they don’t end up gradually opening up loose.

Organise how you pile your garbage containers to maximise the space in your garage better.

Donate or sell things that you can still use


Most of the things you put out can be beneficial. Turning a notch up, the efforts you have in garbage management can lessen your loads at home. For many things that can still have further use, give them to others that might have more use of it.

Even if you’re not going to use it anymore but others might need just the right thing that you have thrown away. There are plenty of institutions or organisations locally that can receive your donations.

You can also opt to sell those things. For example, you have an old cupboard that you want to replace already and as such, you have it stored in the garage first, which definitely takes up space.

Why not post that old cupboard and sell it for a bargain price? This can add a few bucks for you at the same, get rid of the thing you don’t want anymore.

Check your garage from time to time


Checking your garbage constantly is essential in keeping your rubbish in order. You will know when to book your garbage pickups or you can double-check again the trash that you can still recycle.

Also, you need to look out for possible pests, rodents, cats or animals that have made your trash in the garage their home. Make your garage as safe and as protected too, even if it’s only to house your comfort zones mess and unwanted things around.
