Deciding what goods aren’t necessary is the first step to take. You may have various items that may not be used on a regular basis but still are useful from time to time, so you must determine which you can do without.

Smaller items can be placed in plastic waste bags and put with your regular litter collection, getting rid of them easily. If you have too many goods to do this, and /or some of them are much too large for this, then you should hire a skip.
