4 ways to deal with a yard full of junk!

Is your yard full of junk? If it is, I would suggest that you look at how you can eradicate this situation as soon as possible. A yard full of junk is a breeding haven for pests and insects. As such, it really is in your best interest to try to keep your yard clean and junk-free.

But what if your yard is littered with so much junk that it is difficult to even get started? I hear you and there’s no need to worry. It can be really easy to deal with junk, provided you follow the right steps.

As a junk removal expert, I certainly know how to efficiently remove junk from a yard. Continue reading this article as I offer 4 easy steps to help you deal with your messy yard!

1. Preparation

Over time, I’ve realised that the key to dealing with junk lies in being prepared. When you’re not prepared to face a task, you will most likely put it off for later. This certainly doesn’t help with yard cleaning, as junk keeps on piling up and the task keeps getting more daunting.

You need to be mentally and physically prepared before you start removing junk from your yard. Make sure that you have all tools that you need to start the cleaning process. In my opinion, a few must-have items include gardening gloves, sunscreen, shears, clippers and garden bags or skip bins for larger clean-ups. Once you have everything you need and you’re mentally prepared to take up the task, it won’t seem as daunting.

2. Rake away twigs and dead leaves

When I undertake a junk removal job for a client, I always start by removing the garden waste first. Just about every yard has some amount of fallen twigs and leaves, which only add to the junk items scattered throughout the yard.

While these will eventually turn into compost, leaving them as they are will prohibit sunlight from reaching the grass. Moreover, dead leaves and dying twigs are havens for pests.

Before I start to remove any junk, I make sure I have a junk skip bin on-hand. Once I have the skip bin, I simply fill it with all the garden waste so I can move on to larger junk items. I highly recommend you do the same.

3. Get rid of yard junk

Once you have removed all the lighter garden waste, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and use your muscles to tackle the junk. How you go about this will depend on the amount and type of waste you have to clear. Common junk will include old broken pot plans, perished hoses and broken kids’ toys. However, if you have larger items you may also need to call a mate for a helping hand.

As with the garden waste, I usually go around the yard collecting the junk and place them into the skip bin. I suggest that you read an article I wrote on our sister site that explains how to pack a skip to ensure you utilise the maximum amount of space provided in the skip.

Once you have removed the garden waste and all the junk from your yard, you can simply give us a call and we will come and remove the skip – and your junk – from your premises.

Getting your yard into tip-top shape is as simple as that!

4. Call in the experts

If however doing the hands-on work isn’t up your alley, or you simply don’t have the time or patience to handle junk removal yourself, you need not worry. You can always call in the experts to clear out junk from your garden.

At 4 Waste Removals, we also offer a hands-on rubbish removal service just for this purpose. When you hire a skip bin, you can also request that professional rubbish removers clean out your garden. For a small fee starting upwards of $60, you can hire rubbish removal experts to clean your waste. Of course, if you’re up for it, you can take on the junk removal project yourself and just have us collect the skip.


To deal with a yard that is full of garden waste, you need to follow some easy steps. First, prepare yourself mentally and gather all tools required for cleaning the garden. Also, you must hire garden bags or skip bins to get rid of the waste. Once you’ve done so, clear out all debris, dead twigs and leaves and place them in the junk skip bin. After this, all you have to do is call rubbish removal experts and have them dispose of garden waste for you. If you don’t feel like cleaning out the garden yourself, you can hire professionals to do the task for you. There’s no excuse for having an unkempt garden given that it can be so easy to get rid of junk.
