While the Christmas season is a time for joy and cheer, it’s also a time of extra waste – especially for apartment complexes and communities. From extra boxes and used wrapping paper to old furniture and broken items, it’s crucial to have a plan to ensure that it all gets removed in a timely and efficient manner.
One of the most effective strategies for managing extra holiday waste is to schedule bulk junk removal ahead of time. Let’s take a look at all the ways you can plan ahead for after-Christmas waste with solutions like sustainable junk removal and more.
3 Ways to Prepare Your Community for the Junk
Here are some ways to prepare your community for holiday waste:
1. Schedule Sustainable Junk Removal Services
With over 5,000 drivers, CheckSammy is the world’s largest sustainable junk removal provider. While we offer junk removal on-demand, you can set yourself up for success by scheduling your junk removal services ahead of time.
By planning ahead, you guarantee that all your junk is disposed of properly, and you can even schedule a few pickups to keep things well organized. Additionally, if you order your services today, you’ll be contributing to our Treecember campaign (more on that in a bit).
2. Consider Solutions Like SmartBINS
Rather than having your residents trash recyclable items like kitchenware, appliances, toys, and more, consider solutions like our SmartBINS. We will drop the bins off in your community, and your residents simply dump their unwanted items in them. We receive real-time alerts once they’re full, so you never have to worry about overflow!

3. Institute a CheckSammy Bag Program Through the Holiday Season
If you want to make things as frictionless as possible for your residents and donate to charity in the process, consider running a CheckSammy bag program. With this solution, each of your residents will receive a large bag they can fill with items they no longer need, like:
- Clean clothing
- Small electronics
- Clean linens
- Sports equipment
- Reusable household items
- Home décor
- And more
All your residents have to do is take their bags to a designated “trash room” (like your lobby) and pick up another bag if they need it. Then, we’ll come and pick up the bags and donate the items to local charities.
Why Planning Sustainable Junk Removal Is So Important
The holidays can be stressful and busy, making it challenging to keep up with all the extra junk. But by planning ahead, you can ensure that your multi-family complex’s junk is handled responsibly and sustainably.
Sustainable junk removal is crucial because it reduces the amount of reusable waste sent to our already overflowing landfills and encourages people to donate, upcycle, or repurpose items rather than discard them. It’s a terrific way to ensure a greener, healthier environment for everyone.
When you book a junk removal service in advance, you also ensure that your apartment complex doesn’t experience any delays or problems when removing unwanted items. (It’s a busy season, after all, and the last thing you want is to have to wait for junk removal services).
Get Ahead of the Holiday Junk with Sustainable Junk Removal Services
By planning ahead, your multi-family residence can have a successful and stress-free holiday season that isn’t overwhelmed with junk! Plus, you can be confident that you’re handling your waste sustainably and responsibly.
There’s another reason to plan ahead this holiday season. This month, CheckSammy is running our annual Treecember campaign. As usual, we’ve partnered with OneTreePlanted to plant one tree for every job we complete. In addition, we’ll plant ten new trees for each new location we service. Which means that, when you schedule your services today, you’re also helping reforest Appalachia.
Don’t wait until you’re overwhelmed with junk to start thinking about after-Christmas junk removal – plan ahead and make sure your community is ready for the holiday season! Contact us now to schedule your after-Christmas junk removal services.
