(The company empties the dumpsters at one or those sorting/recycling centers.)
*All the unused furniture that we've been "gifted" (read: been dumped on us by people too lazy to get rid of it in an appropriate manner)
*All the old clothes that don't fit us anymore or that we don't wear (and are not in good enough condition to be donated)
*The old gas stove in our back boot room
*The metal shed, disassembled first, of course
* Lots of yard waste

Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
and a whole bunch of branches that we can't burn because it rains every day.
I would get my roommate to clean out the storage shed and the storage room
(think old yard tools and outdoor junk from 30 yrs ago)
Then we can get rid of the old fans and set up the new ones
The old bar stools
Broken office chair
Broken glider swing
Dog chewed patio set
*I think we need new outside furniture after playing this little game
We have something similar, its not a dumpster but the city has 'bulk' pick up and everyone just throws the junk in a pile in the front yard 4x a year and they come around w. a front loader and pick it up. Its kinda cool to see all the cr@p everyone has but yet you wonder how and where all that stuff comes from ever 12-14 wks.

-all the computer parts that our outdated/broken
-everything left by the previous owners (like... um... a huge toolbench that takes up half the basement...)
-kitchen appliances that are broken, and all the mismatched tupperware
-furniture that is run-down or just taking up space
-old pieces of wood & drywall (the ones you hang onto "just in case" you need a half-destroyed 2" wide piece of wood one day )
-old light fixtures, curtains, knick-knacks, etc.
-anything the kids have outgrown that isn't worth selling
-seasonal items you haven't touched in years
Ohhh I think I could go on forever...
It's my birthday gift- seriously! It cost $175 for delivery/pick-up/one week use. It is $2.50/day after your one week. They empty it at the recycling center and it cost $49/ton. They send you a bill when it's all said and done. It is the same price for every size so they recommend getting the biggest one that will fit in your driveway/yard.
My dumpster took away:
the back fence which was falling down
an old playhouse that my father had built when I was little
the rotting railroad tie planters that had surrounded the patio
Lots of random junk from our shed
a few broken toys
Unfortunately I hurt my knee while we still had it or I would have added more from the basement.
That price isn't bad at all - I think we'll look into it. I can't think of much, if anything, inside our house that I'd want to get rid of, but the garage needs to be decluttered for sure.
