Unfortunately, the experience of losing a beloved family member is something we will all experience at some stage. We need to give ourselves time to mourn during this stressful time. If the deceased person has left possessions, including a house, the responsibility of an estate cleanout may become your obligation.
The executor of the estate is named as the person to administer the estate according to the Will left by the deceased. Assets must be gathered, debts paid, and the estate is then shared out with the beneficiaries named in the Will. The assets that no-one wants can be sold or donated.

Below are some advice to assist you when packing up a deceased’s estate.
We at Little Green Junk are your local trash removal company serving the York, Lancaster, and Harrisburg areas. We understand the difficulty disposing of personal belongings of a loved one. Our team has been trained to be polite and friendly whilst assisting you with this difficult task.
First, the beneficiaries of the Will need to identify the belongings and items they wish to keep and remove. We can help them with packing up and moving these items. Once you have decided what to keep and what to trash, we can pick up the unwanted items without disruption to your property, or incurring damage to other items that are staying.
Sort all items in the house into piles of what to keep and what to junk. Don’t forget items from the garage, basement, and attic. Empty cupboards and cabinets as well. Many of these items can be donated to charity or recycled. We can help you with this process as we encourage recycling and reusing where possible.
Tools and garden equipment are sought after items, are easy to recycle, and can be sold to junk and salvage shops.
We can remove all useless trash items, including old paint tins and broken appliances, disposing of them in a responsible manner.
Bulky items such as old furniture pieces and kitchen appliances that are no longer required can be recycled if they are in good condition. Little Green Junk is committed to recycling as much as possible. We can load up these heavy items, remove them efficiently and quickly, and deliver them to either be recycled or we will dispose of them responsibly.
Our crew at Little Green Junk will ensure that the area where we have removed the junk from is left clean and tidy. We recycle as much trash as possible as our aim is to keep it out of the landfills, so we will ensure that the bulk of your estate waste will be recycled for reuse.
The longer the property remains empty while waiting for the estate cleanout, the greater the chance there is of a break in, and valuables being stolen. If the property is being shown to potential buyers there is also a chance of items being pinched by unscrupulous people. By getting the estate cleanout done as soon as possible will help prevent vandalism and theft.
During this difficult time, it is important to control stress and depression from taking its toll on you, as the prospect of an estate cleanout may seem like a step too far to take. Entrust Little Green Junk with helping you through this difficult time by hauling away all your estate waste you need to get rid of. When you are ready, contact us, show us what you wish for us to remove, and we will get this difficult cleanout done quickly and efficiently.
It’s recommended that the beneficiaries of the estate identify any items they wish to keep early on in this process. This will help you see what is left behind that needs to be hauled away or sold. So, once you’ve sorted these out, anything valuable can be sold, and we can help with the removal of the goods you want recycled, donated, or disposed of. Once the legal procedures of the estate are completed, decisions about whether to sell or rent out the property can be made.
An early estate cleanout will help you safeguard any items of value such as old photographs, jewelry, antiques, and electronic equipment. We can help you move these to a storage facility for safe keeping, while the main cleanout is in progress.
Decide early on which items you wish to sell and how you intend to do this, whether it will be through an auctioneer or you wish to advertise privately. This will give you time to make the best decision as selling in a hurry often means settling for a lower price. Keep these items safe and in good condition so their value does not depreciate.
