Cleanout – Tips For A Safe And Efficient Estate Cleanout


Occasionally, due to the death in the family of a loved one, an estate cleanout will be necessary to clear objects from the house. At Tri-State Waste & Recycling Inc., we want this process to be as simple and straightforward as possible for you and your family. We’ve prepared a guide to help you complete this often tedious project quickly and efficiently.


Divide The Labor Among Your Volunteers


Start with an assessment of your team and their abilities. Provide them with appropriately-matched jobs based on their skill sets. If your sister is organized and detail oriented, put her in charge of filing important documents. Your cousin’s a bodybuilder? Be advantageous of his skill by letting him carry the heavier items.


Locate All Financial Documents


Finding any relevant financial documents is vital to maintaining order and staying organized for the future. Look for life insurance policies, real estate deeds, stock certificates, 401k information, and tax reports. Having access to this paperwork will prove vital in the coming months and years.


Work With Family To Share Items


Treasured items and family heirlooms will be uncovered during this process. Asking your family members to make up a list of what they would like to keep is an ideal way to divide the objects fairly and reasonably. This is also to avoid conflict among them during this difficult process.


Be Safe


Safely transferring your refuse and waste materials to our roll-off dumpsters is necessary to keep the project moving efficiently, and it’s also essential to help avoid injury from your much-needed teammates. This can include donning gloves, hard hats, safety glasses, ear protection, and dust masks to ensure that all members of your team are safe from harm.
