1. “Provide Wall-to-Wall Home Clean Out Service…”
Once your movers are done, it’s time to Empty the Nest. We clear out used furniture, furnishings and personal items you no longer have room or use for, and ready your home for its next life. Wall-to-wall – we take it all. And we treat you and your heirlooms with the dignity and respect worthy of family.
Empty the Nest saves you and your family time, money and headaches, so you’re free to settle into your new nest with fewer worries. And you can feel gratified knowing that your used furniture and household goods are getting a new lease on life with families who need them.
2. “Recycle Unneeded Personal Items…”
Empty the Nest sells used furniture and household goods through online channels and at our own Retail Showroom in Burnsville. Your unneeded items begin making new memories in the homes of new families right away – easily and affordably.
“Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.”. By helping breathe renewed life into as many items as possible and retiring the unusable in the most ecologically-friendly ways, Empty the Nest strives to leave the smallest footprint possible on our environment.
3. “Offer People…”
Empty the Nest’s mission is to employ people who are successfully recovering from addictions to alcohol or other drugs. We work with area recovery organizations to identify and screen the most appropriate staff, giving them the second chance they deserve to get back on their feet and live productive lives.
Special Services Fees and Hazardous Materials Policy
Since our goal is to leave your home ready for its next use, “wall-to-wall” clean out typically requires removal of items that cannot be sold or donated, as well as the disposal of trash. Our minimal fees allow us to cover our labor costs and recycling center charges. We are happy to estimate any special services fees before we Empty the Nest.
We cannot accept household hazardous materials such as paint, automotive fluids, lawn or pool chemicals, and similar materials.
Thank you for understanding.
