People who have lived in one house for a long time will inevitably come to the realization that they’ve got too much stuff that’s accumulated over the years and decades. These people may not be chronic hoarders but there are usually some impractical items that aren’t good enough to give to charity but may be useful someday far Rubbish Please London in the future. Things like damaged chairs, broken old grandfather clocks, boxes of old magazines, rusty toolboxes, picture frames coming apart at the corners, interesting liquor bottles – all the common items that are candidates for a junk removal service to pick up.

The toxic material became the building block of the toy industry with millions of cheap items of all sizes, for a long time bearing the words “Made in Japan” which in the decade following the war became the comic phrase for anything flimsy and cheap. Times have certainly changed now that the Japanese technology is the finest in the world. Long gone are the little toy soldiers and tanks that formed tiny plastic armies that became instantly boring, set aside, and tossed in the toybox.
