Storage sheds tend to become dumps for just about everything. Because they are big open spaces, they’re easy targets for that suitcase that won’t fit in the closet, the rollerblades your daughter doesn’t want to throw away yet, the sewing machine you need to give back to your neighbor, and anything else that doesn’t have a set place. —Houzz.com
If the shed itself needs disposal, then you’ll need to dismantle it. But, that’s a lot more work. However, you can always call a junk removal service to dismantle it and haul it away. Or, you can sell it, if it’s in good condition. But, if you just need space, you’ll need to get organized.
