MaxSold Estate Sales and Downsizing Auctions: January 2020 Highlights
Did you know, it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose, a piece of plywood takes 1-3 years, a cardboard box can take two months and if not recycled properly, a glass bottle can take up to 1 million years to decompose! Estate sales and downsizing auctions continue to be an eco-friendly way let go of unwanted and no longer needed items. They are also a great way to avoid excess packaging from furniture!
