Delete is a service that will haul away your junk with just a photo and text message, making it easier than ever to delete things from your life

Attention all hoard-a-holics: What if you could press a button to get ride of your ever-accumulating floordrobes of junk? New service Delete has got you covered, enabling you to get rid of items in just two quick steps—by taking a photo and sending a text.

The brainchild of San Francisco-based company Slow Ventures, the service allows you to donate, recycle or get rid of items by taking a photo of them and texting it to Delete's number. The app then replies with an estimate of the cost ($20 minimum) and options to schedule a pickup time. Excessively large items like pianos and cars are the only items the company won't take and customers only pay once the job has been done to their satisfaction.
