I have heard of companies that come into a house and clean out everything that is left, like after someone walks out of a house leaving furniture , etc. I am trying to sell my parents house and none of the family can take any more furniture. Habitat for Humanity is very particular about what they will take. I will probably call Salvation Army and or Goodwill, but there will still be 'stuff" left. does anyone know of a company in Atlanta? I would be willing to pay for the service....within reason. Unfortunately, I am in Charlotte, so there is only so much I can do from here. and getting my family to help is not gonna happen. I asked them to do something simple, like call the paper and list the death notice and no one would do it. 2-1/2 weeks later I finally called myself. We're talking a 2 line notice!!!

As for the junk that remains, I think you can call 1-800-GOT-JUNK, though there is a cost for this pick up service.

Junk Removal | Hauling 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Trash Waste Garbage Rubbish Removal

Free pick ups are available from some non-profits like American Kidney Fund:

American Kidney Fund - Schedule Free Pickup (http://www.akfpickup.com/schedule.htm - broken link)

As far as cleaning the house, there are numerous services such as Molly Maid:

Georgia Maid Services: Local Home Cleaning in Georgia (GA)

Perhaps others can jump in here with better suggestions?

We recently went through this with my MIL's apartment in NJ. We found an organization that sets up homeless families in apartments. They took absolutely everything, we didn't even have to pack it. The only (minor) problem we had was timing. Because it was staffed by volunteers, we had to wait until they were available to come. Maybe one of the homeless agencies in the area could help with a suggestion?

The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta : Making a House a Home is an excellent charity that takes furniture for homeless people transitioning to housing.
