What's the quickest, easiest way to clean out my mom's house in San Diego when I don't live there?

My mom is still alive, but we had to move her to assisted living out of state. My siblings and I are all busy and live out of the area, but we need to clean out and renovate her house fast so we can rent it to help pay for her care.
I'm not sure how valuable any of her stuff is -- I suspect my stepfather will take the decent appliances, and they don't own antiques. Will an estate sale company even be interested? Frankly, we'd probably be willing to write it all off if someone will simply take it all and trash what can't be salvaged for us. Does anyone provide that sort of service, and how does it work?
