Facing a Challenge with Your Waste Disposal? How to Cut Down on WasteFebruary 7, 2023
Holidays are over! Nearly time to get back to work! Getting your home back into shape again after the holidays can be a bit of a chore. Family and visitors have left, decorations need to be packed away carefully, and your home no doubt needs a good clean including junk and waste removal.
We all want a fresh start to the year. We make resolutions regarding how to improve our health, wealth, relationships. And maybe we should include in these how to live better by keeping our environment organised. In recommitting to proper recycling, keeping our homes junk and clutter free, and our yards tidy will enable this to happen.
For this to become a reality, we may need help from a professional junk removal company when we need waste removed. Here are some ideas from Little Green Junk to assist in your fresh start.
Carry out a quick cleanup when your visitors leave. By doing just these basic cleaning jobs, you will ensure that your home is clean, fresh, and smells good, and it won’t take too long either.
Clean out the fridge and pantry
These may be in a mess after a busy few weeks, so this is a good place to start. There may be leftovers stuck at the back of the fridge that have been overlooked, and some tired looking fruit and vegetables that are past their best. If you have a compost bin, this is the place for these.
Sort through your freezer and toss anything that you no longer need. The pantry also needs to be checked. Get rid of those items that have passed their sell by date.
Give the kitchen cabinets and shelves a thorough clean and wipe down, including all appliances.
Catch up on household laundry, concentrating on your bed linen
Chances are that if you have had visitors to stay, your sheets and towels have all been used. Wash all of your linen to keep these items hygienic.
Give your bathroom, showers, and toilets a good clean by swabbing the surfaces and mopping the floors.
Pack up holiday decorations
These will need to be packed up carefully and stored for when you need them again. Dispose of any that are broken by placing them in your recycling. The same goes for wrapping paper, any packaging, and those cardboard boxes that you may have collected from your online orders being delivered.
Recycling glass, plastic, aluminum, and paper waste will simplify your cleanup, and ensure that you have disposed of your holiday waste responsibly.
Do You Need Other Items Hauled Away?
Are you taking advantage of this time over the holidays to declutter your home? Many householders find this is a good time to sort through cupboards, attics, basements, even garages, collect any unwanted items, and dispose of them. What a good way to start the new year with a clean uncluttered home!
There will be more items that need to be disposed of from your home if you carry out your decluttering plans.
You may have replaced your large appliances over the holidays, and you need to get rid of the old ones. It is not so easy as household appliances such as washers, fridges, and deep freezes, which are heavy to move, but even more importantly, they need to be disposed of responsibly by having the components recycled and the material reused. Little Green Junk will get your old appliances to the proper facilities for recycling, so you need not worry about them landing up in a landfill and polluting the environment.
Electronic Waste Removal
E-waste is the fastest growing stream of waste, and it is extremely harmful to the environment if it is disposed of in a landfill. This is the time of year when you may have replaced some of your electronic items such as TV’s, phones, and laptops.
Try and donate what you can, or sell it on if in good condition, but if there are no other options you need to make sure that it is disposed of responsibly.
Old Furniture Removal
Replacing your old furniture with new means that you have to consider how to dispose of the old pieces. They are often bulky, heavy, and awkward to move. So instead of trying to move them yourself and risking a back injury, contact a professional junk removal company to solve this problem for you. They will bring a team to lift these heavy pieces, put them on a truck, and take them away, with minimal fuss to you. These unwanted furniture items need to be recycled where possible, either by being donated to a charity, or sold on. Most local authorities do not allow these bulky items to be left out on the sidewalk, so the alternative is using a waste removal company to dispose of these items.
Yard Waste Removal
If you have any yard waste that needs removing, or even construction waste such as pieces of wood, cement, old tiles, and paint tins, that you need to have hauled away, this is a job for Little Green Junk. We remove and recycle construction and yard waste where we can. There is no need for your yard to appear cluttered with waste again. Just give us a call, arrange a day and time to suit you, and the job is as good as done.
