Garbage Removal Companies and the Covid-19 Pandemic
During these tough times we are all experiencing with this pandemic, we can contribute to everyone’s safety by following rules that the scientists recommend, thus minimizing the risk of getting infected.
While households and businesses emerge from weeks of shutdown, many people have gone back to work, while many others continue to work from home. For the foreseeable future, the way we live, work, communicate, and commute, have been altered by this pandemic. This ‘new normal’ has required aspects of our lives to change, including the way we organize our businesses, to how our educational institutions operate.
The Importance of Safe Waste Disposal
Many people are still self-isolating at home to keep safe, by complying with social distancing rules and limited social contact. As a waste pick up company, we take these social rules on board to ensure safe waste disposal.
With more time spent at home, people have used this period as a perfect opportunity to carry out major yard and home cleanouts. Jobs that have been put off for years, like basement cleanout, garage cleanout, redecorating and painting, decluttering and garden cleanouts have led to a huge increase in the amount of trash generated. Bulky waste items prove difficult to dispose of as many councils no longer collect this type of trash, instead, concentrating on household waste. Normal household recycling has been disrupted as household waste recycling centers have been closed for weeks for safety reasons as they tend to attract large crowds making social distancing rules difficult to maintain.
Traditional reuse routes like eBay and even the large charities who normally accept most used items, have been unable to assist in the reuse and recycling of bulky waste items, because they are unwilling to risk employee safety. In the past you could rely on these ways of getting rid of your unwanted household items. This inability to reuse or recycle has resulted in many households storing more trash than they normally do as well as facing difficulty in disposing of it responsibly.

What to expect from a Waste Removal Company?

We are aware of fly tippers who take short cuts which add to the polluting of our environment. We wish to encourage people living in York, Lancaster, or Harrisburg PA to be aware of the safety rules we are recommending, and to make sure the trash removal companies they use are licensed by the local authorities to avoid further pollution.
Safety Rules to Follow
These are recommended for your safety and ours.
- Please keep your distance from our team when we remove your waste by preferably staying indoors. This will ensure no contact between you or anyone in our team. We routinely check the health of our staff to protect each other and our customers.
- Have your trash ready and waiting for removal, preferably collected and placed in an area where social distancing can be practiced. If you would rather that we not enter your premises, please leave your waste in an accessible place.
- Please adhere to social distancing rules by keeping a space of 5ft between you and our crew. Keep personal interactions to a minimum.
- We encourage communication using email or phone, which is unlike our personal, courteous approach in normal conditions.
Safety is our Primary Concern
The routine of washing our hands with soap and water, not touching our faces and for some of us, wearing masks, has become standard practice during this time. Cleaning work surfaces in our kitchens, disinfecting items that may be virus-infected and cleaning equipment like our computers and phones are recommended. The general cleanliness of our properties and homes has become more important to us, and waste pickup and disposal is a crucial part of this routine in keeping healthy.
It is our responsibility as a well-established licensed rubbish removal company to make you aware of these guidelines for safe waste removal during these times. Every precaution you take can help save you, and your family members from exposure to infection. We know that it is necessary for both us and our clients to work together to ensure that we stick to these safety rules for the benefit of our safety.
