Planning Some Demolition and Remodeling? Don’t Forget the Waste CollectionNovember 6, 2021
As a Business Owner do you have a Waste Management Strategy?December 6, 2021
Removing very bulky items from our homes during a trash clearance can prove to be really challenging to many of us as we do not know where to start. Their shape present a challenge to move, and they may be really heavy too. You may be getting rid of something that you no longer use, or you may be replacing it with a new one, for example you may have bought a new couch, or you may be replacing or getting rid of a hot tub. These are bulky items and are difficult to dispose of.
We have all experienced lock down in some form or another over the past nearly two years and have had to spend more time at home as our work and travel patterns changed. Many of us have used Covid-19 and the lockdown that we were forced to live through to do some home renovations and improvements, buying items that we may not ordinarily have bought to make our lives easier. Some of us took up new hobbies such as woodwork or crafting where we most probably needed to buy new equipment and tools. Others took to learning to play a musical instrument in order to pass the time productively.
We were confronted with spending weeks or even months at home during lockdown, and many of the purchases we made were intended to entertain us. We bought items that we thought would make our lives more pleasant and staying at home easier, using spare cash that we may normally have used for holidays.
But now that we are coming out of the strict lockdowns and have more freedom to travel, go back to work and school, and socialize, some of these items do not seem so vital any more. In fact we may regret buying them and need to get rid of them.
One such item is a hot tub. Although a hot tub is a big plus to have at home as it is a place that the whole family can relax, it seems to be one of those purchases that some people regret making during lockdown. Moving a hot tub is complicated as even the smallest ones are large and awkward. They are very heavy as well and can present a challenge when they need to be removed from your home or garden and carried to the removal vehicle. If you decide to call a professional junk removal company to assist with your hot tub removal, Little Green Junk is experienced in the removal of bulky items. We can help you with the removal and disposal of your hot tub.
There are a few steps you can take yourself in preparation for your hot tub removal. These can be completed before the removal crew arrive and will save some time, and therefore some money.
- Unplug the hot tub from the network and keep the electrical cords safely to one side.
- Drain all the water from the tub. Use a long hose to direct the water into your garden, outside drain, or straight into the street gutter.
- Follow the maker’s instructions to give it a good clean and make sure it is properly dry.
Now you are ready for the removal crew. They should bring the correct equipment with them to move the hot tub without damaging it or it’s surrounds.
Another purchase that you may be regretting is buying that large home gym which seemed like a great idea at the time when we were prohibited from attending gyms during the pandemic. It probably did its job to keep you fit during the lockdowns, but with these restrictions lifting, we realise that we may not need such a large gym after all, as we can go back to our normal gym, albeit under stricter restrictions than before. Besides, we need to reclaim the space in our house that we gave up when installing the home gym. Home gym items are among the most regretted purchases made during the pandemic, and many of these are no longer used.
Luckily hot tubs and home gyms are both easy to resell, so you should have no problem recycling either of them. Buyer’s remorse is something that happens to many of us, but because the times of the pandemic were something that no one had ever experienced before and we bought stuff that we thought would help us get through the worst of times, we need to be easy on ourselves instead of feeling guilty.
For other bulky items such as an old couch that you may wish to get rid of please contact us for advice. Besides for having an awkward shape and being heavy to lift, couches consist of materials that need to be disposed of responsibly. They cannot just be dumped anywhere, as they leach toxic chemicals when they disintegrate. We are able to dispose of your old couch in a responsible manner without harming our environment.
