Let’s admit it – removing junk from your home is a messy business. No matter how well you plan, eliminating clutter usually ends up in big piles of trash. The mere sight of a massive piled-up trash can be quite off-putting; and let’s not forget the detrimental effects it can have on the environment. But don’t worry if you’re on a junk-removal spree and not sure how to dispose of garbage properly.
In this blog post, we have discussed some terrific tips and tricks to eliminate waste for a clutter-free house and a neater surrounding!
1. Always Begin with Planning
It’s always a good idea to start with a proper plan. Make a proper list of all the places and rooms you want to de-clutter. Also, make a list of the things you want to get rid of and the things you want to keep. And then separate them accordingly.
2. Separate the Items
Separate them into three piles – keep, sell/donate, throw away, and recycle. Make sure that the room is large and spacious so that you can easily separate the items. Set apart the “keep pile” to prevent it from mixing with others. The same goes for the sell/donate, trash, and recycling pile.
For more ease and convenience, label each item whether it needs to stay or toss away.
3. Be Careful When Disposing of Hazardous Items
Contact your garbage hauler when getting rid of dangerous items like flammable products, chemicals, insecticides, batteries, etc. All of these products need special handling so it is better to hire a professional to dispose them.
We repeat, avoid throwing them away in your trash can at all costs.
4. Get a Dumpster
If you are getting rid of a massive amount of clutter, it’s likely that it won’t fit your trash can. You don’t want your bin overflowing with garbage and see little bugs flying around. A better alternative is to rent a dumpster for a day or two until you get all the clutter out of your house.
You can have the dumpster in your driveway or yard and use it whenever you want to throw something away at any given time of the day. Once the use of a dumpster is over, you can return it back to the dumpster company.
5. Hire a Trash Removal Company
If you have a lot more to toss than you can manage, try hiring a junk removal company. When you have a professional team by your side, eliminating junk from your home becomes a lot easier. They usually take care of everything from organizing clutter to junk pick up to tossing it away.
Hiring professional junk removal services is always a good option, especially if you have a lot of junk but are short on time. The best part? They usually are quite cost-effective!
