There’s no doubt that we all want to live in an environment that’s safe, clean and free of bulky waste and rubbish. In addition to looking and smelling unpleasant, bulky rubbish can pose serious health threats to members of the community. Unfortunately, managing bulky waste can be quite difficult given their weights and dimensions.
While commercial rubbish removal companies such as Paul’s Rubbish Removal can help you deal with such tasks, it’s necessary that we all know how to manage our own bulky rubbish. Otherwise, bulky rubbish may become hazardous to you and anyone around.
For this reason, below are our top tips on how to cut the cost of bulky rubbish clearance.
Can they be reused?
According to recent statistics from the NSW Department of Local Government, 37% of household waste in Sydney is recycled. This figure could be as high as 80% if we all learn to recycle better.
In essence, it’s crucial to find out whether something that you consider rubbish could be useful to someone else. For example, do you have a kitchen appliance that you’re willing to dispose of but it’s still in working condition? The best thing would be to donate such items and reduce the bulk.
You can put a PLEASE TAKE ME sticker or simply donate the item to any charity organization in your area.
Save by Earning Something on the Bulky Rubbish
Still, on reusable rubbish, you can save by making some little cash on something you consider garbage. There are businesses and people that will collect your tin cans and plastic bottles for money. You can contact them and they’ll be willing to pay you some little cash on your garbage.
Alternatively, you can take a picture of your garbage item, post it on online sites such as eBay and you’ll likely have someone willing to buy it. Although this may require some effort, it’s certainly worth it if you’ll earn some cash and still help keep the community clean.
Arrange and Sort Everything Out
One of the simplest and most effective ways of reducing the cost of bulky rubbish clearance is by arranging and sorting everything out. You can have a container for different rubbish such as glass, plastic, and metal. Figure out the items that go on each container or category and arrange them accordingly.
By doing this, you’ll reduce the bulkiness and reduce the costs of rubbish collection.
Break Down the Garbage before Collection
Keep in mind that most rubbish collection companies often charge for their services based on the volume of the garbage collected. So unless the rubbish is toxic, dangerous or very heavy, you can consider breaking it down.
If you’ve got time and energy, you can dismantle items such as furniture to reduce its bulk and of course the volume. Remember, most rubbish collection companies won’t do a lot of dismantling for you unless they’re Paul’s Rubbish Removal.
Team up with a Neighbour and Split the Cost
As the saying goes; a problem shared is half solved. Talk to your neighbour and find out whether they are also dealing with similar bulky rubbish issues. You can team up with him/her and split the removal costs.
Many people have bulky junks somewhere and they always wonder how to manage them. Your neighbour could be one of these people.
Contact the Local Recycling Plant
There are various recycling plants within Sydney that would be willing to take up the garbage offered them. So it’s important to get in touch with them and find out if there’s anything they’d need from your garbage. This will not only reduce the bulky rubbish clearance cost but will leave your place looking tidy, safe and healthy.
