Undoubtedly, 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 community members. Unfortunately, managing bulky waste can be quite difficult, given its weight and dimensions.
While commercial rubbish removal companies such as Paul’s Rubbish Removal can help you deal with such tasks, we all must know how to manage our own bulky rubbish. Otherwise, bulky waste 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 junk could be useful to someone else. For example, do you have a kitchen appliance you’re willing to dispose of, but it’s still working? The best thing would be to donate such items and reduce the bulk.
You can put a PLEASE TAKE ME sticker or donate the item to any charity organisation.
Save by Earning Something on the Bulky Rubbish
Still, you can save on reusable rubbish by making some little cash on something you consider garbage. Some businesses and people will collect your tin cans and plastic bottles for money. You can contact them, and they’ll pay you cash for 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 worth it if you’ll earn some cash and help keep the community clean.
Arrange and Sort Everything Out
One of the simplest and most effective ways of reducing bulky rubbish clearance costs is arranging and sorting everything out. You can have a container for different rubbish such as glass, plastic, and metal. Figure out the items 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
Remember 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 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 determine 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 junk somewhere and always wonder how to manage it. Your neighbour could be one of these people.
Contact the Local Recycling Plant
Various recycling plants within Sydney would be willing to take up the garbage offered them.
So it’s important to get in touch with them and find out if they’d need anything from your trash. This will reduce the bulky rubbish clearance cost and leave your place looking tidy, safe and healthy.
