Turn Your Waste Removal Chore Into a Project

Clear your weekend schedule and tackle your home decluttering once and for all. For the inner neat-freak, a whole-home decluttering is worth all the hard work for the extra space and sense of accomplishment that follows. Once you’ve organised your trusty waste removal provider in melbourne, then you’re ready to get your hands dirty.

The first thing to do is to order a skip bin or rubbish removal service so that you know what kind of storage you have to work with. You can either hire a bin and have it delivered beforehand so that you can position it conveniently and transfer all your trash into the bin in the one easy move, or you can hire a removal service which will come and pick up a pile of trash for you. If you choose the former, you will need to have the bin on site in advance to avoid moving everything twice.

Now that you’re ready, it’s time to get sorting. Be brutal, and if you spend too much time thinking about memories associated with each little trinket, not only will you waste a whole lot of time, but you will also not end up throwing anything away. Recruit a strong minded friend to help you through it, someone that will tell you when you are being unproductive and someone that has the will to say a definitive yes or no. For those really on the fence items, put them in the maybe pile and go through them again later after you’ve had time to think. This way you’re still being efficient but won’t run the risk of getting rid of something important to you.

If you find that you’re quickly running out of room in your bin or that you pile of rubbish is getting far too large, then start to think of other ways of getting rid of your goods. Take a few quick photos of bulk good condition items and post on Facebook, telling friends and family to come and grab what they like. Also place this on Gumtree and see what sort of response you get. If you can spare a day on a weekend, then a garage sale is a great way to get rid of things quickly and also get to know your neighbours.

If selling for a small price doesn’t work, then you can always give your things away to someone in need. Charity shops welcome donations in most cases, otherwise a local shelter might appreciate them. If all else fails, see how much of your rubbish is recyclable or even reusable to decrease your contribution to landfill. Ultimately there will be a fair portion of your rubbish which will need to go in a skip, and you can do your part for the environment by choosing an eco-friendly business which is determined to recycle where possible.

Waste Removal Is a Must For When You Move House

Moving into a new place is exciting, thinking about where things will go and how you will decorate your new space. However, before the fun stuff can happen, you will first need to clear out the junk that you will not bring with you. This is where effective waste removal services in Melbourne come in handy.

Many people choose to organise a hard rubbish collection due to the number of larger pieces that they wish to get rid of. This can be a good idea in some cases, but it has its shortcomings. Primarily, the date of a hard rubbish collection is determined by the council. If the date they give you is not ideal then there is not much you can do about it. Ideally, you would want this collection to be a day or two before you move out entirely and hand over the keys. In most people’s experience, you will actually have more waste than you initially predict. As you start the moving process you find that there are more and more items from storage to furniture that you don’t want to bring with you. Having your rubbish day too early would mean that you discover more waste following the removal and require another. Then again, you probably won’t want your removal to be on moving day, as you will be busy moving and don’t have the time to move your belongings onto the curb. Most councils stipulate that rubbish for removal cannot be put out more than one evening before the scheduled pick up, so your timing needs to be good.

As well as the timing, there is of course the problem of capacity. Hard rubbish will only take a trailer load, and many home owners who are moving find that they have far more than that to dispose of. This is where it makes sense to arrange your own means of rubbish disposal, as you can choose the size that suits you, as well as the date of delivery.

The alternatives of forgetting and organising no waste removal are both negative. Firstly, you could leave the house in a poor condition and as a result either risk not getting your bond back in a rental, or leaving your home to go on the market in an unappealing state. Even ‘renovator’s delight’ properties need to be presentable where possible. Secondly, you could take your rubbish with you to your new place and then work out how to get rid of it. This really just doubles your effort and besides, your new place should be reserved for only the things you really want. It is about decluttering as much as it is about moving in.

Finally, moving is a huge job. On the day of the actual move if you’re doing it yourself with a trailer, it will be exhausting. Even if you are hiring a van with people to do the heavy lifting, the mental strain of organising schedules, preparing and cleaning is enough to drive you mad. Choose a rubbish service that doesn’t add to your list of chores, but actually decreases it. Unlike a skip, a rubbish service will hand load your trash and do it for you.
