There is more to rubbish clearance and management than just calling your rubbish removal company to come and cart it away. More often than not, it is about responsibility, it is about being responsible for not just disposing of the rubbish, but collecting it correctly. It’s not enough to have the rubbish ready waiting to be collected for disposal; responsible homeowners take a time to sort out the rubbish so that things are easier for the disposer. Mind you, some of the waste that you refer to as rubbish can be recycled, used as manure, donated, reused, and so on so forth. As a cardinal rule, there are things you should never do with your rubbish. Some are out rightly hazardous to your health or the environment’s; while others are futile from the word to go. Check below a list of things you should always avoid;
Never put all rubbish in same bin
first and foremost, always make a point of distinguishing the waste you’re putting out for collection. For instance, kitchen waste like vegetable waste peelings of fruits, potatoes, etc, can be utilized as manure in your home garden. Other forms of waste like sawdust and wood peelings from a home renovation can also be used for mulching in your garden, rather than burning them. The secret lies in having different bins located strategically around your home. Kitchen bin should strictly be used for kitchen waste, while an outdoor bin should collect other forms of rubbish found outside.
Burning of plastic is wrong
another common mistake most homeowners make is burning of waste in a landfill. Plastics and other polyethylene materials emit harmful gasses when burnt, which in turn harms the environment. Yet, such can be recycled into useful products. No waste either at home or in commercial premises deserves to be burnt as a way of disposal; and if it has to be burnt, it should be done by a certified clearance company in a specially designated area.
Never wait for long before collection
some waste clearance companies charge clients per every trip they make to their premises to clear rubbish. Some homeowners thus tend to prolong such visits, just to save a few coins. But it is much better to agree on a routine that doesn’t wait for weeks before the company comes to collect your rubbish. If rubbish stays for long in your compound before collection, it emits foul smells, attracts rodents and roaches. Having the rubbish collected at least twice a week is a good way to go about it.
