We all want to live in a clean home free of litter and rubbish spread everywhere. A littered compound or house isn’t a good sight to look at. Accumulating large piles of rubbish can be costly as removers will count the costs on an hourly basis. The more hours it will take for them to finish up their work, the more costs you will incur. To save money you spend on rubbish, this is what you can do:
Have enough rubbish collection bins
Ensure that your home has enough rubbish collection bins to make it easy for the removalists to easily pick it up and save you money. Having only one bin can incur you more costs in case your rubbish accumulates. This is because is the removalist has to take time and collect the rubbish and pack it. This takes a lot of time and thus more money you will have to pay.
This information will help you to keep your home clean and healthy to live in.
Call your rubbish remover often
Having fixed dates to have your rubbish removed isn’t a good idea. You don’t have to wait until the end of the month to call the rubbish remover. This will keep your rubbish volume increasing and by the end of the month, a lot of work will have to be done by the remover. This will only incur more costs. If possible, call your rubbish remover once every two weeks so that your rubbish volume is kept at a minimum.
Proper sorting of rubbish
The other reason why your rubbish remover will give you a costly bill is how you disposed of your rubbish. Learn to categorise your rubbish and manage it well. If you have electronic waste, hazardous waste, medical waste, liquid/household waste, etc. Mixing them will make the job a bit tricky to carry out by the remover. Remember that recyclable items need not to be mixed with non-recyclable waste.
Be responsible and reduce rubbish
Take the initiative to reduce rubbish in your home and can save costs. Rubbish that is piled up in big heaps will attract more costs to arrange and collect by the rubbish remover. Ways you can reduce rubbish include: using reusable shopping cloth bags so you can stop accepting plastic bags.
Also, you can reduce plastic bottle waste by buying only big containers which you can also reuse! The other way is through re-use and recycling old items. More important if you can donate them instead of throwing them away.
The above information not only helps you tremendously save money but also keeps your home clean and healthy to live in. Piling up rubbish without immediate removal can attract disease-carrying vectors such as flies and cockroaches. Make sure that sanitation and family hygiene are strictly observed to save you money.
