December 8, 2015 Uncategorized

One of the most common reasons people look to enlist the help of a home cleaning service is in situations where waste has mounted up. This is a regular occurrence during times such as home renovations, moving house, or just an old-fashioned spring clean. When you’re faced with a mountain of waste to get rid of, you might feel a stress vein popping in your temples. How are you going to sift through it all? That’s when many people pick up the phone and make the call. If your back garden is suddenly looking more like a landfill, it’s time to reclaim it. Here are some of your options.

Leave it to the Experts

Where do you even begin? If your rubbish is starting to look like more than you can tackle by yourself, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. There are hundreds of professional options that can help you see it through. You could rent the tried and test man with a van to haul your waste away for you so that you don’t need to waste a second more worrying about it. With a little foresight, you could locate a skip bin hire company to keep things tidy if you know you’re going to be throwing a lot out.


I would try to recommend this to everyone. It’s becoming more and more important to reduce our carbon footprints wherever we can. Our household waste is chief amongst them. If you find yourself throwing out a lot of things that could be put to better use, round it up and head for your nearest recycling station. They’ll be happy to take it all off your hands. And even better than that? You could be paid a nominal fee for your efforts. Governments are looking at initiatives to get people to recycle, and giving money in exchange for plastic and paper is one of them.

Take it to the Dump

There is likely a large centre designated to waste in your local area. This is for the occasions where you have too much to throw out and it can’t be sorted by your regular rubbish men. This may only be an option if you have the means to transport your waste. You may want to rent a van to take it all in one trip, but you can still achieve it with a regular car. It may just take a few more trips than you’d like. Set aside an hour to travel back and forth, and sort through your waste. There will be different deposits for general waste, household waste and recycling.

If there’s a job in your house on the horizon that you know will result in a lot of waste, I advise planning ahead. You don’t want to be left in a mound of rubbish and not know where to turn. That’s the quickest way to induce stress during an already stressful time! Know what your options are, and make calls ahead of time to avoid any disappointments.
