Moving entails a lot of work. For one, there is the major packing of clothes, furniture, appliances, devices, and all the things you possess. Then there is cleaning, changing of address, and scheduling movers.
Yet another thing you might not anticipate is the amount of garbage you’ll generate before, during, and after you pack and move. From the first item decluttered until the last thing unpacked, you’ll need a garbage management system to keep track of everything.
For trash removal services in the South Shore, Abington, and Braintree areas, contact Troupe Waste and Recycling. We have been helping people who move out since 2004. We can help you when you have a house cleanout too! In the meantime, here are our suggestions of how you can dispose of your trash when moving.
Regardless of the quantity of all the things you will be moving, do not underestimate the amount of trash you will generate during the whole moving process- the before, during, and after you pack and move. To fully prepare, you must create a plan to get rid of all the trash and junk you will uncover.
Boxes and plastics are the typical go-to’s when packing. But to cut back on the packaging material costs and needs, you might want to consider renting reusable plastic bins.
Think about easily recycled or repurposed cushioning materials too! Like fabrics, biodegradable air pillows, recyclable bubble wraps, string twines, newspapers, and packing papers. By using these, you can eliminate the need for plastic twines and foam packing peanuts.
Keep in mind that when using newspapers and magazines, be strategic with using them to wrap your belongings. Because they have ink, they can run, stain, or mark light-coloured items. If you can, only use them as cushioning. You can use tissue papers or plain packing papers for packing instead.
Start looking through everything you possess and get rid of everything you no longer use, need, or desire after you have your packing materials. This reduces the number of packaging materials you have to transport and the quantity of garbage you generate after unpacking. If you have a lot of furniture and equipment to get rid of, you might want to consider renting a dumpster from a waste removal company.
Packing supplies can pile up. After moving, you might be left with mountains of bubble wraps, crumbled papers, and flattened boxes. Unpacking can indeed generate piles of trash. When you find yourself in this situation, try doing these things:
Set up two recycling and waste bins and arrange them. Assign one for items that you need to throw away and the other for materials that you can still use. You can either donate, sell, or reuse the latter bin.
The container assigned for disposing of has to be neatly piled and organized. According to Tsishipping.com, labeling them with these will helps garbage, paper, biodegradable/composite materials (such as string or twine), cardboard, recyclable hard plastics, and other containers, and plastic bags and bubble wrap.
Throw away the items you can no longer use. If you have more items than fit in your normal trach, then call a dumpster rental near you to have them removed. You may also hire trash removal professionals to help you in your house cleanout.
Likewise, donate or resell any unused or gently-used packing materials and recycle or donate the ones you can still use.
Dispose of your trash by doing it systematically:
1. Lessen your trash by decluttering your belongings before packing.
2. Set up a waste station while unpacking.
3. Be strategic when disposing.
You can recycle, resell, space out garbage over a few collection dates, rent a dumpster, and take the trash to the landfill.
