Does accumulated junk make you feel nervous? The rubbish removal process is so much easier (and safer) when you plan ahead. Here’s what we’ve learned from our 30 years of experience in the waste management sector.
Prepare and Plan Ahead
Begin by taking a walk around your house/office. Do you have any objects that have just been sitting around and taking up space for years? The old couch that’s been sitting in the attic since you got married 20 years ago is probably not serviceable anymore—and maybe it’s time to consider adding it to the rubbish pile. The more you can remove in one go, the better value for money.
Once you’ve made a list of all the items you want removed, try to assemble your rubbish somewhere accessible near the main road (e.g., front yard, parking lot). It’ll be much easier for the waste management company to dispose of your trash safely that way. If that’s not possible, make sure you label said items correctly and leave plenty of room to allow free movement in and out of your space.
Sort Your Waste Properly
Most households only ever deal with rubbish that is easy to remove and recycle. If, however, you also want to get rid of metal, cement, bricks, and other heavy materials, you need to make sure you communicate early with your waste management company.
Different materials are disposed of in different ways, which is why appropriate sorting is so important. If you think your waste collection may contain hazardous waste, you need to let your company know.
JBM can help you with all kinds of waste disposal services, including metal recycling, hazardous waste removal, and garden waste collection.
Break Down Large Items
You don’t have to break down large items if you can’t or don’t want to, but doing so will significantly speed up the waste disposal process. Rubbish removal specialists can remove trash from your property much faster when it’s broken down into smaller—and more manageable—pieces.
Pick the Right Skip
Calculating the size of your trash and picking the right skip isn’t always easy—especially before you’ve had a chance to make a list and assemble your junk. A 4-yard skip is usually more than enough for most DIY projects and garden clean-ups, but it all depends on your specific needs.
These rough numbers can help:
JBM’s 2-yard skip is equivalent to 6.5 wheelie bins of waste.
The 3-yard skip is equivalent to 9.5 wheelie bins.
The 4-yard skip is equivalent to 13 wheelie bins.
JBM’s biggest skip (8 yards) can hold approximately 26 wheelie bins of waste. Taking pictures of your rubbish from different angles can help professionals better estimate the ideal skip size.
It goes without saying that choosing an experienced waste management crew is essential for a quick and safe job.
