The complete guide to waste management
December 30, 2017
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The ultimate waste management mantra.
We’ve all hear it and we all try to stick to it too. The problem is that it does not stick for long and returning to sloppy ways of doing things seems so much easier. So here is a guide to how you can incorporate these good habits into your lifestyle for good.
Plan, plan and plan
The thing about planning is that people are expected to do so much of it at work that bringing it home could feel like a drag.
But once you’ve incorporated a planned approach, you will notice a visible and long-term
difference in your consumption and waste management patterns.
Recycling can be done at home, by your local council and several private organisations in the United Kingdom. All you have to do is to be aware of what can be recycled, how and where. Things, like segregating waste streams and recycling it in the correct way will come naturally as soon as you know the rules. Go to the ClickaSkip.co.uk and get the best offers.
The more you know, the more motivated you will be!
The best way to reduce usage is to reduce wastage, especially those items that are disposable and can be used only once. Leave a good mug to have tea in the office instead of using the plastic cups there, use cloth or paper bags for grocery shopping, or carry folding bags in your backpack or purse so you can use them for unexpected purchases. This will not only save money by not having to buy additional bags but also help you reduce wastage and make shopping more convenient too.
Don’t store unwanted items.
The bulkiest things that are collected in skips are pieces of furniture that might have been reused but were not stored right. Instead of keeping unwanted furniture and appliances for a while just in case you need them, letting them get damaged and then throwing them away pass them to someone who can use them straight away. Or the value will diminish significantly and the chance of reuse become much smaller.Simple things like removing fire labels from the
furniture can make it impossible to reuse.
Pass it on
There are multiple charities that will come right up to your house to collect things that can be used by people who are less fortunate. You don’t have to spend money on disposing of things when you can donate them just as easily. Find a new home for your unwanted furniture straight away or put them in a skip hired from ClickaSkip to dispose of them as early as possible.
