Home Renovating Tips – Dealing with the Waste
Renovating your home can be a big task—but it is a task worth doing. You will be able to enjoy the renovations now, and it will add value to your home when you get ready to sell it. However, one thing that you will need to be aware of when completing any renovation job is that it will generate waste. Luckily, there are a few ways that you can efficiently dispose of your renovation waste to prevent it from becoming a problem. We’ve put together a few tips that will help you with waste removal.
Repurpose – Repurposing old materials into something brand new is not only an eco-friendly way to rid yourself of a waste problem, but it is also very trendy. Spend some time browsing Pinterest and you are sure to find some great ideas for reusing those old materials—there may be more options available than you thought.
Donate – For the items you cannot use yourself, but are still in good shape, consider donating them to a worthy charity. One, in particular, you may wish to consider is Habitat for Humanity; however, many other organizations can also use household items like cabinets, countertops, and flooring.
The Dump Isn’t All Bad – Taking things to the dump is not as difficult or as bad as you may think it is. In many areas, the dump offers you the chance to recycle items that would qualify. For those items that are not recyclable, you will usually have to sort the material and leave it in a marked bin or area.
Contact Your Waste Removal Service – Your regular waste removal service may collect certain items in the weekly trash pickup. However, it is important that you talk to a representative before you fill your can—just in case you are trying to dispose of items that require special handling.
Rent a Roll-Off or Bin – Your local waste removal company likely offers bin rental. If you are completing a larger renovation project, this can be an easy way to deal with the unusable waste that is left behind. Check out the different sizes and styles available to discover what would be best for your task.
Hire a Professional – If all else fails, let someone else take care of the waste for you. Many companies specialize in waste removal. Get in touch with a local firm and find out what services are available. In some cases, this may be more affordable than you think.
