Taking Advantage of Verge Collection Time

Verge collection time is once a year every state. It is the time where local councils collect bulk waste to help residents keep suburbs neat by discouraging illegal dumping of unwanted bulky household goods.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. During this time in communities’ people can get unwanted property from other people. It is a good time to give to other people and at the same time clearing their homes. In every household in Australia there are about 20 gadgets in use and every year there is a release of new versions. These are not easily disposable during the time but during verge collection these gadgets can be passed on to other people. A couple of years ago I managed to score myself a computer and single bed mattress during this time and helped save a lot.

During verge collection, it is a perfect time to clean up your house and store room. Most people store unwanted things during the year in their store rooms and these are often congested so this is a great time to clear them. It also allows one to clear the environment of any clutter hence making it safe especially for people with young children.

It is often expensive to dispose of nay large property such as beds and cookers. So, verge collection time is a great opportunity to dispose such things. Large properties also cannot be disposed through the normal bins as there is a limit regarding the weight of the bin and they should not be filled to the top.

80 percent of the things collected is made of material that can be recycled or reused. Recycling will save the environment for future generations and will help reduce the amount of natural resources to be extracted as material can be used repeatedly.

Every council have different dates for collection and this can be found on the websites and people should be aware of this so they can be prepared and take out their waste within the correct time. Generally, people should take out their waste a week before and not earlier or later giving it time to be collected. Verge collection is cost effective as you do not need to pay anything for collection and disposal. The councils are responsible for this. The councils also dispose the waste is the best safest way for the environment.

Why Hiring Skip Bins is Hip!

Rubbish are not normally associated with being trendy right? No way! But what if I say that we can make it hip! You see, when something is trendy – it catches on like wild fire. It will then turn into a habit that will be beneficial to our planet earth. Going straight to the point, I am talking about skip bin hire (links to a local Perth bin hire provider). In particular, how hiring skip bins at regular intervals can turn your home into a spotless and attractive place to live.

Now imagine if the whole neighbourhood picks up your habit, how clean would your street be? Not to mention the value of your house skyrocketing!

The advantages of hiring a skip bin are endless. Below are some of the positives of hiring a skip bin:

Efficient Waste Disposal

Skip bins comes in a variety of sizes, but even the smallest will still be a lot bigger than your average household wheelie bin. This mean getting a lot more waste in the one go. Space out the frequency of throwing waste out will go a long way that you would ever imagine.

Cost Effective

Hiring a bin may seem like a burden to your pockets, but if you consider the fee charged at your local rubbish tip – you will appreciate how cost effective hiring a bin could be. Just do the maths. Calculate the cost of hiring a bin and compare it against hiring let say a trailer and entrance fee to the tip. You’d be surprise how much savings there are to be made. Especially if you have the unusual waste such as asbestos.

Licensed for Dangerous Waste

As mentioned above, the disposal of certain type of waste such as asbestos requires special care. Skip bin hire companies are required to have a valid license for disposing such waste. What does it mean for you? Well to put it quite simply, you don’t have to worry about knowing how to handle such waste since they will dispose of it for you, the safe way!

The benefits mentioned above are not the only ones. There are many other reasons why it would be a good idea to hire a bin.

Since we briefly talked about how good it would be if the whole neighbourhood got into the action. Why not make a start on it this month! Go out there and hire a bin!

You’re Talking Rubbish!

Have someone told you that you’re talking rubbish? Well I must admit that people have said this so many times to me.. more that I’d like to admit. But to be honest with you, I don’t really care! Why you may ask? Well if you even cared to see what my blog is all about, then you will know exactly what I mean. Yep, my blog is all about rubbish. So I will literally talk about rubbish, even if you don’t think I’m talking garbage. Hope you know what I mean 🙂

On a serious note, I am passionate about preserving this world of ours. I know what you’re thinking… another greenie right? Well you can call me that if you like, but as long as you support in my lifelong journey of cleaning this world that we live in and providing the cleanest place for our future generation. If you have kids, than it should be easy for you to relate. Even if you don’t have kids, you can at least appreciate the message that I am trying to get across to my readers. People like yourself.

Talking about greenie; I believe you don’t have to be tying yourself to a tree or barricade the next ship coming to shore. Though if that’s what you want to do, then I can’t really stop you right? We can clean up this world through developing good habits in our day to day life. For example, plan your next spring clean by disposing of the unwanted junk around the house. For the stuff that is too good to throw away: sell it! See what I mean? You can even make money while cleaning up your place of residence.
