The holiday season is over, and with the end of festivities comes a colossal amount of waste. This is especially true if you have a full house of family and friends over during the holiday season when life seems suspended by end-of-year work parties, shopping, cooking, and gatherings with loved ones.
It’s no wonder your home or office is littered with yard waste and hazardous materials. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for collection day to dispose of your trash. Commercial junk removal companies like West Coast Property Maintenance can help you with junk removal and waste management after the holidays.
Reasons to Hire Professional Junk Removal
Most homeowners or building managers often find themselves wondering: should I use trash hauling services near me? The short answer is yes. In this brief guide, we’ll explore how professional trash-hauling services can be beneficial for you.
There are eight ways in which junk removal services can benefit residential customers after the holidays.
1. Boxes, Boxes & Boxes
There’s nothing like a gift-giving holiday to produce piles of boxes, not to mention mountains of wrapping paper. Where does it all go? Closets that are already full to bursting? Stacks in the garage? An overflowing recycling bin?
How long does it take you to finally get rid of them? A couple of weeks or months, or do you suddenly realize you have no more space when the next holiday season rolls on?
Trash hauling services will take the unwanted junk off your hands, and what’s more, they will ensure that recyclable items are taken to a recycling center.
2. Holiday Junk
Holiday-related junk includes your christmas tree, broken christmas decorations, egg-nog cartons, empty bottles of wine and other alcohol bottles, tins of beer and cold drinks, etc. The bottles and tins can be recycled, but the Christmas tree presents the biggest problem. It’s big, it’s bulky, and it’s an awkward size. Make it someone else’s problem. Turn it over to trash-hauling companies that will gladly take it off your hands.
3. New For Old
Your new presents must go somewhere, preferably where you can see them and will be reminded to use them. What if the place for the new presents is occupied by old stuff you can’t get rid of? Do the responsible thing and dispose of the old stuff to make way for the new.
The great thing about junk hauling services is that they take things like old game consoles, old TVs, out-of-date laptops, and Kindles and ensure they are given a new lease on life as second-hand items. If items aren’t salvageable, then your junk remover will carry out television disposal and dispose of electronic waste correctly.
The same applies to old clothes, books, DVDs, and furniture items like sofas and coffee tables. If it still has some life left, let recycling services put it to good use elsewhere.
4. De-Clutter Your Closet
Getting rid of holiday junk and recycling stuff will give you back some of the space in your home, but what about the other stuff, the clutter that has accumulated over the past year or several years, if you’ve got a bit of hoarder in you?
Now is the perfect time to go through your closets and other storage areas and get rid of everything you don’t use anymore. Try to be thorough. If you haven’t used your foot spa from seven years ago, you’ll probably never use it. Put it on the ‘gotta go’ pile.
Encourage your children to do the same with their toys. Your eight-year-old is probably not going to do puzzles for children three and up anymore. There’s a three-year-old out there who would love to put it together. This way, you can encourage generosity and selflessness in your children while also tidying up your home.
A junk hauling and trash removal company will ensure that the items get to the right place.
All of the decluttering will open up space you forgot you had. Suddenly your car fits into the garage, where it’s much safer than out on the driveway or road. Your ‘junk’ room can become a home office or library or return to its original purpose as a spare bedroom.
6. Save Time
Instead of loading up your car or truck with all your holiday junk and other bags of trash and making several trips to disposal facilities, you just have to put your junk in front of your house or commercial business, and the professional junk removal service provider hauls it away for you.
Not only does this save you time, but it also saves you gas and ensures that your car or truck isn’t damaged by any heavy or awkwardly-shaped items headed to the landfill site.
7. Avoid Injury
Injuries happen so quickly, and they can occur doing the simplest things. Your back could easily be injured when you’re doing some heavy lifting to get items into your car or truck. You could step awkwardly on a step and sprain your ankle.
Professional junk haulers know precisely how to carry and maneuver bulky and heavy trash items without risk of injury.
8. Reduce Risks at Home
Having piles of junk around your home can be hazardous, especially if they are precariously stacked or truly crammed into their space. Someone accidentally bumping into the stack could bring it down on their head. Trying to remove an item from a cramped space could also bring the lost crashing down.
Then there is the risk of pest infestation. Old boxes and paper attract cockroaches, and heaps of clothes attract clothes moths. You don’t want either of these or any other pests making themselves at home in your home.
