You should actively participate in waste management practises not only for the environment but for your health and that of your family. Below is a small guide for proper waste management in the household.
Order rubbish removal services frequently
One mistake most people make is wanting to manage waste on a budget. That means that they will wait until their garbage bins are full to the brim before they can ask for rubbish removal services. This is highly frowned upon because waste that has been exposed to heat, cold and other weather elements tends to decompose very fast. As such, it will be a source of odours and a breeding ground for irritating and pathogen carrying pests. Your children may suffer allergies from the bad smells and they may contract all kinds of diseases. Frequent rubbish removal is essential for a clean, healthy and happy home.
Cover garbage bins
While you are waiting for the next rubbish removal day, make sure to have the garbage bins covered at all times. This will prevent pets and other animals from playing with the rubbish. It will also minimize the chances of the trash being blown around your front yard or towards the street. If you are hiring garbage bins from your rubbish removal company, insist on the ones with covers.
Spray insecticides over the bins
If you notice an unusual swarm of flies hanging around your garbage bins, make sure to spray some insecticides over them. Chances are, their laid eggs have hatched or they are in the process of breeding. If the flies make your front yard a breeding ground they will never leave as long as you place your garbage bins at the same spot. Call your rubbish removal services to come and evacuate the garbage and stay at least two days before putting any more garbage there. If the flies do not leave after this, call and exterminator and find a different garbage spot.
Remove bins from rain and excess heat
If you have placed the trash in a place exposed to excess heat or heavy rainfall, it will do you good to remove them. This is because extreme weather elements create reactions which lead to hastened decomposition. If your rubbish removal date is not yet due, keep your bins under some cover. Whether it is under tree shade or below the garage door raft. This will save you the money of calling for rubbish removal services every day. It will also reduce the chances of pest invasion.Share
