If you love to spring clean, then you will know just how expensive it can be to rid your home of bulky rubbish. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to reduce the cost of clearing out your junk. It’s all about knowing what it is, where it goes, and whether it can be used again as something else or by someone else.
Can You Reuse It?
Before you ditch it at the dump, you need to ask yourself whether the item can be repurposed for your use. Will a coat of paint and a move to somewhere else in your home breathe new life into the item? You never know what you can upcycle.
Or, if someone else can make use of it. If the item is clean and works, then it is an easy yes. For larger items, the charity may send a van to collect your haul. If it’s possible someone could repair it, you can make sure it gets to the right place. Your old gadget could find a new home somewhere, even if it’s three console generations ago. Of course, you can also sell it to earn a bit of extra cash, but it will take more time and effort.
A Removal Company
There are two different options when dealing with removal companies. You can choose between a rubbish removal company that carts all your junk off. Or, you could go with a house clearance company. The latter will take all of your junk and sell it off.
A Tip Trip
The cheapest way to dump your junk is to load up your vehicle and make a trip to the tip. Generally, it’s under $100 for local residents with a car. However, if you have or rent a ute to make your tip trip, you may be knocked back or charged more for the pleasure. There are different rules for trade waste, which you may fall prey to when driving a van.
Your local council provides a bulk waste collection service. This service is for household items, such as appliances, furniture, carpets, and mattresses. You need to book a collection and leave your waste on the curb the evening before collection. Be sure to follow the rules because you can be fined if you leave out banned items.
Break it Down and Sort It
When you call a rubbish removal company, they will provide you with a quote based on the volume and type of rubbish you have. So, to save cash, you can break it down and dismantle light furniture to take up less space. If it looks like it can be broken down and you have the time and energy to do so, do it as it will save you money. Sorting your rubbish into waste types will also help to keep your price down.
If you are renovating your home, you can speak to the contractors about removing waste for free. This is something you will need to discuss before you sign on the dotted line. Otherwise, they’ll try to tack on an extra charge or just leave you with it when they’re done. Make rubbish removal part of the deal.
