Australia is, unfortunately, one of the most wasteful countries anywhere in the developed world, but it’s not just us down under. The entire population of our planet is actually responsible for discarding a container ship full of rubbish every couple of hours. Just thinking about all that trash is disheartening in itself because the vast majority of it will end up in landfill.

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news. Australians everywhere who are passionate about protecting our beautiful country have already started signing up to fight in the war on waste. As a nation we need to come together as one and truly understand the negative effect that our excess rubbish has been having on the environment.

You too can help create a cleaner and greener community from the comfort of your home. It’s all about learning the 4 Rs of Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle. Now’s the time for all proud Australians to get the whole family involved. Start by reflecting on how we manage our waste, learning what goes in each bin, understanding where our trash goes, and teaching ourselves new green habits.

How To Clean Out Your House Room By Room

Clutter is a problem for us all. In fact, you don’t even need to be moving out or planning a renovation to notice too much of your stuff is cluttering up your house. Even larger size properties can still fill up with possessions and heaps of other stuff. Having all that extra mess around your home can very quickly become a very frustrating issue, especially when it comes to going through the mess to organise and remove it all.

That’s why as daunting as it may seem, regularly cleaning out your house room by room can have a massive impact on reducing the build-up of clutter. Before you start going through all the junk in each room, it’s always a good idea to take a step back first and figure out a plan of attack. Look at all of the items you have in each room and take note of what you want to keep and which items you’re most likely going to get rid of. Then you’ll need to think about how you’re going to discard the excess junk.

There are a number of different disposal options available, from normal wheelie bins, to council curb-side pick-up, to collection from a professional service like Cheapest Load Of Rubbish. In order to decide which one of these options will be most suitable for you is going to depend on how much junk you need discarded and whether you want it gone today, or you are okay waiting until your local council decides to arrange it.

No matter what rubbish collection method you decide to use, the first thing you need to do when you start cleaning out each room is to move everything you want to keep to another room. Then move anything that is obviously broken, damaged, and other junk outside to wherever your trash collection point is going to be. This includes throwing out all faulty furniture, broken appliances, junk accessories, and unsalvageable clothing to avoid accumulating future clutter and waste.

Remember that just because something isn’t working, doesn’t automatically mean that it is rubbish. This is where the 4 Rs of Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle come into play. In order to reduce the amount of waste on our planet, Cheapest Load of Rubbish will check if your junk can be reused or repurposed by a local charity first. If that’s not possible, we’ll then recycle whatever we can from your trash and finally we will discard whatever is left over at a local transfer station.

What To Do With Old Furniture, Electronics, White Goods

Most of our household appliances and furniture don’t last as long as they used to, despite how much money we spend on them. It seems that their quality has declined considerably over the last 50 years. Sometimes broken appliances get thrown in the trash, whereas others just get put somewhere “out of the way” so that we can “get it fixed one day” or just deal with it another day.

It doesn’t take long for these broken appliances to start taking up valuable storage room around your home, in the back of kitchen cupboards, under the laundry basin, and stacked on shelves in the garage. Which is such a waste, when many unused or faulty appliances can be repaired and reused, or donated so they can be repurposed and rehoused. Always remember the 4 Rs of Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle.

But when your appliances have definitely packed it in and are simply unrepairable, you can ask if the delivery company can remove the old one for free. If not, Cheapest Load of Rubbish is here to help. Many old and broken furniture, white goods, and electronics can be recycled by reusing their parts in other products. If not, they can be taken apart and recycled in other ways. If you’re not sure whether or not your old appliances can be repurposed or recycled, Cheapest Load of Rubbish can ensure they are removed and dealt with appropriately and safely.
