Clearing Up For Winter

It’s that time of year when households are preparing their properties for the winter. This includes the final clearing of the garden, getting rid of rubbish from garages and having a good clear out before the cold weather comes.

Depending on how much you must dispose of, will dictate whether you need a junk removal company to help. If it is just a carload of rubbish, then you can quite easily do this yourself and take this to your local recycling Centre.

Which Recycling Centre to Use

If you live on the border of two Local Authorities, then you are well advised to go to the one with the postcode where you pay your Council Tax. Many authorities will now require identification and proof of residence before you are able to unload and dispose of your rubbish.

Sorting Your Stuff

When you get to your Recycling Centre, you will be expected to sort and dispose of your items in specific skips. For example, this will be split between garden waste, metal, plastic, cardboard and paper and electronics.

Do not forget to allocate a reasonable amount of time to get this done. You cannot just pull up and dump all your stuff into a single skip. Also think about this when you are packing your vehicle. It is much easier if you pack this in sections, so you can then dump that particular material in the appropriate bin.

When you get to your Recycling Centre, in some cases the bins will be some distance apart. Therefore, you do not want to be carrying items or bags of rubbish some distance across the recycling Centre, to deposit them in the appropriate bin. It is much easier to pull up to the specific skip and then move to the next one.

Other Considerations When Visiting Your Recycling Centre

Weekends are generally very busy. If you can take your rubbish during the week, then this will save you time. Often you can check online for opening times and busy periods.

Only for Domestic Rubbish

Another thing to remember is that your local recycling Centre is for domestic rubbish only. If you pull up in a commercial vehicle, then you will be turned away. This will be considered commercial rubbish. Even if you have just borrowed the van to take your stuff to the Centre and everything it contains is domestic and household rubbish.

Operating Hours

Generally recycling Centres have long opening hours. But it is worth checking on your Council website exactly what these are. There are normally many operatives who can assist and guide you on where particular items are to be disposed of. Also, if you have any working items that are recyclable, for example electronics such as TV’s, then there will be places for these to go. These will then be disposed of appropriately by the Centre.

Handy Things to Have in the Car

When you are disposing of household rubbish, it is always handy to have a few items in the car. These make the job easier. These include a pair of workman's gloves, as well as a brush, to brush out your car after it has been emptied. Also, a very handy piece of kit is a tarpaulin to place in the back of your car, before filling it. Once you have disposed of your rubbish, then you can just pull this tarpaulin out, shake it out folded up and put it away. This saves time and avoids damage to your car.

These are just a few tips when visiting a Recycling Centre, which is generally considered to be a dirty job but makes it much easier. If you decide that you want some help, then Junk Removal Wirral can assist.
