Refuse, waste, rubbish, junk, trash, whatever you choose to call it, remains a huge problem everywhere with more and more being generated every year. Our homes have to be kept clean and rubbish-free for our family’s health and well-being. Our neighbourhoods would soon degenerate into an unhealthy mess if our councils stopped their rubbish removal. It goes without saying that our priority should be keeping our immediate environment clean and pollution-free. Junk Removal Wirral is your local refuse collection and disposal company you can call at any time when you have waste to be collected.
By now we are hopefully recycling where we can and reducing our household waste as much as possible. The best option is to avoid waste and reach a zero-waste lifestyle. While not impossible, it requires commitment. Reusing products as often as possible will cut down significantly on the amount of trash you throw out. Reusing glass jars and bottles or using your plastic containers again is a good place to start. Recycling is the process whereby we separate our household waste according to the different types of material. This is still the most environmentally friendly way of dealing with our domestic refuse of paper, glass, plastic, and metal cans if we are unable to reach the goals of zero waste.
The good news on the recycling front is that previously unrecyclable materials are now able to be recycled due to technological advancements. So for example, items like glossy magazines can now be recycled.
Metal has a high economic value which makes it the product that has the highest rate of recycling in the UK. Aluminum cans (the ones that contain your favourite fizzy drink) and steel cans (baked beans, tomatoes and soup are amongst the products that come in these) are the two most often used by householders and therefore the most common found in household waste. Because of their properties, these metals can be smelted and reused indefinitely as their qualities do not change when they are reworked. In fact, they can be reprocessed and be back on the shelf within two months. This process is eco-friendly in that not only does it remove cans from polluting the environment, but it also reduces the need for mining of the raw materials and thus protects the natural resources.
Plastic. By far the most common waste item found in our household junk is plastic. It is important to rinse and clean plastic before recycling it. Most domestic plastic such as bottles, wrappers, and bags, are made of 3 types of plastic which makes it easier to recycle. Bottles and plastic jars are the easiest to recycle, but it is worth noting that some plastic packaging such as fruit or vegetable plastic sacks should not be placed in recycling containers. Unfortunately, most of our plastic still ends up in the landfill, and ultimately in rivers and oceans.
Glass. Glass needs to be separated by colour and will be used to manufacture bottles of the same colour, so different coloured bottles need to be recycled separately. Make sure that all glass containers are clean and free from food waste.
It is not easy dealing with waste when you live in an apartment as you have to consider the other residents that live there. There are many rules to follow in communal living, especially relating to noise. There are also rules to follow as to what you can and cannot do.
You may plan to carry out some minor renovations in your kitchen or bathroom, which will definitely generate an amount of construction waste that will need to be removed. Before you even begin, you will need to find out the do’s and don’ts of where rubble can be left before being collected, or if you are hiring a tip, where it may be parked. There is also the noise issue which may affect your neighbours, but you will have to follow the guidelines governing this matter.
Construction waste is not something that every local council remove, so you may need a private waste management company to take it away if your council doesn’t offer this service.
Junk Removal Wirral offers a same-day rubbish removal service to assist with cleaning your area daily which means the waste will not collect over a few days and get out of hand. We also clean up after ourselves, leaving the area we have collected from neat and tidy. This could be an effective way of solving the problem of neighbours getting annoyed with the accumulation of your waste. We make sure that we remove your waste efficiently, leaving nothing behind. By being thorough we will keep the other residents of your complex happy.

Our aim is to keep our immediate environment clean and pollution-free by recycling where we can and only using the landfill as a last resort. We encourage our community to reduce the amount of rubbish they generate, recycle where possible and be responsible about their waste management.
