Important Protocols When Dealing with Waste at Home

We can’t do much about the waste we generate at home, and across the country everyone, every day is consuming foodstuffs, buying new things, and producing waste. It all needs to be removed from households, which happens every week when the Council comes around. 

Think of the dumpster crushing your waste, then the neighbour, then going further down the road until the truck is full of everyone’s waste. 

The chances are good that the dumpster goes straight to the landfill where it’s mixed into the soil and compacted. Here it will stay forever, rendering that piece of land useless for a considerable time to come. This isn’t an environmentally friendly practice, and landfills, rightly, are considered to one of the contributors to global warming.

Our point in all of this is that there are ways to be more careful about waste, starting at waste collection and ending up with how it is disposed. Call it junk, rubbish, or waste it’s generally all the same. At Junk Removal Wirral our services are designed to provide rapid junk and rubbish removal in Wirral and surrounding areas. 

Our advice to households is to think about your rubbish and how it is arranged before you do your rubbish removal. There are several protocols that you can follow in order to make your waste removal more effective and relevant at home. 

Be Prepared to Separate 

We all like to have a clean home, and it is ill advised to have a lot of waste accumulated in your household. This especially applies to leftovers like food waste and liquids that tend to aid the deterioration of the waste materials. 

It also attracts vermin and other pests that can breed rapidly and remain in your space long after the waste collection has been done. 

Generally, waste can be separated into three streams initially: recycling waste, garden waste and general waste. Hazardous waste that could be toxic or dangerous to health should be deal with separately. 

At Junk Removal Wirral we don’t not have a license to handle hazardous materials. So, what this implies is that we are not permitted to transport any of the following:

  • Pressurized canisters such as aerosols and fire extinguishers.
  • Any items that are flammable such as diesel, paraffin, paint, or petrol. 
  • Loose domestic refuse that is not in refuse bags
  • Any raw products like chicken, fish, or meat
  • Medical waste and contaminated PPE and biological waste.
  • Toxic substances, chemicals considered dangerous and certain solvents 

That’s no reason to consider dumping your rubbish illegally. Just give us a call for any advice you need regarding your junk and rubbish removal of these kinds of materials. 

Disposing of Glass

Depending on whether your glass is broken or not, there are different disposal methods. Whole glass can be disposed of in three ways: 

  • Take to a recycling centre where they are equipped to deal with it
  • Give it to a waste removal service provider like our company at Junk Removal Wirral and we will dispose of it correctly
  • Donate it to charity in places where they add value to whole glass, such as in the manufacture of items like lampshades. 

Broken glass is treated differently and needs to be handled with care. Best is to put it in double walled outdoor junk bag where it can’t do damage, and then into the general waste bin. 

Some glass cannot be recycled such as mirrors, windscreens, medical glass, or mirrors, whether in good state or bad. 

Disposing of Plastic 

You may need some time to study the different kinds of plastic, as they are not all the same. This makes recycling a bit of a challenge, but when you get the hang of it, it’s all worthwhile.

Broadly plastic that can be recycled at the normal recyclers are not “scrunchable”. What does that mean? 

Soft plastics commonly called dirty flags when they get caught on a fence in the wind consist of plastic shopping bags, plastic food packaging and any other plastic that you can curl up in your hand. Unfortunately, these are the culprits that are seen mostly in landfills. 

Plastic drinking bottles can be separated into clear, opaque and coloured for the sake of making it easier for the recycler. Try and rinse bottles that could have contained the likes of detergents or hair conditioner before placing into the recycling bag. 

Plastic is a big enemy of our environment, and we should be aware of the dangers it causes when disposed of irresponsibly. 

Here are some additional methods of disposal: 

  • Upcycling is a brilliant way to counter this threat, because it is a term that is given when the method of turning a plastic item into something else that is useful, thereby giving it a second life.
  • Incineration is effective in getting rid of plastic waste, but it is a dangerous way to do it because of the toxins given off in the process of doing so. 
  • Netting of plastic in rivers to stop the spread of plastic waste into sea, where it will remain forever and be harmful to sea life.
