Instead of worrying about waste, perhaps it’s time we get excited about it. While you may think that’s a hard one to believe, don’t: there are many of us that love waste and make a living out of it. Not that we expect you to drop everything and start scrummaging around in your waste to see what the excitement is about: instead let’s discuss a few ideas that are exciting others.
Managing waste is a tough job. Its messy and thankless, never ending and appears to be on the increase. Because waste comes in all kinds of forms, it needs to be treated by people who are in the know. And therefore, all waste handlers must be licenced to do this.
As a licensed service provider picking up your junk in your community, we at Junk Removal Wirral deal with all these different categories of junk every day. Whether it’s rubbish collection in Wirral and surrounds, rubbish removal from business or complicated, dirty junk disposal of most kinds of waste, we do this on a day-to-day basis.
While this isn’t exciting work, we get excited every time we clean up a home, a business, or an environment, as the waste we dispose is done in a responsible way and ultimately, we know that what we do is for the good of our community.
Speaking of community, we like to support the work that community groups do when they get involved in community waste projects. This is where we have noticed others that get excited about waste, and here’s why:
After being isolated for so long recently, many people are getting back into the social mix with a vengeance. The great thing about living in a community is the friends and associates you get to know and trust. A thriving community offers many different activities, from sport to leisure pastimes to social events.
Then you get people who are always doing something for the community on a voluntary basis. Whether it’s looking after the frail, providing food for orphans, or helping the marginalised. All these are done the good of someone’s heart and is truly commendable.
Doing something for the environment is equally applaudable. This is because one is doing it for the benefit of others and nature, the latter which can’t do anything about the likes of pollution and waste build up.
In Wirral and across the UK groups of community minded people have come together to get involved in waste projects. These are not about managing waste, but rather finding creative uses for waste. Backed by the National Community Fund, it has given many people a chance to find alternate uses for products and materials that otherwise would have been thrown away.
Getting involved in these community waste projects is easy, as there will always be a few leaders that are looking for you and others to add to their group to involve themselves in this worthwhile cause. Let’s take a look at what happens when you join such a group.
The great thing with waste is that much of it can be used again, either in its current form, like an old couch that’s been replaced for a new one, or it can be transformed into something else, like a bottle which serves as a base for a lampshade.
Clothes, including children’s clothes, always seem to be able to be recycled and used again, and if you are the type of person who feels for the plight of our fellow humans, then initiatives like collecting clothes for the likes of the poor or refugees are really worthy causes. Local charities in Wirral are known for their collection of textiles and used furniture, which when assembled make up sizable loads that can be taken to those in vulnerable positions.
Starting with a good intention in mind, by collecting these sort of items, local movements have helped further the ideals of recycling and reuse of goods that would otherwise have been relegated to a landfill.
The encouraging thing about this sort of activity is that there are many opportunities to beneficiate waste products. By joining a team of like-minded people in the community who wish to create stuff out of waste, it is surprising what good ideas are generated. The resources that are available are enormous, glass, paper, cardboard, plastic to detail a few.
Who knows, what starts out as a small idea can grow into something large and become a sustainable business. Like those that make fashioned jewellery or household accessories like table mats, lampshades, and the like out of recycled waste.
Or those that establish a “fix-up” factory that renovates junk that is collected at garage sales, supplied by people who are only too pleased to offload their junk to a worthy cause-for free
Our staff at Junk Removal Wirral are devoted to the reduction in waste in your area of the Wirral and surrounds. Every effort to reduce and recycle should be recognized, no matter how small. The increasing numbers of people who get involved in waste projects is admirable.
By joining up with organizers and movements that do good by relieving waste holders of their burden and add value to the waste or to the lives of others are true community assets.
If you would like to get involved and can’t find a project, let us know at Junk Removal Wirral and our friendly staff will point you in the right direction. Making good out of rubbish requires some innovative thinking and is an inspiring past time.
If you have some good ideas, then we encourage you to bring them to a group of like-minded volunteers, all with the same in mind.
