Shoveling snow or carrying a bag of trash down the stairs are tasks that many of us dread. The fear of twisting an ankle, or spilling garbage on oneself can keep some people away from these occasional burdens. But whether you’re humming a happy tune by the fireplace, or toiling in your office cubicle, there’s no denying that living in this world poses some tough challenges. Here are tips to help improve your daily routine.
Know Your Waste Disposal Needs
Many people only need to dispose of a few handfuls of trash each day. If you fall in this group, it may be practical to buy a small trash can with wheels and carry it down the stairs for regular disposal.
If your household generates larger quantities of trash, you may want to consider renting a dumpster. By renting one, you can easily toss a full bag or two into the dumpster and forget about waste disposal until your next pickup date arrives.
Consider a Dumpster for Business Waste
Large businesses often generate huge amounts of bulk waste that can’t fit in a standard trash can. When your business generates many tons of trash per week, a dumpster with built-in recycling capabilities is an attractive option. If you take up this option, consider renting the dumpster on an hourly basis to ensure you have sufficient space to handle all your trash and debris removal needs.
Keep Your Attic & Basement Clean
Many homeowners with limited space choose to store garbage bags in their attics and basements. If you have no other options, this will get the job done. However, it’s important to take precautions before storing your trash in these areas:
・ Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
・ Never leave your trash unsupervised for days at a time.
Make the Most of Your Efforts
Waste disposal can be high-impact activity. You’ll want to minimize your efforts by spreading them around the day. On a typical day, most people can fulfill their trash removal needs with a 10- to 15-minute walk. If you have extra garbage to remove, consider doing it on the way between one workout and the next. Or set the timer for five minutes and use the time for a quick jog instead.
