Load N Lift 012

It’s January 2017, and as always the New Year finds us right in the middle of winter here in Canada. Even the folks out West are experiencing sub-zero temperatures. Folks east of BC will likely already be aware of most of what there is to know about taking out the trash when it’s freezing outdoors, but let’s have a look at one of the most common problems homeowners encounter from December to March when it comes to trash disposal in wintertime.

Trash bin lids that are frozen shut.

This of course can be problematic on a pair of levels; A) you can’t open the bin to add additional trash, and B) you’re passing on that same problem to the municipal collection workers when you take it to the curb just as frozen as it was aside your garage.

Trash it, or Recycle It? Being a Responsible Disposer in 2017

loadnliftarticle

No matter which city you’re living in, the local landfill would prefer to have as little as possible brought to its doorstep when it comes to waste material. Anything that can be recycled really should be, as keeping municipal waste down to a minimum is something every city should be striving for.

So the question becomes not only what are the best ways to dispose of waste material responsibly, but also what less-than-obvious materials can be recycled rather than thrown away? Let’s have a look at some of them and make you a little bit better informed about waste materials that AREN’T necessarily trash.

Why do people use disposal bins when municipal waste pick-up is available?

Most people think of disposal bins as items only used by large businesses and not typical homeowners. After all, homeowners can put their trash on the curb each week and thanks to their Toronto municipal taxes, that junk is picked up and carried away.

The Argument Against Clutter: Comfort, Creativity and Peace of Mind

Junk Removal Trenton

Is it high time to clear out excess items from you home, get rid of junk, or haul a load to the dump?

Many folks might not be aware of it, but a cluttered home – or any area of it – can have a seriously negative effect on any number of aspects of your mental state. Often it’s difficult for homeowners to make the decision about what stays and what goes, and that’s true even for those of us who aren’t what they call “hoarders.”

When you only have so much square footage in your home, however, it’s pretty common to have to make those tough decisions. Studies have shown that a home that is cleaner, tidier, and features more open space is increasingly conducive to people being creative, emotionally responsive, thinking objectively, and enjoying peace of mind and a greater sense of being entirely comfortable and relaxed. There’s even more in the way of benefits to having an uncluttered home – but those ones alone should be convincing enough!
