We can feel it, the weather has turned. Spring has finally come to Southern Ontario, if the blooming flowers and budding trees weren’t enough of an indicator the streets lined with various sizes, makes and models of trucks should tip you off.

Contractors and tradespeople of every ilk may argue the title of this article, and you’d have a point to say your finished product is the best billboard. Thing is, your company sign isn’t going to stay up forever. Sooner or later that back deck, veranda or beautifully landscaped front yard will speak for itself and the only advertisement you will get from that work will be the client’s own testimony. This will be intermittent at best.

While we take pride in being a reputable waste disposal and hauling company serving Southern Ontario, don’t think for a minute we’re not BIG fans of recycling too.

The vast majority of people all across Canada are fully onboard with the aim to minimize their waste disposal and recycle products as much as possible.

What to do with a Frozen Garbage Bin Lid?

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.

But there are good reasons why a homeowner might want to use a disposal bin. When you use disposable bins, you don’t have to wait a whole week for your rubbish to be collected. Instead you can schedule a pickup with Load’n Lift who will collect your mountain of garbage all at the same time.

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!
