It is inevitable that over the years of inhabiting your house, your space will slowly begin to accumulate objects that you simply do not use or appreciate anymore. And gradually, they will start to fill your corners, creep further into your shelves, and take up more and more of your precious space.
Perhaps you’re not quite ready to classify these objects as rubbish just yet. There is a list of signs and situations, however, which do indicate you need to be tough, decide which objects are junk, and de-clutter the space. This is when you’ll need to hire a rubbish removal company.
- You walk into a room, and see unused furniture that you don’t like
Take a tour around your house right now, and scan over the room very slowly, like you are entering for the first time. Objectively ask yourself these following questions. What is the purpose of this furniture? When was the last time I used it? Does the style match the remainder of my house, and does it actually add value to this room?
Your answers should be plenty of guidance in whether you should keep the furniture or not. It is difficult to let go of large or expensive objects. You may have spent hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on this piece years ago. Perhaps it used to be a treasured sofa where you spent many nights watching Netflix or making memories with friends, or a mismatched table that you bought ad hoc from a market because you thought it was trendy. However, now the sofa is a battered retiree that squeaks when sat upon, and the table is a side-shouldered eyesore that does not belong here or there.
It’s time to say goodbye and call the rubbish removal company. This can be tough, but once the rubbish removal company clears it all up, you will feel a newfound freedom in the extra space.
- Objects frequently fall off your overflowing garage shelves
It is perhaps universal convention to shove any unwanted objects onto your garage shelf. Old shoes, chest drawers, old toys… the shelves feature an eclectic mixture of bits and bobs collected over the course of people growing and changing. It may bring back sentimental memories when you shift through the pile, but most likely, it is just an ever-growing pile of junk that really should go to the rubbish removal company. And who knows, with a local company for your rubbish removal, your objects may be recycled and be embraced in another environment.
- Backyard clean up
Aussie backyards should provide a space to relax and unwind. No matter the size of the backyard, you should be able to walk around your backyard and not be impeded by overgrown bushes or intrusive branches. If you have old trees or bushes with gangly branches that overhang and look like they may snap and drop anytime soon, you should get out the chainsaw and rid the safety hazard.
If there are trees casting long or large shadows over your property, it also may be a good idea to saw off some branches or lop the tree (in which case you need to consult the council). Overhanging branches can prevent sunlight from streaming into your backyard or house, making your house darker and less lively.
Gardening jobs frequently take a lot of time, and result in a lot of green debris. Green waste bins are only collected fortnightly in NSW, so calling in a rubbish removal company to clear up the garden would be a good idea. A rubbish removal company should come within a day, which means that the green waste does not have to sit on your lawn like an eyesore and irritate the neighbours.
If you are an environmentally conscious person, you will be grateful to know that a rubbish removal company does not dump everything into landfill. Rather, a rubbish removal company has designated recycling plants that help ease the issue of overflowing landfills.
De-cluttering is a cathartic process. In fact, cleaner and more spacious areas have been researched to lead to higher rates of productivity and creativity. No one likes working in a cluttered space – so maybe it’s time to consider an all-out clean-out. The rubbish removal company can take care of the rest.
