Making Space In Your Garbage Can

After we started cleaning out our basement, I was blown away with the amount of trash that we came across. There were loads and loads of extra items that we didn't need anymore, and it was really frustrating. I started focusing on making more space in our trashcan, and I was really impressed with how much extra room a few smart moves made. We started nesting garbage items inside of paint buckets, and breaking down boxes carefully. This blog is dedicated to helping homeowners to make better use of the space they have inside of their trashcans. You never know, you might be able to enjoy more free space inside of your home.

How To Recycle Old Materials From A Construction Job


If you are planning on remodeling a room in your house or you have purchased a fixer-upper that you want to flip, you are probably going to end up with a lot of used or leftover materials. What you can do, instead of throwing it all away in a dumpster, is to consider construction recycling. To help you understand how you can do just that, you will want to check out the following:

Plastics And Metal Go To The Recycling Center 

If you are renovating a kitchen or bathroom and you have some plastic or metal pipes that are no longer able to be used, you will want to send them to a recycling company. This way, those materials are kept out of the landfill and they are able to be recycled into something else that can be useful to people. Another nice thing to consider is that a lot of recycling companies will give you some money for your recyclables. It might not be much, but it's worth it.

Offer Up Free Supplies

If you are ripping out old kitchen cabinets, flooring, doors, or anything else that is still technically in good shape, you might want to offer them up for free to anyone in need. This allows others to upgrade what they have or it allows them to replace something faulty without having to spend money. This is great for those who might be on a tight budget and cannot go purchase new, expensive materials at a hardware or home improvement store. By donating what you can, you are not just helping others, but keeping more stuff out of the landfill. You might not even have to go through the hassle of listing the construction materials online. You might be able to just set them out in front of your house with a sign indicating that they are free. You might be surprised at how quickly all of those materials will suddenly vanish.

When you have a better understanding of how you can approach construction recycling, you will be able to save a lot of stuff from going to the landfill. The more materials saved, the better it is for everyone. Not only does this help protect the environment, but it can be a help to those who need repairs done but cannot afford brand new materials. The better you get at finding different ways to recycle the old construction materials and supplies, the less you will have to throw them into a dumpster. This means that you might actually be able to get away with renting a smaller, more affordable dumpster.
