How to Get Rid of Holiday Trash

holiday trashDuring the holidays and at the end of the year, many of us realize that we have more trash lying around than we thought. Whether you’re gearing up for a large holiday gathering or getting to really see what’s in the garage when you go to get the holiday decorations, you may notice that you need to call in some reinforcements.

Tips on How to Get Rid of Holiday Trash

Planning to throw it all in your regular garbage pickup isn’t going to cut it. Many municipalities have rules about what they’ll take during regular garbage pickup. Even if your garbage falls into the regular pick-up items, you may just have too much to put by the curb. That leaves you wondering what to do with all of your holiday trash. We have some useful tips on how to get rid of holiday trash so you can start off the new year fresh.

Donate Any Items in Good Condition

As you sort through the items you don’t want, see if any are in good enough condition to be donated. You may come across some items that may not necessarily fall into the “trash category”. These are items that can be donated to a local charity and put to good use by someone in need.

Repurpose Items

If you come across some items that are still in decent condition and worth keeping, you may want to see if they can be repurposed. You may find an old chest that just needs to be re-sanded to get back into pristine shape. This could be an example of something that you can repurpose. You may also come across other items that you can use as decoration or outside in your garden. Think out of the box before you put it in a box to be thrown away!

Rent a Dumpster

This allows you to have a convenient place to throw your trash right on your property. You don’t have to lug it to the dump or find somewhere else to dispose of it. You just walk out of your house and throw it in your dumpster.

Assessing how much trash you’re going to have is going to be essential. You don’t want to rent a dumpster too large, but you also don’t want to get one so small that you’re done filling it in a few hours. 

A residential dumpster rental can come in handy if you’re having a lot of people over for the holidays. If you’re expecting a lot of trash to be produced over the holidays and don’t want to deal with the headaches of going to put bags out all the time, a dumpster can do the trick. You also don’t want to deal with post-holiday food garbage lying all over the place or any broken items lying around. We all know that things around the house can get broken when you have a lot of people over the holidays! It’s much easier to throw these things away safely in a dumpster.

Residential dumpster rentals are convenient because you can not only decide where you want to put the dumpster, but also how long you need to keep it, and when you want it emptied. Plus, you don’t have to worry about any trash lying around causing a hazard and an unsightly mess. Everything can be neatly and safely placed inside the dumpster.
