Regarding domestic waste disposal, the old saying, “out of sight, out of mind” is no longer applicable and we all have a duty to do what we can to reduce the amount of waste we generate. At Cherry Hill Waste, we like to think we’ve perfected the art of waste recycling and if you would like to reduce your domestic waste, here are a few great ideas to make your home greener.
- Sorting Domestic Waste – Whether it be glass, plastic, metal, paper or any other material, the chances are it can be recycled and if you have some room in the garage or shed, a few clearly marked containers can be used to store the various materials. You could also delegate a corner of the garden for your recycle bins, and while it might take a few minutes to separate waste into different categories, the result is worth it. We have a range of domestic skip sizes and once you have collected enough, give us a call and we’ll deliver a suitably sized skip for you to fill.
- Old Devices and Appliances – That old desktop computer or broken smartphone can be recycled, which is a far better solution than the local landfill. Old analogue TVs are fast being replaced with digital flat screen units and these are certainly items that can be recycled. Before you call your local waste disposal company, it is a good idea to investigate their recycling policy, just to make sure that the waste will, in fact, be recycled. You can store any unwanted device until you carry out the annual spring clean and when you have an adequate amount of waste, we’ll be only too happy to recycle it.
- Batteries – Lithium batteries should be disposed of responsibly, as should non-rechargeable batteries that we all use frequently to power our devices. Keep them in a small box or bag and the next time you order a skip from Cherry Hill Waste, we will make sure the batteries are responsibly recycled. Car batteries are also recyclable and rather than leaving it to rot in a corner of the garage, add it to your recycling pile, but make sure you keep it separate from other waste.
- Gardening Waste – This is called green waste and yes, it can be recycled. Most people think that natural waste can simply be buried in a landfill, after all, it is natural waste, yet it can cause a reaction underground, which could pollute the surrounding environment. At Cherry Hill Waste, we are happy to recycle green and wood waste, so next time you have a garden revamp, order a skip and all waste will be responsibly recycled.
If every UK homeowner adopted the above policies, our nation would benefit greatly, and rather than being part of the problem, why not become part of the solution?
