As we have discussed the benefits of a clean and tidy property, let’s have a look at ways to handle the waste and debris from it:
Recycling and Reusing
Before removing waste from land, the first option must be recycling. If there is a proper facility available, the waste must be recycled. Many items in waste such as metals, plastic bottles etc can be recycled at recycling plants easily.
Sometimes waste contains valuable material having good market amounts. Such as any iron rod, wire, any small instrument. Must check for such items, separate them and sell them. Waste disposal cost can be reduced with recycling and separation processes. Hazardous waste must be treated chemically and physically by various methods. These methods include oxidation-reduction, distillation, neutralization, digestion and various thermal treatments.
Always look for the recovery of valuable things dumped in waste. Waste may be household trash or general trash. In addition to waste material such as plastic bags, it also contains renovation items, metals and various damaged appliances. These things are somehow more valuable than waste material. They can be sold at local scrap yards.
Also if a metal is found in waste, it can be recycled. Metal is a valuable item and can eliminate the disposal cost if sold at a local scrapyard. Many non-functional home appliances such as any machine, stone etc can be found at the waste. You can sell them or reuse them or sell them after repairing them.
Removal of waste via any waste removal company can also be a good option. There are many companies worldwide working for junk removal from private properties. Getting skip bins can be a great solution for waste removal. Hiring any company for waste removal is a little bit costly. But it is the most convenient method as they have well-trained staff. This staff is specifically for the purpose of efficient waste removal. Special handling of household hazardous waste, freons, paints, lead-acid batteries is required. So if you are not good at handling, then hiring a company is a good option.
Regular junk removal will restore the value of the property. Clean land looks more attractive than land having a lot of waste. However, this is required when there is huge waste accumulation on our property.
It is the process of removing waste material by burning it. It requires a very high temperature and causes the complete burning of organic waste. It reduces the dumped waste volume by many folds making it easier to dispose of at landfills.
However, it is an expensive method. It requires large amounts of fuel to produce a high temperature. Moreover, it also creates air pollution which is not good for the environment.
It is applicable and cost-effective if waste over a huge area is to be burned. But it can be very much costly on a small scale.
Removing Waste yourself
This can be an excellent option for saving money on waste disposal. But it requires regularity and punctuality. For instance, you must clean your property every week. So a large amount of waste is not accumulated if removed every week.
Moreover, if there is the availability of a trailer, one can fill the waste in his trailer and drop it at any waste collection point. It is less costly than any waste company. But it is not a convenient process for one who is not familiar with the waste removal process. Before filling the waste in the truck, you must inspect the waste. As hazardous waste material requires permission to drop and they have separate points of drop.
