How To Protect Your Home From Unwanted Junk

If there’s one problem that every household in Brisbane faces, it is the accumulation of unwanted junk. Without proper waste management, junk will soon pile up and removing it can become a monstrous task.

As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, a company that offers junk skip bins in Brisbane for hire, I know all there is to know about junk – including the measures you can take to reduce the amount of unwanted junk at home.

So, continue reading this post to discover how you can protect your home from unwanted junk. And, for an easy, no-fuss way to eliminate unwanted junk from your home for good, be sure to hire junk skip bins in Brisbane – like those that we are so well known for!

Remove unwanted junk as it accumulates

While producing less waste is the best way to control junk, this is not always possible. The next best thing that you can do is to remove junk as it accumulates in your home. By keeping junk to small amounts, you’ll find it easy to deal with junk removal.

There are several ways you can go about removing small amounts of junk from your home. If any of the junk is usable, consider selling it or donating it. If you have recyclable junk, consider dropping it off in council green bins.

Reduce the amount of packaging you use

While Aussies are pretty good at recycling, we are also amongst the highest waste generators in the world. Much of this is because of the large amounts of packaging that we use. According to the EPA Household Waste and Recycling Research Report, only 55% of Aussies try to minimise the amount of packaging on products that they purchase.

Reducing the amount of packaging we use can dramatically limit the amount of unwanted junk at home. To reduce packaging, start carrying a reusable shopping bag with you and avoid take-outs. Limit your incoming mail and plan for your purchases. These may sound simple, but they will all help reduce the amount of junk that you produce.

Stick to the ‘One-In One-Out’ rule

Always be mindful of the traffic of items that come into your home. If you find that your home keeps accumulating junk more often than not, it is because more items enter your home than move out.

Make sure to stick to the ‘one-in-one-out’ rule – for every item that enters your home, one item leaves your home. If you are determined to keep this balance, then you will certainly limit the accumulation of junk at home.

Removing existing junk from your home

And, if you already have a large amount of junk to get rid of, then the best thing to do is to hire our junk skip bins in Brisbane.
