garbage trucks

Throughout the course of our lives, we accumulate a lot of junk and rubbish. After years and years, the piles of old items can become a bit of eyesore, and more importantly, take up a lot of space. Remember when you used to be able to park your cars in the garage? It probably feels like it’s been years (that’s probably because it has). Well, it’s only natural that you would want your home in the heart of Sydney to be clean, open and spacious. So, if you’re looking at ways to declutter your home and be rid of all that useless junk sitting in your garage, attic or spare room, here’s a quick overview on hiring rubbish removal services in Sydney.


What do you want to get rid of?

The first thing you need to do is organise all your rubbish and junk. There might be things you wish to keep because of the emotional, sentimental or practical value they bring. Old school photo albums of your children are a must, whereas your old lawnmower that doesn’t work can probably be tossed out.

To make things easier, sort your rubbish into three distinct categories: “keep”, “toss” and an “undecided.” Once you have organised your three categories, it’s time to begin organising your rubbish removal in Sydney.


How large does your container need to be?

Once you have gauged how much rubbish you need to remove from your property, you can start looking at different container sizes.


You also need to make sure that you have enough space on your property to properly house the container. If you only need one of the smaller containers for your rubbish removal in Sydney, the space requirements shouldn’t be too much of a concern. However, the larger containers can be tough to manage, so make sure there is adequate space on your property for a delivery truck to drop the container off and collect it later.


Organise a delivery and collection time

Make sure that you and the company have a set time when the container will be delivered and dropped off. This allows you adequate time to plan and prepare efficiently for the task ahead. When organising the timings and the container size with the company, make sure that you ask for hinged-door rubbish removal in Sydney if you have heavy items you wish to move. Anything like large furniture, old fridges or washing machines can be very heavy to lift and carry. Make sure your container has a hinged-door, so you can simply use a wheelbarrow to place your items into the container. You don’t want to hurt yourself by bending your back forwards all day.


Ask for help if needed

If you think you will need help with your rubbish removal in Sydney, don’t be afraid to ask. Ask family or friends to see if they are available to help for the afternoon or just a few hours on the weekend. It will make the whole process run a lot smoother, saving you time and money. Make sure you pay your friends back with a night out or a nice dinner.


Back to the piles

So, all the rubbish in the “toss” pile should go into the rubbish removal in Sydney. Check the “undecided” pile one last time to see if there is anything worth tossing or keeping. If you still don’t have enough room for what is leftover, consider hiring a self-storage unit to house the rest of your items. In the long run, rental costs are cheap and it’s easy to quickly head to your local self-storage unit and find the item you might need (should it be needed again).

If you think you could benefit from rubbish removal in Sydney, don’t hesitate and get in touch with your local provider of rubbish removal services.
