Seasonal Waste Management Tips & Advice

Seasonal Waste Management Tips & Advice

Waste management can change depending on the season. For example, people often declutter and refresh their living spaces during spring, while it’s common to clean up debris created by storms in the winter months. On the other hand, yard work tends to increase during the autumn months when leaves fall, while home improvement projects are common in the summer. This blog post contains some useful tips and advice to help you handle seasonal waste responsibly, sustainably and effectively.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is the perfect time to declutter and refresh your living spaces. During a spring clean, you’ll likely come across items you no longer want or need. Consider donating or recycling usable items such as clothing, books and furniture to op shops. Any leftover items can be collected and taken to a processing facility by arranging skip hire in Melbourne. This service can be especially useful for large items as well as yard waste such as fallen branches or dead plants.

Summer Renovations

Summer is often the season of choice for home improvement projects. Whether you’re redesigning your kitchen, adding a new room or building an outdoor deck, you’re likely to generate a significant amount of waste that needs to be managed. Consider hiring a skip bin or waste removal service to handle this debris, being mindful of recycling materials like wood, metal and concrete.

Autumn Yard Work

As the leaves change colour and fall, yard work usually becomes a necessity. Instead of bagging leaves and sending them to landfill, consider mulching or composting them to enrich your garden’s soil. For larger branches and yard waste, hiring skip bins for household rubbish and green waste can help make disposal quicker and easier.

Winter Storm Cleanup

Winter storms can leave a mess of downed trees and broken branches. While you can use downed branches and twigs for firewood or chip them into mulch for future landscaping projects, larger branches can pose a challenge. Arranging a green waste rubbish removal service is an easy way to solve this problem and keep your property tidy.

General Tips for All Seasons

Some general waste management tips for all seasons include:

  • Minimise waste by buying products with less packaging and reusing items when possible.
  • Follow your local waste disposal guidelines and use designated recycling/composting bins.
  • Safely dispose of hazardous materials like paint, batteries and electronics.
  • Composting kitchen scraps and yard waste can reduce the amount of organic waste that ends up in landfills.

      thumb Stephanie K
    • We've had an 8m skip collected today, and the service has been excellent. From the 1st call to enquire about getting a skip for household clean out for a move, until today, we've been completely satisfied with GT Skips. We were given an option to extend the time we had the skip, but didn't need to, but it was very considerate of them to provide this option. Highly recommend this company.

      thumb Jo Birznieks
    • Prompt and professional. Bin hire was about $50 more than competitors, but decided to go with GT as they provided me with confidence that the items will be sorted and recycled. Called before they were dropping off the skip bin and before they collected. Would hire again
