While consuming less is one way to reduce the growing trash problem facing us all, it might not be a practical solution as the population continues to grow year to year.

To do this, we all need to get more serious about recycling and rubbish clearance.

These big bulky items can be utilized for their components, they may still have life in them. 

Stop buying bottled water. Purchase a good-quality container that you can use to fill up with tap water from the sink. If you must buy bottled water, get it by the gallon instead and fill up your reusable bottle as needed. Every bottle kept out of the landfill helps, and the number of plastic bottles your family will keep from piling up at the landfill can be in the thousands after only one year. 

Over the years, your family has accumulated tons of books that you are not reading any longer. If you really love them, purchase them in e-book format and have a yard sale or donate them to a library. If you want them gone today, Clearabee rubbish removal company is able too come pick up your unused library so they can dispose of them properly.

Purchase one quality travel tote and use it each time you make a trip to the grocery store for bread, milk, or dinner.

Those bags will still be in the landfill 100 years from now before they even start breaking down, so eliminating a few dozen a month will go a long way is preserving the resources of this planet for future generations. 

The local rubbish removal company can send over a man and a van, able to take huge piles of trash that may be piling up in your garage. Clearabee rubbish removal offers same-day service and will help you to eliminate all that trash piling up in your garage, so you can finally park your car in there where it belongs.

Clearabee rubbish removal can come by today and have that pile of recyclables gone in a flash. Not only are these items staying out of the landfill, they could be recycled and wind up being used to print menus, business cards, or new books. 

Instead of using paper towels to clean your bathroom, the kitchen, and all the household windows, purchase cloth rags and use them instead. They are more durable and once they can’t be cleaned any longer, can be piled in a trash can until the rubbish clearance company comes by to haul them off. This will cut down on waste in the landfill and your need to be buying paper towels each week.

Look through all your closets for any clothing, shoes, or accessories that you have not worn in the last year. It might be time to say good-bye to these items cluttering up the house. Pile everything in the garage, then call that familiar purple Clearabee rubbish removal van to come take everything off your hands instantly. While in the garage, look for any paint cans, cleaning chemicals, or broken toys just taking up space and add it to the pile to be picked up. That clutter-free garage will inspire you to start looking for other areas in the house that need to be cleared out too.

Purchase a water dispensing machine from your local home center and have bottled water delivered to your home. The cost of a few deliveries each month could equal what you are spending on bottle water already, but you will be making a huge impact on less plastic making its way to the landfills.

As you can see, doing your part to lessen your carbon footprint and to reduce the trash you send to the curb is easy once you get committed. When the rubbish clearing company arrives to haul off the trash, you can sit back and relax knowing you are doing your part so future generations can enjoy all the natural beauty of this planet.
