Post Christmas Clear OutsPosted on - 07.12.20
Having a clear out in time for Christmas always sounds like a great idea, but with the combination of working, shopping and wrapping, who realistically has the time?
That's what the week after Christmas is all about! You've had your new haul of Christmas gifts, the kids have received more toys than Santa's workshop can hold and your loft space is jam-packed with old broken, unloved toys. It's time for a sort out.
Using your free time
The week between Christmas and the new year has always been an odd time. Not knowing where to go, what to do. Are you still going through all the food you brought for Christmas? Have you eaten your weight in Christmas chocolates and shortbreads yet? Why not make the most of this time and get a skip on the go!
Many people haven't gone back to work yet, and we find we're spending more time in front of the TV. So why not make the most of being at home, and see how much you can fit in a skip!
Over the year we collect an abundance of things that might not make it into the new year, from old toys, to old Christmas decorations, and everything in between. It's even a great way to get rid of all the excess packaging that we find in our normal bin after Christmas day.
Can I skip everything?
There is a selection of items that unfortunately you cannot throw in a skip. So you will need to consider these before you throw them in. Items that cannot go in a skip include:
- Asbestos (Please contact us if you require disposal of asbestos)
- Medical waste
- Fluorescent tubes
- Electrical appliances
- Fridges and freezers
- Light bulbs
- Gas cylinders
Aside from the above, we would encourage you to send any old, unbroken toys to charity where you can. As we are currently in uncertain times, there are many families that are struggling to offer children good toys, so please consider donating where you can.
If you require more information on items that can and can't go in your skip, please contact us today and we can talk through your items and offer you the best advice.
