Green is your lucky charm

Green is your lucky charm!

We all love spring for the green and warm months that are ahead. Our green residential friendly bins with wide double doors for easy loading are perfect for any size project you may be thinking of tackling this spring. If you are getting ready to move, starting a yard or home project, or just doing some much-needed spring cleaning and decluttering our bins are perfect to help with your project.  
If you are planning on cleaning and decluttering start with clearing out the areas, you often overlook. Pantries, closets, junk drawers and even your bathroom vanity can build up with clutter you don’t need or use. Which is our first tip- if you don’t use it toss it. Throw away old makeup or expired food and spices. Toss out any accessories that don’t get love or are dated. Go through the piles of magazines, junk mail, bills, and newspapers start by making a pile of stuff to shred and stuff to toss out. Most UPS stores will have a bin you can put items in for mass shredding if you feel okay letting someone else shred your documents.
Second tip is give a good look at your furniture, appliance, and dishes if they are battered or just sitting unused then it’s a time to think about throwing them out. As you move from room to room give everything a good dusting. A telescoping microfiber duster or long vacuum hose can help with those hard to reach areas.
Tip three is to have a good stock of dusting and cleaning tools. Walls and baseboards can collect a lot of dust and hair. Use a slanted vacuum hose to clean along where the floor and wall meets. You will be surprised at how much it will freshen up a room. When working on cleaning up the kitchen grab a few dryer towels. The dryer towels can help remove the greasy buildup that accumulates around the kitchen.
Our fourth tip is an effortless way to clean drapes, blinds, lampshades and furniture. Most stores will have a cheap blind attachment for your vacuum. Stock up on lint rollers and use them to clean lamp shades and furniture. Put drapes in the washer if the fabric can handle it or put them in the dryer on air fluff for a few minutes to breath new life into them.
Use these tips to help make your cleaning easy and less stressful. If you need a bin to help haul away your junk we have you covered.

It's that of year! Get decluttered

It’s That Time of Year! Spring Cleaning
With Spring on its way many of us are thinking about projects we need to start and cleaning to be done. I always find it amazing how fast clutter can build up, especially after holidays like Christmas and birthdays. If decluttering is on your to do list it might be helpful to have a plan ahead of time, so you don’t get slowed down when deciding what to toss and what to keep. Here is a list of questions to help make the process easier.

Will you use it? – If you’ve set something aside that is broken with plans of fixing it and a year or more has passed ask yourself if you even noticed it was being used, was it missed.                                                                                                                                      
 What did you get it for? When you come across something that you can’t remember why you got it then it just may be time to toss it.
What condition is it in? Another man’s trash is another man’s treasure is very true and a wonderful way to reduce waste. If you are thinking about reselling or donating items, it is important to look over each item to make sure it’s not only in decent shape but it’s safe to be used. Electronics that have loose wires, leaky batteries or missing parts may be better to throw away then sold or donated.  
How many do you have? Stocking up on items like water and emergency supplies should be something every household does. However, if you are stocking up on items that you don’t use often or that won’t come in handy in an emergency it may be time to get rid of the excess.  
Are you paying to have your clutter stored? Do you pay storage unit fees? If’s worth keeping or it’s time to get rid of it. Maybe clearing out the unit will help you save money each month which is always a bonus!  

Once you are ready to think about hauling away the clean out project Bin There Dump That Layton is there to help. We have bins of varying sizes to help with jobs big or small. Give us a call and we would be happy to help you find the bin that’s right for your job.
