Preparing Your Trash for the Winter

Preparing Your Trash for the Winter

With the past few months Torontonians have been experiencing being made up of extremely low temperatures thanks to the wind chill, the only thing we want to do is place our face, hands, toes… you name it in front of the heater and not move. Of course, we realize there is work to be done and not to forget, junk to rid of! Redbins Disposal is frequently asked the same questions: “How do you deliver your bins and take away our garbage?” “What is the process of ordering?” etc. But, in the winter it’s more: “How can I throw away my garbage without freezing when I go outside?” These are all valid questions in my opinion. Here are some tips on how to prepare your trash for the winter:

  • Create piles. As much as you can. You may think to yourself, “But the trash will smell eventually”… But don’t you worry; there are ways to deodorize. Trust me, there are some very smart people who come up with ways to deodorize their own garbage in these dire situations. A simple Google search will do the trick.
  • Renovate smart: When renovating, we all know there is garbage EVERYWHERE. It is the simple task of moving it from one place to the disposal bin. Remember you can ask for specific placement of your bin at time of order or on delivery. Renovations can be made easy by having the bin sanctioned close to the area the work is being done.
  • Junk Removal: Don’t forget, Redbins Disposal offers the wonderful Junk Removal service where you don’t need to lift a finger, because we understand people are busy and there is work to be done and garbage to throw away. Just simply call in for a free quote.
  • BUNDLE UP: Great tip if I do say so myself… Remember to bundle up if you are taking your trash out to the curb or throwing it in one of our bins. It is the best tool to beat the chill. You can do it, you can do it! Remember, there is a warm home waiting for you once you tackle the winter chill.

Re-gift, Throw away, or DONATE? How to: Donate your “Junk”

A simple how to on how you can donate your junk and how you can feel good doing it.

How to Donate your Junk

With the holiday season coming to an end and the 2015 New Year fast approaching, it is a time to reflect on all of the good that we have in our lives and get cracking on those New Year’s resolutions. So… that sofa you’re throwing away because you just scored an ultra deal at IKEA on Boxing Day? Don’t throw it away as garbage just to have it disposed of at a dump, instead, donate it! Yes, donate it. So many of us are unclear on the items that we can donate but you would not believe how many things we neglect that serve practical use for others. Donations are a great way to give items that you no longer require but others do. It’s a great feeling and did I mention it’s free… that beautiful word. Some organizations even save you the hassle of dropping it off yourself and will arrange a pickup right from your home or area of work free of charge. Oh, and get this, The Salvation Army provides you with a receipt that can be used for tax purposes. It ‘s a win-win for both parties.

Here are some organizations that you can donate to today:

  • The Salvation Army 1 (800) 725-2769
  • Goodwill (416)362-4711
  • Women In Need 250-480-4006 ext. 204
  • Canadian Diabetes Association 1-800-505-5525
  • Furniture Bank 416-934-1229
  • Habitat for Humanity 416-755-7353
