Moving to a new home requires a lot of things to be considered, and on that list is what to do about trash. Whether this means extra trash you gathered while packing or setting up your trash removal services at your new home, it is certainly something to think about. It might be easy to put it on the back burner with all the other things going on, but the sooner your sort it all out the easier the move will be. Below are some tips on how to deal with trash pickup, excess trash from your move, and recycling.
Rent a Dumpster
Are you overwhelmed with excess junk that you decided to do away with before you move? Did sorting through your basement storage yield more items to discard than old treasures? At the end of a move there is often plenty of trash left behind that you’re not sure what to do with beyond bagging it up. It won’t all fit in your garbage bin and you don’t want to leave it behind for the landlord to deal with. This is where renting a dumpster comes in handy. Your local trash company should have this option available and it allows you to get rid of everything you need to for an affordable fee.
Ask About Third Party Billing
When it comes to setting up trash pickup and recycling bins at your new home, you should talk to your landlord about third party billing. Often times rental properties will keep the bill under the owner’s name and add you on as a third party that the bill will be forwarded to. This means that you don’t have to set anything up and you just need to wait for your bill. It’s wise to find out ahead of time if this is how your bill will be handled or not so that you can set up services if need be.
Find Out When Pickup Is
Chances are you will have even more recycling and trash to do away with as you unpack and settle into your new home. This is why it’s important to find out what days your trash pickup and recycling pickup take place. You can call your local waste management company and give them your address to find out your schedule. This will save you from accidentally missing a pickup and having an overflowing garbage bin until the next week or so.
Coordinating with your landlord and your local waste management service while you move will save you a lot of trouble. They have all the information and resources you need, so don’t be afraid to reach out to them for assistance with any of the items discussed above.
