Ok, everybody. It’s spring cleaning season. This is serious. You’re going to finally conquer the clutter, empty the basement, and get the garage organized enough that a car could plausibly fit inside. Are you ready? To make things easy for yourself and make a visible difference in the household’s appearance quickly, see if you have any of the items on 2022’s most tossworthy item list and get them in the trash first.
2022’s Most Tossworthy Items: Put These In the Trash
All of the Cardboard You Can’t Recycle
Pizza boxes, take out containers, and other greasy cardboard can’t go in your recycling bin. Simply bag this cardboard up in a normal trash bag and put it out in the rolling container as part of your weekly trash collection. Many people accumulate pizza boxes in particular because they don’t know what to do with them. This spring cleaning season let us make it clear: pizza boxes go in the trash.
Broken Glass Can Go in the Recycle Bin
Broken glass is another item people hold onto because they don’t know how to get rid of it. Of course safety is important! Because broken glass is sharp and dangerous, the safe way to recycle it is to put the pieces of glass in a cardboard box labelled broken glass for your New Canaan CT trash collection service to deal with. Put that box next to your recycle bin. Do not just toss broken glass in the recycle bin.
Busted Up Furniture & Other Large Junk
The chair you picked up at a yard sale for $3 in 1998 because you were going to refinish it? It’s time to let that go. The same is true for the stuff you were going to repair someday, items that can’t be sold or donated, and other large pieces of junk. The easiest, most efficient way to get rid of these items is to collect them in one area and arrange with your New Canaan CT trash collection service for a special pick up.
