Planning your household waste disposal.
Rather than do all the heavy lifting, rely on professionals to help you through. This list gives a quick overview of the what and why of your household waste.
Typical household waste.
Most of what you throw out in the home needs some sorting. You want to avoid contamination of recyclables that cost thousands of man-hours and limit big returns in energy.
Items you no longer use in the home are mostly good to go. These include old kitchen supplies and crockery, packaging materials and papers, and old toys and clothing.
Renovating and landscaping waste.
Though on the heavy side, most debris from landscaping and scraps from renovating count as household waste. Soft items such as wood and carpet scraps are easy to toss. Vegetation is also good to go.
Garage and storage items.
A surprising amount of waste lurks in garages and storage areas. Old decorations, stacks of seasonal clothing, and assorted decorations are all good to go. Clothing and textile waste is household but also prime for donation and reuse.
Large scale paper products like old books are best donated but count has household waste if you do toss them.
Items to avoid.
Look out for anything broken or leaking. Glass, especially mirrors, need to be wrapped and identified.
Chemical wastes can count as hazardous or otherwise contaminate landfills and should be separated. Food waste and organic waste (like diapers) also need to be separate from household waste.
Large appliances such as dryers, refrigerators, and ovens contain materials that need to be processed so they don’t classify as household.
Large chunks of rock or concrete fall into the heavy waste category. These are too much for regular household bins and should be dealt with separately.
A surprising amount of household waste is e-waste. Anything electronic with a battery needs to be separated to be dealt with specially. The batteries contain materials that are corrosive and flammable.
E-waste takes extra time and effort for centres to pull apart the bits that can be reused and the bits that get landfilled. You don’t need to take them apart when deciding what to do with old electrical items.
