Christmas is over and the holiday season is drawing to a close. That means once the holiday fever subsides and once the guests leave your place, you’ll be left to clean gift papers, glitter, Christmas tree debris and a lot of other mess. If you’re lucky enough to have a huge Christmas family reunion, you might not be so lucky in the cleaning department. The amount of waste produced during the holiday season makes a big percentage of waste produced throughout the year in the United States.
If you’re struggling with managing your holiday waste, check out these tips that might help you out:
Not everyone gets to celebrate Christmas like you do. There are a lot of people around you longing for Christmas presents and gifts from their loved ones. Think about donating things that you know you won’t need in this holiday season to organizations and centers that deserve them and can make use of them.
Recycle the Waste
Not sure what to do with all the paper lying on the floor in the lounge? Instead of dumping it in the bin or your dumpster, drop them off to a recycling center around you that accepts colored papers. Do remember that not all recycling centers will accept gift wrapping paper; in fact, few do. Similarly, tissue paper cannot be recycled either. Glass and aluminum can also be recycled so if you have any holiday waste made up of those materials, your best option is to recycle them.
Reuse if Possible
Unless your Christmas decorations like Christmas balls, bows and wreaths are in a terrible condition, you can always keep them safe and reuse them next year. This will help you save money and reduce the amount of waste that you need to manage.
Rent a Dumpster
If the waste produced in your home during the holiday season is too much to handle for you then simply rent a dumpster to get rid of all the waste in one go.
