Unfortunately, moving house or moving your office can result in a lot of rubbish, with single use packing materials and unwanted items often finding their way to the local tip. Using professional removalists will help reduce the waste associated with your move, but there’s plenty more you can do as well.
- Spend Some Time Decluttering Your Home
One of the keys to reducing your waste during the moving process is spending some time decluttering your home in the weeks leading up to your big day. If you’ve been living in the same house for some time, the chances are that you’ve probably accumulated a fair amount of stuff that you don’t need or want to take with you.
Rather than sending this stuff directly to the tip, spend some time sorting it out and put any useful, working items aside. Then, you could:
- Sell them online for a little extra income.
- Sell or give them away via social media.
- Donate them to your local charity shop.
- Give them to friends or family members.
There’s absolutely no reason to and no excuse for throwing perfectly good items in the trash – so don’t do it!
