Holiday Extras are NOT Trash

New Year is here with its promises and resolutions of a clean, fresh start. For many, it means first taking care of the added amount of recyclables and garbage that were generated over the holidays. We, here at GPOD Dumpster Rentals, have in mind some straightforward and effective ways of cleaning and recycling the holiday wastes to start your 2012 literally clutter-free.

The National Christmas Tree Association estimates that 30 million pine trees in our country were turned into Christmas trees last season. We better put them to better use even after they have graced our living rooms. Leaving them on the sidewalks to be collected by Fairfield County’s waste management agency unnecessarily burdens our community, and burning them contaminates our air.

Live Christmas trees are rich raw materials that can be composted to nourish the soil. Along with them, you can compost the vegetable and fruit peelings from last Christmas and New Year eves’ dinners. But if you have already started the holidays right with your green thumb last Christmas with a potted Christmas tree, please go ahead accentuate your garden with it. Should you have a plastic Christmas tree, then you surely wouldn’t mind reusing it next year.

Otherwise, you can contact Fairfield County’s Local Municipal Recycling coordinators on how you can recycle your Christmas trees and other holiday extras. You can also get in touch with a dumpster rental service in Fairfield County to manage the waste that your average trash bin cannot hold.

Fairfield County’s local recycling center will welcome the plastics, cans and glasses you used during the holidays. Gift wrappers and ribbons, on the other hand, can adorn the presents you’ll give this year’s Christmas and other occasions. If all American families will do such with even just 2 feet of holiday ribbons, we can have a bow long enough to tie around the entire planet! And because the holidays are when 40% of battery sales occur, they are now most toxicant in the landfills. Please properly dispose your exhausted batteries through a mail-based service or by returning them to a local battery retailer.

Americans throw an additional 1 million tons of trash every holiday week. We, at Fairfield County, CT can help clean-up that filthy number if we can manage and recycle our post-holiday wastes. If those and your other trash are too many and mixed for you to handle, then maybe renting a dumpster is a reasonable solution. A dumpster rental service that specializes in waste segregation and recycling will not only help you kick-start a Clean and Green new year, but will also speed up your cleaning and renovation projects all-year round.
