Household Rubbish Removal: 8 Items You Can Declutter Today Part 1

household rubbish removal services

From crumpled papers to duplicate items, you’re probably having trouble decluttering. Even if the clutter appears unusable to others, you keep it for yourself because you think, “I might use this one day.” In other words, with many “what ifs,” deciding where to start is the most challenging part of decluttering.

That is why you must begin with the right mindset. You must understand what to prioritise, where to start, and when to hit the reset button. And if all of this seems a little overwhelming, let Deceased Estate Sydney, the experts in household rubbish removal in Sydney, give you the right advice on what items should be discarded immediately.

PART 1: 8 Items You Can Declutter Today

With so many rooms in your house, deciding where to begin can be difficult. However, as household rubbish removal experts do, you select a location in your home that is commonly used. If your family frequently utilises your kitchen, try decluttering it first.

And whatever room you choose, here is Part 1 of the decluttering checklist. The living room and kitchen will be our first stop.

ROOM #1: Living Room Items You Need to Remove

With so much foot traffic, your living room is the first thing every visitor notices. So, let us attempt to declutter it!

1. Old Magazines and Books

You probably compile thousands of magazines or books to read if you are an old soul. Perhaps, you’ve attended many conventions. And like any book enthusiast, printed materials can accumulate in your home over time.

When this happens, it takes up space in your living room and is not visually appealing. Thus, it’s time to dispose of these items, mainly the mildewed pages. Also, as a rule of thumb, if you only read it once a year, get rid of it!

2. Used Bills or Files

Receipts, documents, catalogues, and other items that provide proof of your daily expenses and activities are essential. However, toss them if they have passed their expiration dates and are sitting unused in your living room! Who needs your receipt from a $40 shopping spree a year ago? No one!

However, keep in mind that you should organise any documents of your life milestone in one place, such as:
  • Birth, marriage, and death certificate;
  • Diploma;
  • Real Estate Documents;
  • Active Contracts; and
  • Medical Records
  • 3. Electronics

    Excess electronics should be disposed of properly, and there’s no reason to keep your device after it’s been upgraded.

    In addition, keep in mind that electronics are dangerous. Hence, it would be best if you entrusted E-waste recycling and disposal to a professional household rubbish removal service in Sydney. Otherwise, irresponsible e-waste removal can result in chemical leakage, causing environmental poisoning and pollution.

    4. Figurines

    Have you ever been to a party? Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and get-togethers—you name it, at least two of your four parties have given you keepsakes. Every year, all of these items pile up in your living room. As a result, various figurines are disorganised and strewn about on your shelves.

    If this is the case, try to get rid of these items. Instead of allowing these items to take up storage space, keep your other essential things on your shelves.

    We eat every day. Therefore, it is critical to keep your kitchen as clean and inviting as possible. That’s why Deceased Estate Sydney compiled a list of kitchen items you don’t need.

    5. Condiment Packets

    Throw away any condiment packets you have saved from restaurants. It’s simply a waste of plastic. Buy a bottle, such as a ketchup bottle, to clean the space in your kitchen and save the environment.

    Aside from this, condiment packets are inconvenient when compared to bottled condiments.

    6. Duplicate Silverware

    Maybe you forgot you had that item, or perhaps you prefer a different colour. But whatever it is, give away the extra Silverware. This takes up space in your kitchen. Allow your kitchen to breathe.

    7. Uni-tasker

    Do you have a kitchen gadget that you only use once in a while? It could be your bagel cutter or a fruit slicer. If you don’t think you’ve used it twice a month, donate or recycle it.

    8. Expired Items

    We often get tired of cooking when busy and usually order food online or visit a fast food restaurant. As a result, your pantry items are going to waste. And sometimes, we forget to check to see if they are still fresh.

    So, today, go through your pantry and see if any of your pantry staples have expired. Throw it away if it has passed its expiry date.
