As trash pickup professionals in Pitt and Lenoir County we know how hard trash day can be. No one likes taking out the trash. It can be stinky tiresome, and stressful. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Here are some key hacks to make trash day easy.

1. Mount Your Trash Bins

That’s right, you can keep trash off the floor. With a couple pieces of  wood and a drill, you can hang up recycling bins so that it’s easier to sort your recyclables. This keeps the bins off the ground and serves as a great reminder to recycle and sort accordingly. For instructions on how to do this, check out The Handyman’s tutorial.

2. Put Your Trashbags On a Roll

Do you ever wish it was easier to separate your trashbags? As trash pickup specialists, we love having a trashbag in every trashcan. Make it easy to do so. Repurpose a paper towel roll to hang up your trash bags.  It will make putting in a new trash bag faster and that much easier.

3. That’s Right, Say Hello Dolly

If your trashcan isn’t wheeled or you have large trash you need to get out, invest in making some flat dollies to roll things out. We love some of our handy dandy dollies to transport some bigger loads. You can use thicker frames or left over wood. It will make transporting things to the trash easier on you and your back. Here’s a tutorial to get you started on Lifehacker.
A note: if you make the dolly like a frame and have an empty center, that makes it easy to hang it on your wall with some hooks. Doing it that way means you’ll never trip on it.
