Happy New Year from the Waste Experts team.

Happy New Year from the Waste Experts team.
Waste Experts would first of all like take this opportunity to wish all of our customers, suppliers and colleagues a Happy New Year 2024.
Now that the holiday season has come to an end, the thought of accumulating more items in your business can make you feel overwhelmed, it might be time for a waste clearance. We mean a complete office cleanout, including all redundant electrical equipment, outdated furniture, confidential waste or any other items of waste you may have accumulated over the years. Use these tips from Waste Experts, along with our clearance services, to plan your post-holiday declutter.
1. Make a plan and stick to it
Before starting your declutter, think about what you want to accomplish. Do you need to make space for new staff in your office, are you due a refresh of your IT equipment or do you require an archive clearance? Make a plan for each area you want to tackle by listing out the large items you need to address and your goals for each space. Keep in mind how much time you can dedicate to the task and aim to complete it before the end of January. It may take some time and patience but having a clear plan will help you stay organised and focused as you declutter.
2. Think about the environment
If you decide to use our waste services to declutter your business, it's important to consider the environmental impact of your actions. Waste Experts offers nationwide van clearance and skip hire services that achieve the highest rates of recycling and recovery. Using local Material Recycling Facilities (MRF’s) to process all the waste we collect; we help reduce your carbon footprint whilst improving your businesses environmental performance. When it comes to waste clearance, it can be easy to feel like you are throwing away usable items or contributing to landfill, but Waste Experts take all steps to minimise your impact on the environment and divert 100% of the waste we collect from landfill.
3. Apply the Waste Hierarchy
Try to consider if any of the items you are decluttering could be reused, repurposed, or donated to a local charity. If any items are beyond use or repair, make sure you try to recycle as much as possible, separating recyclable materials from non-recyclable waste.
4. Ask for help
Decluttering can be physically demanding, so it's helpful to have some extra hands to help you with the heavy lifting. With Waste Experts you can entrust our professional team to do the heavy lifting for you through a wait and load service. This allows you to avoid the physical labour entirely and get on with your day-to-day business. This can be especially convenient if you are limited on space or cannot afford the space to have a skip on site for a long period of time.
5. Make the most of the skip while you have it
Before you fill up the skip you've hired to dispose of your waste, take one last walk through your space to see if there's anything else you need to dispose of. Consider items both inside and outside of your business, this will help you maximise the payload in the skip and make the waste disposal more cost effective.
6. Make changes you can live with
After you've decluttered your business, take steps to keep it organised. Engage with one of the Waste Experts team who will gladly develop a waste management plan fit for your business’ future growth. As a general rule, if you haven't used or even looked at something in a year, it's safe to get rid of it. Not only will decluttering your workspace improve the physical space, but it can also improve your staff’s mental clarity and productivity. Make decluttering a part of your New Year's resolution this year and enjoy the benefits throughout the year.
