JANUARY 19, 2018 – COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – You’ve undoubtedly heard of the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle), but this hardly encapsulates effective home waste management. Part of living in a home is producing waste. It’s unavoidable and often a hassle, especially if your home design doesn’t create a streamlined process for getting it out of your home. Rocky Mtn. Disposal of Colorado Springs offers some simple strategies to manage your home waste.

General Home Waste Management Strategies

More than just good habits, think about installing and maintaining appliances such as garbage disposals and residential trash compactors that will reduce your trash load. Compost your outdoor trash and, even some indoor garbage, such as non-animal kitchen scraps and paper can help lowering the amount of landfill garbage as well as creating nutrient-rich compost for your garden.

Effective placement of trash cans and recycle bins throughout your home is also key to good home waste management. After all, on top of protecting the environment, you probably want to get rid of your garbage with a minimal amount of time and energy. When designing or remodeling, keep these things in mind as you strive to improve the functionality of your home.

Hazardous Material Disposal

Most homeowners know that you can’t just haul any kind of waste out to the curb and expect it to be picked up. Several kinds of common household items are deemed to be hazardous materials that require disposal at a hazardous waste disposal site. A quick call to Rocky Mtn. Disposal can help determine the best plan of action for you.

The EPA has classified over 500 specific hazardous waste materials, some of them are more commonly found in homes that others. Some of the more common hazardous materials include motor oil and other automotive fluids, pesticides, paint and paint products, household cleaners, batteries, aerosols, and some other cosmetic products. This is far from a comprehensive list and few homeowners take the time to memorize all 500 hazardous waste materials.

In general, hazardous waste is deemed so because it is highly flammable/combustible, corrosive, toxic, or explosive. If you’re not sure if a household product is considered hazardous waste, take a look at the label. If the label uses the words Danger or Poison, as federal law requires, they’re almost surely hazardous waste. If the label uses the words Warning or Caution, these products may require care during use, but are generally not classified as hazardous. Resist the temptation to bury hazardous waste products in amongst your regular household garbage. Even if you don’t get caught, you’re doing a serious disservice to the environment and your local community.

Other Dangerous Home Waste Materials

Not all dangerous materials are disposed of through the trash. Asbestos and mold, for example, need to be handled with care and many states require a licensed professional to dispose of these materials. If you suspect you may become exposed to either material during your home improvement projects, contact Rocky Mtn. Disposal about detection and remediation of the problem.
