It can be stinky and tiresome. Though it doesn’t have to be quite as hard. Here are some effective tips to make trash day that much easier.

1. Sort Your Recycling Bins

As a rule of thumb, our movers in New Bern, NC put a priority on being organized An easy way to do that is to hang up and separate your recycling bins.

That keeps the bins off the ground and serves as a great reminder to recycle and sort accordingly. For more detailed instructions how to do this, check out The Handyman’s tutorial.

Make it easier on yourself. Repurpose a paper towel roll to hang up your trash bags. That way you can dispense them more easily, rather than digging around in a box. It will make putting in a new trash bag faster and that much easier.
