Whether you are planning to have a major renovation or just a simple spring cleaning at home, it is very important to consider proper waste management beforehand. These days, more and more people are hiring skips because of the convenience that it offers. Skips are basically heavy duty open top bins that you rent and fill with stuff that you want to get rid of. Once you’re done filling it with your trash, the skip hire company will take care of the collection as well as the disposal. In short, all you have to do is to fill your bin with trash. It’s as simple as that. As you can see, hiring a skip is easy and very convenient, however, there are things that you have to know before talking to your skip hire company to avoid hassles and unnecessary inconvenience. Here are some of them.
Other people have told me they put stale bread and cereals in their compost. You can do this or not. But I personally wouldn’t recommend putting any sugary items (surgery cereals, granola bars with chocolate, or desserts) or any food that has honey on it in your bin. You might attract bees or ants. Also, don’t put in sticks. They don’t rot fast enough and it can clog up your compost door at the bottom. (This happened to my sister.) From my own personal experience I find that egg shells don’t seem to break down very fast.
Determine where you’ll place the skip on your property. Take note that once you have your skip filled up, it is impossible for you to lift it or move it to another place. Also, if you are planning to put the skip along public property such as the side of the road, you need to request for a permit from your local council. This takes time though so you might have to prepare this beforehand.

One of the very big problems today is the accumulation of trash in the landfills. This is due to the fact that people don’t know where and when to dispose off their waste. They commonly use the huge, black plastic bags in disposing their waste. Then here comes the garbage trucks to check up and pick up these bags. However, there are times that they don’t able to pick up these bags, and then this garbage keeps getting amassed in the house. This time, people will look for options because trash collection is very tiresome.
Well you give some business to Mexican based ready mix or materials companies in regards to this wall, and use a Mexican based transport company to bring it to the sites. We think that Grupo TMM could be a beneficiary if that should occur, as transporting construction material via railcar or truck is right up their alley. Now that takes us to another stock by the name of Cemex (NYSE: CX) which is a global building solutions company and their claim to fame is the production, distribution, marketing, and sale of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates, and clinker worldwide. Cemex closed at $56 yesterday about 16 points off of its 52-week high of $72.08.
Waste management is everyone’s job. You have to become proactive when it comes to your own waste and start putting more thought into what happens after your garbage leaves your house.
