One of the biggest misconceptions one can have is that their decisions (and the accompanying consequences) exist in a vacuum. Being a part of a family, a community, or a company means that we are always representing those things that we are a part of, and all the good or bad things that come back to us as a result of our choices will undoubtedly touch those closest to us. What’s left to us, when deciding what to do, is to choose to keep those other elements in mind.
By choosing apathy or concern for how your neighborhood — or on a macro level, your state — looks, can have a butterfly effect on the flora and fauna in your area, to say nothing about the mental and emotional health of you and your neighbors.
Tackling the Issue Together
It is often said that “now is the best time in history to have a baby,” or “there has never been a better time to get an education than right now.” Meaning, that thanks to today’s resources and the advancement of society, things that had once been dangerous or prohibitive are now open to everyone. Thanks to modern technology and a bigger focus on environmentalism amongst regular people than ever before, there truly has never been a better, easier time to clean up one’s community than today.
Hosting a home or neighborhood pick-up project isn’t something that you have to do alone. In fact, Western Elite has worked to provide the best dumpster rental infrastructure in all of Henderson and greater Nevada. Contacting them for their help comes with certain guarantees that are meant to encourage everyone with their easiness and dependability. All you need to do is muster the troops.
Break Out the Bags
Organizing a clean-up effort in your community doesn’t need to be difficult. In fact, with the dumpster rental taken care of, including drop-off, pick-up, and advanced scheduling, getting the word out is the first real hurdle.
- Take to the Streets, the Phone, and the Internet: When they said there was no better time than right now, they meant it. Social media not only brings widespread attention to any particular issue but even has tools to organize the particulars built-in to the app. With Western Elite able to accomplish same-day delivery whenever you call them, the dumpster rental will be available at the same time as your people.
- Organizations Will Love You: Youth groups, city councils, church congregations, and all your neighbors will most likely jump at the chance to focus on a part of the town (like your housing community) that could use a little extra TLC. Getting enough manpower to come and spend an hour or so picking up litter and cleaning gutters shouldn’t be a problem.
- Gather Your Supplies: With the dumpster rental in place, the scheduling details made, and the word spread, all that’s left is to make sure you’ve got enough supplies for everyone if they’re not bringing their own. Bags, gloves, rakes, hoses, and wheelbarrows will all make the job a lot easier. Plus, people will be more likely to come if all they need to bring is themselves.
The great thing about keeping a community clean is that it doesn’t have to be a big production; in fact, you’re encouraged to keep it small. You don’t have to rent a construction dumpster in order to clean up a corporate building site or city-run facility — just taking care of where you live and spend your time is enough to bring heaven to Henderson or wherever else you are in Nevada.
