These days, there’s a lot of talk about going green—and for good reason. Conserving resources and reducing our carbon footprint is more crucial than ever!
If we want to save our planet, we should start with our trash bins. Did you know that proper waste disposal is one of the most important parts of staying sustainable? Sure, we all know that we should be sorting it. The problem is, not all waste management companies actually transport it to the proper sites.
Since proper waste disposal is one of the most effective ways to save our planet, why not change the way we go about it instead of wreaking havoc? Three simple steps can create the change Mother Nature needs to succeed.
Choose a Waste Management Company That Cares
Do Your Research Before You Decide
When it comes to choosing a company to take care of your waste, it’s important to make sure that they care where it goes. Don’t just go with the first company you see! Do your research and ask about their practices before making a decision.

Rent the Right Garbage Bins
Choose Bins Based on Your Behavior
Depending on what you tend to throw away and in what amount, you should get a certain type of container. When you choose the right bins, you will:
- Minimize your spending
- Maximize your use of space
- Send your waste to the right place
If you are not sure, simply consult your waste management company. Small changes can go a long way in keeping your home and home planet clean!
Make Sure it is Sent to a Sorting Facility
Putting a permanent recycling bin on your property is one of the best ways to go green. If you really want to make an impact, though, you should ensure all your garbage is sent to a specialized sorting facility! This will significantly reduce the amount that is sent to landfills and left to emit harmful compounds into our atmosphere. At Western Elite, we always do this so you can breathe easily.
Use Your Bins Correctly
Sort What You Throw Out
Getting the right garbage bins isn’t enough— To truly go green, you should make sure to use them the right way, too. Throwing trash out mindlessly might be easy for you, but someone has to sort it! Instead of creating more work for your waste management company (if you opted for a company that cares, that is), why not keep your costs low and support these unsung heroes by doing your part in proper disposal?
Close Your Lid Tightly Every Time
Do you leave your lid cracked open? While this may seem like a minor mistake, it can actually cause a lot of damage! Open bins attract hungry animals who can then scatter trash around your community. Not only is this an eyesore but it can also:
- Attract pests
- Put your family and native wildlife in danger
- Prevent it from ever getting to the proper site
Take the time to close your lid, and you’ll help keep your community clean and natural neighbors safe.
