How to Effectively Do Proper Waste Disposal during COVID-19?

The current pandemic outbreak—known as COVID-19—has been affecting a lot of things today such as junk removal. Simultaneously, households that are encouraged to stay at home actually make more waste while other local junk movers are cutting back on pickups because of a shortage of staff. This is definitely an overwhelming period for all of us. However, it’s also important that all of us must initiate in doing our part to help reduce the chances of spreading the coronavirus. To help you with that, we will give you a few tips on how businesses and residents can properly and safely dispose of their junk, despite the junk removal methods they currently do.  

  • Make sure to practice washing your hands more often especially if you dealing with junk. We surely get this advice all the time, but doing measures to stop spreading the coronavirus should be taken seriously today. Keep in mind that even virus is not prevalent today, trash or any forms of waste is still a great source of germs and bacteria, which can definitely make anyone of us sick. So, if ever you get in contact with trash outside and inside your home, wash your hands right away.  
  • If you’re sick, make sure to let them know in advance. While you’ve decided to rent/lease a company to eliminate waste from your house, it does not mean that they must be unaware of any dangerous conditions. So, you should make sure to be open to them and let the entire team be notified that you were exposed to the virus or you’re just feeling sick. You can always have your project rescheduled to a safer date later on.  
  • Start practicing signing papers electronically as you make disbursements for the junk removal or renting out a dumpster. Check if they offer electronic payment options like sending documents through email or providing your credit card through the phone.  
  • Maintain a safe distance from your and the junk removal crew during a junk removal or a home-based cleanout. As we all try to keep on making social distance a habit, it’s as vital to adhere to the suggestions and mandatories that the medical staff and the government are providing. As you interact with anyone else who tries to assist you, ensure to keep approximately 6 ft. apart.  
  • Keep open communication especially for those who visit your house. Make sure to have your house sanitized and clean because you may be prone to transporting bacteria into your house, particularly if a lot of people are getting help. Sanitize all things that come into your house and guarantee that you are very cautious once people move in and out of your home for clean-out.  
  • Ultimately, if your hands are unwashed, it’s important not to rub your face. Once you get infected hands, you will also be infected as the infection will be transported from your hands to your mouth, nose, or eyes. As much as possible, always bring a bottle of alcohol or hand sanitizer with you.
