Sorting It Out: An Insight Into The Rubbish Removal Business

Removing a Massive Amount of Rubbish from a Property: 3 Top Tips

If you are planning to clear an area of land which has been used to dump rubbish, you may be wondering about the type of equipment you will need. Below is a guide to things you should seriously consider investing in before you begin work.

Protective gear

Working around large quantities of rubbish can be dangerous. Not only could you catch a disease, but you may also be confronted by a rat or other nasty creature which has made its home among the piles of trash. Rats urine can carry a virus which causes leptospirosis which can make you very unwell if it enters your eyes or mouth. The best way to protect yourself is to make sure you wear a sturdy pair of boots, gloves and a face mask. These things will help to keep you safe. You should always remember to wash your hands when you have finished for the day. Even if you think your protective suit is clean, you should not wear it again as it may contain microscopic particles of rat urine which could still cause an infection many months later.  

An earthmover

If rubbish has been allowed to pile up, the last thing you will want to do is to go crawling through the bags of rotten garbage. The easiest way to deal with a large quantity of rubbish such as this is to hire an earthmover. If you do not know how to operate this piece of machinery, you should also ask the hire company if they will supply you with a qualified driver. The earthmover will be able to push large qualities of rubbish around at speed which can make completing an unpleasant job super easy. If you have problems unloading the contents of the earthmover into the skip, you should consider upgrading your bin.

A large skip bin

Let's be honest; a standard skip bin just isn't going to cut it. In order to deal with a large amount of rubbish, you will need to hire an industrial-sized skip bin. Ideally, you should choose one with an open top and side so you can move the earthmover into position and then dump the rubbish right into the bin. If this proves too difficult, you should be prepared to move the rubbish by hand from the truck and into the recycling area.
