Tips for effective recycling

Recycling at home is getting easier and easier. Several county councils around the UK now offering recycling to be collected on a similar rota to general waste. Recycling doesn’t need to take up lots of time either if you choose to setup a simple system or put up a poster so you quickly know what can and can’t be recycled. We’ve come up with a list of quick tips, with the help of reusethisbag.com, to help you recycle effectively in your home.

The Tips

  1. Flatten cardboard boxes to make more room in recycling bins
  2. Most metallic items around the house can be recycled such as tins, drinks cans and tin foil
  3. Make space in a spare cupboard for recycling to save you going out to the bins constantly for recycling
  4. Always recycle glass products as these can be endlessly recycled into new things
  5. Help the local recycling centers by rinsing food waste off of any containers before recycling them.
  6. Any paper items can also be recycled. This includes newspapers, envelopes, cardboard boxes and even toilet and paper towel tubes. 
  7. Most batteries should be recycled. Recycling-guide.com says that ordinary batteries should be recycled as they do not contain harmful chemicals. Rechargeable batteries should be disposed of with household waste as they contain harmful chemicals. Check on your local council website to see if batteries can be recycled in your area or if there is a battery deposit bank near you
  8. If your recycling is starting to pile up the divert your route to work or to the shops to go via your local recycling center and drop it off
  9. Reusing is a great way to start the recycling process. Things such as water bottles, shopping bags and food containers are all great things to reuse.
  10. Learn the other ways to recycle other than just curbside. Things such as recycling water or food.
  11. Buy recycled! Buying recycled products helps to lower your carbon footprint and most products which are made from recycled materials are likely to be recyclable again. 
  12. Check your local council website to see if your area provides curbside recycling and if so then what days they collect

 

Good housekeeping makes recycling very simple. Following these tips will allow you to recycle with little to no extra effort.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update

 

Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards
