When it comes to any DIY job, you’re going to end up with a lot of waste come the end of it. Given that you’re perusing this blog, I’m going to hazard a guess that you’ve got some experience of this. How many times have you been caught up in a job and failed to notice the mounting pile of rubbish around you? Once it all begins to pile up, it can be a nightmare to get rid of. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. And luckily for you, here at Let’s Fix It, we’ve amassed some pretty clever tips for disposing of waste of the years.
Let’s get into some of the ways you can deal with it, shall we?
Make Compost From Waste
If you or your family have any interest in gardening, this is a great way to make use of waste. Instead of having to round it all up and take it to the tip, put it to good use in your own back garden! All that leftover wood that you’ve got piled up now? Burn it down and use the ashes as compost. That’s a principle that can apply throughout your home, too. Collect all your old food bits and use it in the same way, like banana skins, egg shells and vegetable peel. Check out our dedicated post for ideas.
Recycle Everything You Can
Sometimes the word ‘recycle’ fills us with dread. Not because we don’t want to help our planet in any way we can, but because we know it’s going to mean another job. Are you, like us, pretty lazy? Well, try not to worry because you’ve got a couple of options. You can either find it within yourself to round everything up and take it to the recycling center or tip. Why would you do that? Because you can get paid to recycle. Alternatively, have somebody come and collect it for you, and you can feel proud of your efforts without even lifting a finger.

Leave It Alone
Of course, there is a third option that might appeal to you the most. Just forget about it. All those old bits of wood don’t need to go anywhere. As a matter of fact, they might come in handy for your next job. And wouldn’t you be kicking yourself if you found that you had to go out and buy more wood after just throwing a load away? Find a safe place to store it away, like your garage, and then it’s always within an arm’s reach if you need it. I swear this isn’t just an excuse to get out of a job. This is actually one of the best DIY money-saving tips, so make of that what you will.
