Summertime gathering that needs a 20-yard roll-off dumpster in Montgomery, AL

4 Summertime Waste Management Tips

The first summertime in the post-COVID-19 world means getting out and seeing our friends and neighbors, getting the kids together for playdates, and large gatherings of family and friends for BBQs and cookouts. But all of these events can lead to a lot of waste accumulation, so it is a good idea to find ways to manage this waste before you need a roll-off dumpster rental to get rid of all the trash. Here are a few suggestions

1 – Use Reusable Plastic Plates and Metal Utensils for Cookouts

While it’s true that paper and Styrofoam plates and plastic cups and utensils are incredibly convenient, they are only used once and end up in landfills. So take the time to either purchase or use the heavy-duty plastic plates and cups you have on hand for these purposes. They don’t break like glassware and china and can be washed afterward and used again for your next big get-together.

2 – Plan Meals Using Ingredients from Your Garden

If you planted a garden this spring, use the produce you grow to replace the produce you buy at the store. For produce, you don’t eat fresh, freeze it or can it so it can be used later in the year. When you buy produce at grocery stores, it is almost always wrapped in paper or plastic, ending in landfills.

3 – Compost Yard Waste

Why not put together a compost pile instead of throwing out all of those grass clippings, dead leaves, and leftover table scraps? You can buy a garden compost container at any home and garden center or construct one of your own with inexpensive materials. This will transform your yard waste and organic table scraps into rich soil that you can use for your garden or flowerbeds and keep out hundreds of pounds of these things out of landfills.

4 – Create Kid-Friendly Fun with Cardboard

Cardboard and paper is estimated to generate 41% of the solid waste in landfills. So why not use some of your cardboard boxes to build a fort, boat, or even an Iron-Man suit? There are a limitless number of fun constructs you can make from cardboard boxes, and then you can recycle them once you have finished.
