Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Office

Posted on May 10, 2018 in Tips

Whether it’s a tradition that you look forward to, or one that you do your best to get out of, the end of winter signals that it’s time for your annual spring cleaning projects to get underway.

For millennia, people have considered spring to be a time of renewal and rebirth. It’s a time when everything blooms and comes back to life. The old year has passed and the new one has begun. Part of saying goodbye to the old year means doing away with everything that is no longer needed or wanted.

In more modern times, the renewal signified by spring was expressed through tidying up the home, holding garage sales, painting, replacing old and worn-out furniture, throwing away the accumulated junk of the previous year, and more.

Clean More than Your House

Our homes aren’t the only places in need of a good cleanup, however. We should be extending our cleaning activities to the place where we spend a good portion of each day, week, month, and year: the workplace. Yes, your home may need to come first, but never forget that spring cleaning includes your office.

If you happen to work in a larger office or big business, you will probably find yourself with a lot of junk to clear out at the start of each year. Office furniture may have reached the point of no repair, meaning that not only will it need to be replaced, but the old, damaged items will need to be broken down and hauled away.

Filing cabinets, old electronics, computers and related equipment, will all need to be disposed of properly. Just the simple act of removing them and hauling them away may prove difficult for many people and companies, but you will also need to know when, where and how to properly dispose of your junk.

Some companies are also responsible for handling their own landscaping, in which case spring cleaning becomes an even bigger job, and one that generates piles of organic waste and landscape debris. Once again, this will all need to be removed and disposed of in the correct manner, which involves more than having two guys in a truck cart it all away.

On the plus side, after completing all this work, you will find that you now have reduced the accumulated clutter, giving you a much-improved work area. The lack of clutter can lead to a higher morale among your staff. Studies have also shown a correlation between clutter and productivity, with productivity and efficiency declining as clutter arises.

So, once you have cleared out everything that needs to go, and you are left with piles of junk, organic matter, and landscaping debris.

You find the right people to take it all off your hands.

A Brilliant Solution: Outsourcing

As a business owner, you are going to have more on your mind than hauling trash. And most—if not all—of those things will be more important to the well-being of your company. Frankly, taking care of trash is not where your time and effort will be best spent. So why would you do it?

You might tell yourself that it is only one time a year. That’s true enough, but if you are going to be handling your own company’s waste, then there are a few things to consider:

  • Additional time spent to get the job done
  • The potential for injury, owing to lifting and moving heavy objects
  • The cost of renting a truck to haul everything off, or the time spent finding one to borrow
  • Determining what can be thrown away and what can be recycled
  • Learning the proper methods of disposal
  • Learning where things can be disposed of safely

This is all probably bad enough, but there are other things still to consider, such as disposal fees, CRT monitor disposal fees, and possibly having to deal with toxic waste.

It’s time to consider your options carefully.

What Options Are There?

Yes, you definitely do have options. Aside from the “do-it-yourself” option—which you probably shouldn’t even be thinking about, really—you basically have two:

Your first option is to find someone locally who has a truck and is willing to undertake hauling everything for you. As mentioned above, however, there is much more to disposing of your spring cleaning debris than simply taking it away and dumping it somewhere. You would need to know that the person you hire is knowledgeable in the right ways to dispose of everything. If not, you could be facing huge liability issues.

Probably not worth considering this option either.

Your best bet? You can—and should—consider hiring the professionals by calling in a specialty trash hauling firm.

When you hire a professional team, you are ensuring that the job will be done quickly, efficiently, and completely. You won’t need to worry about municipal dumping fees. You won’t need to concern yourself with possible fines. You won’t find yourself waiting in line at the local landfill.

Hiring a professional firm means you can take an eco-friendly approach, with recycling and re-purposing of appropriate items taken care of for you, so that you can have the peace of mind knowing that you are doing the right thing for both your company and the environment.

Our team of professionals are well-trained and highly-competent, and they will ensure that every recyclable item is taken care of properly.
