Millions of people move each year and this result in creating tonnes of household waste, so it makes sense to keep this wastage of household items to minimum when one moves.
There are certain steps that you should follow in order to reduce the wastage. Avoid buying new boxes, instead save boxes beforehand. Try arranging them from your friends and family. If you area unable to find any of them, then go for those boxes which can be easily recycled. Once the use of boxes are over then you must recycle the boxes. You can also ask the moving company to give you boxes on rent.
Instead of packaging material you must use newspapers to pack your household items. Consider using the biodegradable or recyclable packaging materials. If you are using non recyclable material then you must properly dispose it after use.
In order to lighten your load sell all the items like clothes, appliances, books, house hold items etc. which are of no longer use to you. It’s a wise thing to donate something for charity purpose.
