Going Green Begins with Your Move


The first thing an Irvine moving company will do upon reaching your new home is unload the van. Out it comes — furniture, appliances, and the other big stuff. Unloading is something we Irvine moving companies all are very used to. You, on the other hand, may not be accustomed to this intensive, energy-draining process. After all, you don’t do it every day. Still, you’ll be doing some during the course of relocating. Sure, it’ll be smaller and lighter than the pros handle. Nevertheless, challenges will arise.

One of these challenges won’t be apparent at first – especially since you’ll be preoccupied with the unpacking, carrying, and setting up sundry items. The challenge is something your typical Irvine movers won’t face – what to do with all those empty disposable containers. 

Your first inclination may well be to heap the load into the nearest trash receptacle. If those containers have seen better days, prompt disposal probably is your only option. However, if they’re not tattered, torn, and thrashed, you might want to consider recycling.

Recycling doesn’t necessarily mean trekking to the nearest recycling center. You can get more mileage out of the containers (and keep them from polluting the planet on a garbage heap) simply by holding on to them yourself, giving them to friends, family, and neighbors, or if especially sturdy, even selling them. Rumor has it they fetch substantial sums on eBay, but don’t hold us to that. At any rate, what stays out of the dump helps the planet. You might want to consider that next time you move.
