A winter wonderland may be fine for walking in, but no one likes to clean up debris and haul junk in the midst of winter weather. So, what can you do?
In many situations, you really can't leave junk, trash, and debris laying in your yards all through the winter. And if it's in your garage or your house, you need it out of your way.
Junk Hauling in a Winter Wonderland: Not for the Faint of Heart
Those of you who live in sunny Southern California or the balmy climes of the Southwest may not get much in the way of snow and blizzards, but you do get rain. And, in many places, winter storms can be brutal no matter where you live.
So, whether it's ice and snow, or flooding rains, having to deal with junk hauling and removal in the winter months is no picnic.
Even if there is little or no snow or ice to deal with, just working outdoors in the cold weather can be more than simply uncomfortable. Accidents and injuries are more likely to occur in those conditions, not to mention the very real possibility of hypothermia or frostbite.
According to information posted by the Cleveland Clinic, for example:
The risk factors for hypothermia you probably think of first — wind chill, submersion in cold water and working outside in the cold — are all factors that can certainly rob your body of its heat. But there are many factors other than a cold environment that put you at greater risk for hypothermia. It’s important to also consider these contributing factors you may not expect:
- Age (especially advanced age) — Children and the elderly are more susceptible.
- Medical conditions — Hypothyroidism, low blood sugar and high blood pressure sometimes contribute to hypothermia.
- Medication — Certain medications can increase the risk of hypothermia for older adults. These include certain barbiturates, antidepressants and tranquilizers.
- Dehydration — When you’re dehydrated, you may have lower blood volume. Lower blood volume affects your circulation and your body can lose heat more quickly, which can result in hypothermia.
- Strenuous outdoor activities — Even athletes sometimes become dangerously overtired and also lose heat more quickly if they are damp from sweating.
While the obvious alternative is to simply leave it all until the spring, we understand that this is not always a feasible option. There are many times when the piles of junk and debris are in the way and maybe even creating a safety or health hazard.
So, what do you do if you don't want to load it up and haul it away yourself or - more likely - you really can't because you're not able to or don't have a truck and proper equipment?
