Christmas has passed and now it's that limbo time between presents and New Year's. And there's a ton of trash removal required, and that includes the tree.
So, do you make a few trips to the dump yourself in the dead of winter? Or can you get help?
There Are No Christmas Elves to Help with Post-Holiday Trash Removal
It's quite likely that if your residential trash bin is already full that you have bags of "extra" trash waiting to go into it. And you haven't even finished opening everything yet!
After Christmas day, joy abounds throughout the home - and so does trash.
Bags, wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, boxes, various packages made from seemingly bulletproof plastics, and piles of candy wrappers and food trash. The municipal waste management people are already stretched thin and working overtime to keep all the piles of trash off the curbs and out of the streets.
And the holidays aren't even done.
Do-it-yourself trash removal is not a very appealing prospect, even on the best weather days. If you live in Florida or Texas, perhaps it's just another warm, sunny day. But for most folks living in the U.S., the holiday season is cold, wet, often snowy, and never a good time for a trip to a dump.
All of which begs the question: What do you do when you desperately need after-Christmas trash removal?
Post-Holiday Trash Isn't Like Trash the Rest of the Year
If you've lived through a few decades of Christmas's and holiday seasons, you've already know how much junk, trash, and debris can pile up in and around the trash bins.
In addition to the food and party trash, the after-gift-opening trash, and the throw-out-the-old-stuff trash, you've got a Christmas tree (or two), some incredibly large cardboard boxes filled with busted up Styrofoam and plastic wrapping, and any number of other odds and ends that only seem to show up this time of year.
And it all has to be removed and disposed of. Somehow.
For many people, another not-so-fun holiday tradition is the Stashing of the Bags. You might be familiar with this: excess trash is bagged up and set aside - either out in the side yard somewhere or in the garage - and then put into the curbside trash bins every week until they're all gone.
Sure, you might be able to schedule a "bulky trash" pickup from your waste management folks, but that takes effort and, sometimes, extra fees.
So, we end up with bags and boxes sitting around until well after New Year's Day has passed. And, if we're lucky, they're all finally disposed of before Valentine's Day. Except for maybe the tree. We all know those unfortunate souls with dead Christmas trees still lying in their yard somewhere months after the holidays ended.
The good news is that you don't have to be one of those people. And you can avoid carrying out the Stashing of the Bags tradition this year!
