As we’re all staying at home as much as possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus, the team at W&S, the South’s leading recycling company, has come up with a list of useful things you can do to keep yourself and your loved ones entertained.
There’s no denying one benefit of spending so much time at home is the reduction in CO2 emissions from our cars, so why not help the environment a little more by finally getting around to establishing a recycling system in your home. This can include designating separate bins for waste, food scraps, kerbside recycling and specialist recycling – don’t forget to put separate recycling bins upstairs too!
Hands up if your garden shed or garage is fit to bursting with old or broken furniture and other brick-a-brack you haven’t had the time to throw away Well, since your weekends just opened up why not take this opportunity to have a thorough clear out and rid your house of all the clutter you’ve accumulated over the years. We're still able to provide our online skip hire, contact free, so you can fill it up with all your unwanted items and when you’re done, simply give us a call and we’ll come and collect it.
Keep your brain occupied and challenged while we’re all social distancing by enrolling in that online learning course you’ve always wanted to try. Whether that’s a course to help give you the skills and confidence you need to secure that longed-for promotion or to discover a completely new talent, once you’ve finished your education you’ll have a fantastic sense of achievement.
Take advantage of the extra time inside to find out more about sustainable living. A great way to do this is to take some of the items you know might not be the best for the environment, or you haven’t been able to find in your supermarket, and researching eco-friendly alternatives. Great places to start include plastic-free toothbrushes and bees wax food wraps that are a ‘greener’ alternative to clingfilm.
