If you’re the owner of a business, there are probably things sitting in some nooks and crannies of your business space that you haven’t thrown away for whatever reason. Not only are they creating clutter, but they’re more than likely making spaces look untidy, with all the dust and dirt they’re likely collecting. It may be time to call your neighbourhood dumpster rental service to give you a hand. Here are some items that your company probably wouldn’t miss if they were tossed.
- Old Electronics
That box of 10-year-old paper-fed calculators sitting in the storage room are not ever likely to be used again. Your municipality likely has a drop-off centre for electronic equipment. Give your city hall a call to see where they can be taken to be recycled.
- Receipts, Bills and Other Documents
By law, your company has to keep old receipts for a certain amount of time, but beyond that, they’re just a dust-collecting nuisance. If you’re at all concerned about recycling or shredding old documents, you can always make a scanned copy of them and keep them digitally.
- Old Business Cards
Your company or business has probably evolved over the years, and yet there still sit scads of faded, old business cards. The best idea is to recycle all old cards immediately once new ones are printed. It’s not like the old ones will be worth anything one day.
- Office Equipment and Furniture
Even though the padding of the arms of that computer chair wore of years ago, there the chair still sits in a corner—probably home to a pile of papers you’ve not thrown away. Do yourself a favour and give a dumpster rental company a call to see what services they have to help you dispose of these old pieces of office furniture.
Your company image is definitely tied to how well its operating space appears to the public, who will judge both its organization and its cleanliness. You want to make a good impression on customers and clients. In no way does clutter do that. A messy space may make people question the efficiency of your products and even your work ethic. It’s best to dispose of those things you’re no longer using or that have outlived their usefulness. It makes for a healthier environment for you, your employees, and your clients.
