Benefits of Valet Trash Service
- One less thing on your to-do list. Many people are so busy with school, work, and other responsibilities that simple household tasks, like taking out the trash, get put on the back-burner until they become a necessity. Valet trash service takes care of that issue by coming straight to your front doorstep with an easy pick-up process.
- Recycling made easy. Most people do not actively make a choice to not help the environment. More often, it is simply inconvenient for many people to have to separate and then bring multiple different trash bags to their dumpster or compactor. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only 34% of all discarded things are recycled. Many valet trash services will provide a recycling bin with the same easy pick-up concept. We all know how great the benefits of recycling are for our environment, so why not make it easier on yourself to help out?
- Sweet simplicity. Simply place your trash bag(s) in the provided container outside your doorstep and bring the container back inside when the pick-up period is over. No fussing with stairs or heavy bags.
- No more "it's your turn" arguments. No more roommate/significant other/family feuds will be started over who took the trash out last. This is just the best for everyone.
