Tips for Up-cycling

This month’s blog is all about upcycling!
All it takes to upcycle something old & unused to give it a new lease of life is a little bit of elbow grease & imagination. There is so much we can do once we put our minds to it, from upcycling old furniture, creating new storage spaces, kids play kitchens or workstations, the list is endless. There is great satisfaction to be found for many people by not sticking to old habits of shop bought or buying online and creating something yourself. Upcycling is all about turning waste into something meaningful.

Summer Has Arrived

We have had a small glimpse of that summer sunshine in recent weeks. The perfect motivator to get cleaning our homes inside and out to freshen them up for the summer months.

From sorting the attic to clearing out old clutter and mess in the garage/shed or even that one room that ends up being a dumping ground for all unused clothing, bed clothes, suitcases and other household items. We begin painting & decorating our homes. We tend to start striping every bed in the house to make use of the better weather and longer drying hours.

At Barna Recycling, we want to make your life easier. So, whether you have already started or plan on starting a clear out of your home then why not hire a skip. We find it is the easiest solution for our customers!
