Garbage in the country is always an obstacle, especially in the autumn, when you want to clean the cottage and leave it clean until spring. But a variety of trash is not so useless, because it can be used for your own needs. So, today we are talking about the benefits of garbage in the country, no matter how trite it may sound.
Many country ideas suggest the use of old things in the country, and we talked about this earlier. But today we will touch upon new topics that our readers have not heard about before, and tell you how to effectively use country garbage.
DachaDecor.ru recommends taking the issue seriously, as in this way you can not only increase practicality, but also avoid many costs.
Tree branches in compost and firewood
Cutting off the orchard, we often forget about branches that can lie on one heap for many years. But when they are needed for barbecue or furnace, the branches are already unsuitable for this, since they “fell victim” to insects and moisture. Therefore, we recommend that you think in advance about branches that can be used with greater benefit.
First of all, thick branches and even trunks of uprooted trees are excellent firewood for cooking meat and other dishes on fire. Especially if it is firewood from fruit trees. Also, on time logs prepared and folded into the constructed firewood will help melt the stove in the house, which is especially important in the autumn and winter.
Smaller branches can also be used beneficially, and not just burned by watching a high bonfire. They will be an excellent compost and in a few years will give one of the best fertilizers that you can only dream about in the country.
Old boards on boxes
Not so long ago we talked about boxes, the most diverse. It is very practical to use them at the cottage - to store tools, various things, vegetables and fruits in boxes. So it is precisely for the production of such boxes that old boards will do. It's okay if they are chipped and with nails, boards can always be processed with high quality.
A hair dryer will help to tear off excess paint from the surface, pliers will help to cope with nails, and new impregnations will provide protection for many years. Now that the boards are prepared for the production of products, just knock them out of boxes and bins, and even shelving for a summer residence, shelves in cellars and cellars.
Useful building debris
We once mentioned that building rubbish should not be thrown away, and now we want to point out this fact again, because broken brick, pieces of concrete and cinder block are a great alternative to new bulk materials.
Why order a whole machine of gravel or gravel when you just can not take out construction waste. Here you can immediately see the double benefit - you do not spend money on the purchase of material, since you do not spend it on the removal of alternative material, that is, garbage!
Where can construction waste go in the country? Yes, anywhere. This is filling the site in areas with stagnant water, and laying the drainage layer in the ditches, if the water treatment in the country surges, even filling up pits and ravines, repairing access roads.
Metal in the country can not be thrown away!
Throwing away the reinforcement or mesh, you can pass by squandering throughout the country cooperative, since everything that concerns metal, for many people, is immediately converted into dense packs of cash. But it is, because all the metal products that are in the country are very expensive, and sometimes it’s much easier to use even old and rusty metal for some kind of construction or somewhere else than to buy a new one.
Let's look at a few examples to understand how much we need absolutely all country metal:
- The fittings and corners will go to the installation of new frames for weaving plants and hedges in the spring. From the same materials you can make arches for grapes, a metal fence in the backyard, or just support for plants;
- The metal beams and channel that remained after the construction or dismantling of any building will become an excellent basis for a summer shower in the spring, for a barn or during the construction of a cellar, because it is with the help of these materials that the ceiling and ceilings are built;
- Smaller metal elements in the country can always fit in to fill the foundation for landscape buildings, for dressing it, instead of expensive reinforcement. Mesh, wire, pieces of rod - everything will come in handy.
Well, if you can’t apply the metal in the country, quickly turn it over to the scrap metal collection point so that thieves will not do it instead of you.
Leaves and paper are not rubbish!
We do not offer to collect scraps of paper and old newspapers around the site in order to turn them into waste paper. We do not recommend storing leaves. But putting it all in compost, along with the same branches, waste, and even cardboard is a great solution. You should not throw away what can become absolutely free fertilizer for the soil on which you will grow seedlings, berries, vegetables and herbs.
Glass containers in the country
A very interesting article on glass bottles has been on our site for quite some time. It seems that there are crafts from plastic bottles. It is because of the fact that the use of glass containers in the country is available, and quite wide, we do not recommend taking bottles to the trash.
From glass bottles, you can make fences for flower beds and lawns, decorative lamps, and even make walls.
Old containers, basins and buckets
From the old bath in the cottage you can make a small lake, from buckets - flower beds and protection for seedlings, from basins and bowls - the basis for decorative fountains.
As you can see, the use of this trash can play into your hands, since with old buckets, tanks and bowls, not only decorative crafts, but also more useful things are possible. For example, in whole tanks during the warm season you can defend water, prepare fertilizers, store bulk materials and products, etc.
Windows and window sills - useful rubbish!
Replacing windows in the country is a good idea, because in winter new windows will help to save heat in the house that we have already insulated. But it often happens that old wooden windows immediately go to the trash, the glass breaks and the frames are burned. This is not worth doing, because for a long time we have a wonderful solution for them - a greenhouse from the windows, well, or just greenhouses for seedlings.
It is also interesting that window sills should not be thrown away. They can always turn into garden paths. Naturally, this is not the best solution, since the look of such products is far from attractive. But there is an option to place such tracks in the backyard, in the puddle or in a similar place.
You can use old window sills in the form of borders, as a basis for installing something, the same summer shower, well, or if they are in an unsuitable condition at all, then break the window sills into small parts and use them as construction waste.
If only useless rubbish remains in the country, you can simply burn it, or take it to a landfill.
