Every time I see this full medicinal sharps bin in corner of the room, I say to myself ‘I must find the number to call to get someone to collect this’. If it wasn’t for my challenge, I probably wouldn’t have stopped in my tracks today to look up the number for the council’s waste team.
I said that if they didn’t answer straight away or I get put on hold, I would give up; however, they did answer and within a few minutes the collection date was booked and I found myself making a note in the diary for when I need to put it outside. And they are going to drop off an empty one at the same time.
It felt good to get such an easy job done that I’ve put off for so long. There are so many of these five to ten minutes tasks around the house, but I don’t feel stressed about it anymore as there are plenty of days left in the year to do them.
The good thing is, every new improvement around the house that I’ve made so far this year is staying that way. Things are feeling tidier, which is making us all happier.
