Upcycling Vs Recycling


A house clearance is never an easy task, however with a little planning and knowledge you can make the entire process eco-friendly and stress-free. Turning old unwanted things and revamping them into something new is something that not only benefits the environment and the amount of waste going into the landfill but also allows your children to get involved. Turning old things into new things without breaking them into raw materials is called upcycling. Recycling however is breaking a product down into raw materials to later make completely new ones.


Both schemes benefit the planet tremendously, upcycling usually requires much less effort to repurpose an old unused item. Recycling can be much more advantageous at a large scale, however. When it comes to determining whether something can be upcycled or recycled, you should judge the quality of the item. If it has damage beyond repair you should consider recycling, if not why not upcycle. 




When it comes to clearing a house the task itself can be very daunting, not knowing where to even start. Don’t try to do everything at once, instead go room by room. By dividing each room into sections you can quickly identify what you want to recycle or upcycle or perhaps even sell. Once you finish categorizing what’s going where you can start removing and packing easily. By using multiple bin bags you can collect recycling items and in another all the upcycling items. Repeating this process around your house or other rooms will allow you to pack in minimal time.
