Little Tales 245 : Cleansing up My Childhood Room, Recycling Previous Books & Magazines

3 min read

We have been spending plenty of time at my dad’s to scrub up our outdated stuffs (I left the home after I was 18 and the room kinda caught in time). There are such a lot of stuffs to do.

The Early Story : Principally what occurred was the water tank beneath the ceiling in our outdated room was leaking badly, so it wanted a change + the outdated roof was in dangerous form. Our room was flooded by it so we needed to do huge clear up and renovation. I feel we already spent round a month on and off on the home since August. 

The Renovation : Repaired the outdated roof, cleaned up the ceiling, modified new water tank, hacked damaged tiles within the kitchen and stuffed it up with new concrete, stuffed up cement in the bathroom’s drain, repaired damaged door, rented trash tank and all these stuffs. We known as ‘tukang rumah’ for all these stuffs that we will not do – we spent round RM 4,700 for all these renovation.

Whereas we (largely Af and I), we organized the stuffs, threw issues that may’t be used, recycled issues that may be recycle, cleaned up the room and plenty of different small stuffs. My brother and sister got here twice to assist with the heavy stuffs particularly the dismantling and lifting. 

The recycling half : The primary time we ship all our plastic stuffs to the recycling heart, we solely bought RM 1 (it was in 3 big plastics). We gave away 1 bag of tins & aluminium to the DBKL man as a result of he needed it – he additionally requested to take the metallic springs in 2 of the outdated mattresses that we put within the trash tank in entrance of the home. 

Listed here are all of the books, magazines, outdated paperwork (paper/board associated) that we bought, together with 2 outdated cumbersome displays, 3 outdated keyboards, 2 outdated radios, and a fax machine. We bought RM 81 for all these. It is on the nearest recycling heart to our home :

Some recycling facilities will not take badly broken books by termite, some simply take them, so you could ask forward. That is solely books and magazines from 2 rooms, we nonetheless have 2 rooms to undergo :

Be aware : A lot of the magazines have been from my sister as a result of she’s the one which spent probably the most on magazines, and already I introduced all my books after I left the home (so I haven’t got this drawback).

Shifting ahead :

  • we now have round 15 big baggage of outdated garments, baggage and materials however we do not know the place/easy methods to ship. Perhaps to the Recycling Middle in Precinct 9 Putrajaya as a result of they take outdated garments (I am unsure about this but). 
  • we have to clear up the kitchen after the renovation
  • we have to discover a approach to clear up the backyard
  • extra magazines and termite-destroyed books within the library room :F

Anyway, it’s a lengthy course of and I’ll possibly replace once more when I’ve the time.
