Professional rubbish collection companies around the country are tasked with a large potion of waste management in Australia and therefore have a responsibility for eco-friendly rubbish removal. Everyone from households to businesses creates waste that if not disposed of correctly can have an adverse impact on our precious environment. However, we understand that it can take more time and effort than many people have free to do so.
That’s why getting in touch with Sydney Rubbish Services is your best option if you want your rubbish removed in an eco-friendly manner. Our dedicated team have over 10 years in the industry and are always thinking of the Earth first. Here’s how.
Responsible e-waste collection is extremely important for a number of reasons. Electronic waste is one of the most volatile materials commonly found in landfill. Electronics contain harmful chemical and metal that when dumped in landfill can wreak havoc on the environment. Some of the harmful substances found in electronic devices includes lead, mercury, cadium, hexavaliant chromium, arsenic and different fire retardants, which eventually end up in bodies of water, groundwater, soil, and the air.
It is very important that you remove this waste responsibly – meaning not in your weekly council rubbish collection or at the tip. We have access to all e-waste recycling facilities in Sydney and work with them regularly disposing of e-waste from our loyal customers.
Green waste (also known as garden waste, organic waste or yard waste) is an organic compound, meaning that when it is dumped it starts to breakdown. The process is called anaerobic decomposition. Anaerobic decomposition creates methane which is a potent greenhouse gas and can be extremely detrimental to the environment. Luckily, all of this waste is recyclable!
Sydney is a leafy city and most households will have at least a small amount of green waste to deal with. For those with larger houses with gardens this can quickly become overwhelming. In this case getting in a garden waste removal service is an excellent option. No job is too small for us, and we have access to every green waste recycling facility in the city.
Paper & Cardboard
Paper and cardboard are amongst some of the most recycled materials on the planet, which is an excellent thing to hear. Between home and office recycling in Australia, roughly half of paper and cardboard waste products are disposed of sustainably but this number can always be higher! All paper and cardboard products can be recycled, but it is your responsibility to do so – or your responsibility to give an eco-friendly rubbish removal service like Sydney Rubbish Services a call.

Steel & Aluminium Cans
Steel and aluminium cans make up a massive percentage of recycled materials in Sydney, however, massive amounts of these products still make their way into landfill every day. In 2010, just over 30% of steel cans, and 67% of aluminium cans were recycled in Australia. These figures are always climbing higher and it is your responsibility to make sure they continue to do so.
