Rubbish Removal Sydney: 3 Ways Not to Dispose of Waste

The way we dispose of our rubbish is more important than ever, as we try to minimise our impact on the environment.

Unfortunately, many people get rid of their waste irresponsibly, which then does a lot of damage to the eco-system, as well as people.

Here are 3 of the worst ways to dispose of waste. 

Illegal Dumping

A common problem faced throughout Sydney is illegal dumping.

When people simply dump their waste in parks, on the side of the road or on empty lots, it has a terrible impact on the environment.

Moreover, it results in an enormous eyesore.

Despite hefty fines, many people still dump their rubbish like this. In fact, in a survey of 1,000 people, 1 in 3 admitted to illegally dumping waste at some point.

Therefore, everyone needs to do their part to ensure waste is ending up in the right place, and not illegally dumped.

Burning Waste 

Another common way people try to get rid of their rubbish is through burning.

This is fine for most green waste (as long as it’s dry) and untreated wood. However, often people try to burn treated wood, plastics and other dangerous items.

Burning materials like plastic and treated wood contributes to air pollution, and can present a health and safety risk to anyone nearby.

For instance, if you breathe in toxic smoke from a rubbish fire, it can greatly affect your health right away. It can also have implications in the future.

Moreover, smoke from these fires can present a health risk for neighbours, as well as a nuisance. It can also harm local wildlife.

Therefore, you should avoid burning waste at all costs. Instead, contract a waste removal company to remove your rubbish.

A professional Sydney rubbish removal company like Sydney City Rubbish will remove your waste affordably.

Using an Unqualified Waste Removal Contractor

Another way to improperly dispose of waste is by using an unqualified waste removal contractor.

Unfortunately, there are organisations out there that claim to be professionals, yet do not know what they are doing.

They may take your waste away, but do not dispose of it properly. Often, these unregistered companies simply illegally dump waste.

Avoid this by hiring a professional waste removal company, like Sydney City Rubbish.
