Rubbish Removal Sydney: Three More Common Types of Waste

At Sydney City Rubbish, we see all kinds of waste on a daily basis.

We have spoken about three common types of waste previously; domestic waste, green waste and office waste.

Now, we discuss three more sorts of rubbish that we see regularly in our line of work.

 Construction Site Waste

 The construction industry in Australia is huge.

Unfortunately, because of the size of the industry and the materials that are used, a phenomenal amount of waste is produced every year.

In fact, every single year, the construction and demolition industry in Australia produces around 20 million tonnes of refuse.

Many materials make up this waste. That includes wood, brick, concrete, metal, plastic, plaster and some green waste.

Often, materials like tiles, piping and wood end up in the waste unnecessarily, when they can be reused or recycled.

 Electronic Waste

Electronic waste, or ‘e-waste’ is often considered a subsection of office waste, and can come from a variety of sources.

Computers, phones, tablets and virtually every other electronic gadget make up the majority. Sadly, the way we deal with this waste becoming a problem.

We’re not recycling it properly. This is important because there are so many reusable parts in every electronic item.

Ensure you are disposing of your e-waste properly, by utilising a professional Sydney rubbish removal service.

Recyclable Waste 

Household and commercial materials usually make up most recyclable waste. This includes containers for food and drinks, paper and cardboard, glass and metal and other items.

We need to recycle as much of this material as possible, for the environment and the future of our planet.

According to the University of Wollongong, in Australia we only recycle 36% of PET plastic drink bottles. That means a staggering 373 million end up as waste, every year.

That is a huge blemish against our recycling efforts, and we must get better. Contract a professional Sydney rubbish removal company to help with your waste removal efforts.
