Here are just some of the types of waste we often find during a storage unit clean out.

Old Furniture

People and businesses often store surplus or old furniture in storage units.

However, down the track they may realise that they don’t actually need this furniture. Therefore, it must be dealt with somehow.

Hiring a professional rubbish removal company to handle your old furniture is essential. We’ll handle it safely and ensure it’s dealt with in the most sustainable manner possible.


E-waste is an extremely common type of commercial rubbish that we see on a daily basis.

This type of junk consists of computers, printers, scanners, mobiles and any other similar electronic device. Much of the e-waste in Sydney is produced by commercial businesses.

However, people often have a few computers or phones sitting at home as well. In turn, many of these items end up in storage units!

It’s essential you hire the professionals to deal with your e-waste. This will ensure that this waste type is dealt with in the most eco-friendly way possible.

At Sydney City Rubbish, we work with certified facilities which recycle e-waste. That means a better result for the environment.


People often store their old clothes in storage units.

Unfortunately, these items are often forgotten about and end up taking space that you’re paying for! Therefore, you should have these clothes removed quickly and efficiently.

Business Filing and Archives

Many businesses use storage units to stow away old files and archives.

That could mean boxes upon boxes of paper filing, needlessly filling your self-storage space! This is a huge waste of money and also presents a fire hazard.

There’s no better time to go digital and get those files and records online. Once you do that, hire a rubbish removal company to remove this waste.

You’ll then be able to store more important items in your storage unit, thereby saving money for you or your business.
