Where Does Timber Waste Come From?

commercial rubbish removal

One of the most common types of junk or rubbish that we come across on a daily basis is wood, or timber waste.

Wood waste comes from all sorts of sources. The most important thing, however, is that it’s removed safely and disposed of sustainably.

At Sydney City Rubbish, our waste management professionals take wood waste from all manner of sources, with the utmost care.

From there, we’ll ensure that it’s either repurposed or reused. That might include use on new building projects or turning wood waste into garden products like mulch.

Our sustainable approach to dealing with rubbish means that when you hire us to remove your wood waste, you can rest easy knowing you’re having a positive impact on the environment.

Here are some of the places we remove wood and timber waste from.

Demolition and Strip-Out Waste

Whether it’s a residential strip-out, retail or commercial demolition, there will inevitably be some kind of wood waste.

It may be cabinets and joinery, wooden struts and beams, floor finishes like hardwood, partitions, furniture and much more.

We’ll remove this waste efficiently, ensuring that your space is left in pristine condition.

At Sydney City Rubbish, we can also complete the actual strip-out or demolition project. Our in-house trades have a wealth of experience in this field.

Put simply, we’re the best in the business.

Garden Waste

Garden waste, or green waste, is commonplace on large properties, both residential and commercial. It’s made up of clippings, branches, wood outdoor furniture and more.

The great thing about garden waste is that it can be mulched and used over again. This means that really, it’s a zero-waste product.

We’ll remove this waste for you and take it to a certified facility. There, it will either be mulched or turned into compost.


Pallets are common in warehouses and other industrial settings.

Unfortunately, many pallets and other, similar pieces of wood waste end up in landfill, because businesses don’t think of the environmental consequences.

Pallets are very easy to reuse, with commercial businesses turning pallets into all sorts of furniture and outdoor equipment.

That’s a great result for both your business and the environment.

Construction Waste

Construction waste is a huge issue in Sydney, with millions of tonnes produced every year.

A large amount of this waste is made up of wood. This comes from offcuts, broken bits and pieces and demolished buildings.

Dealing with construction waste sustainably is critical going forward. We have a duty to protect the environment and responsible removal of construction waste is part of this.

We’ll remove your building waste, including any timber or wood, and ensure that it’s properly recycled or repurposed.
