Welcome! My name is Peter and I have one very important question for you. Do you care about the future of this planet and the fact that environmental harm could make the Earth uninhabitable? If the answer is yes, you will no doubt want to do everything you can to go green and protect the environment. But where do you start? I didn't know anything about this subject but I knew I needed to do something so I got in touch with a local environmental solutions company and asked for advice, they were really great and they gave me some top tips.


Why You Should Always Specify What Items You Are Getting Removed When Hiring A Rubbish Removal Service

Australians are constantly moving and changing around their homes and offices, which leads to quite an excess of items that no longer have a real purpose. If you have accumulated enough waste items that you need to start making some room, then a rubbish removal service could be the only way to handle it logistically. However, when booking a rubbish removal service, it is important that you check what their capabilities are. Not every rubbish removal service will be able to take every item you have. Here are three particular types of rubbish removal which require a bit of forethought when hiring them.

Garden Waste

If you have revamped your garden in a big way and taken out several large plants and trees or removed a lot of pavers and landscaping supplies, you need a special type of rubbish removal. Organic waste is not always able to be disposed of in the same way as traditional garbage, but most rubbish removal services will have the capability to take away this type of rubbish. It is just always a good idea to let the company know what type of rubbish you want them to collect so that there is no confusion when they are at your door.

White Goods

Many types of white goods like fridges, microwaves, washing machines and so on can be recycled if disposed of correctly. They contain a lot of valuable metals and useful material that can find its way into other, new products, which helps the environment out quite a lot. When you hire a rubbish removal company, check to see if they recycle metal white goods and look for one that does. You will be surprised at just how many of them offer this option, and many of them work with corporate clients to clean out large amounts of white goods for recycling purposes. 

Construction Sites

Construction sites can be very hit-or-miss for rubbish removal services. Some items, like nails, excess timber, broken tools and equipment and leftover building materials are all very easy to dispose of. Other stuff, particularly more toxic or hazardous material, requires a little more preparation. Always let a rubbish removal service know if you have any sort of paint, batteries, toxic chemicals, pesticides and so on. If they can't remove this stuff for you, they will put you in contact with someone who can or a way that you can dispose of them safely.
