For Domestic and Commercial Waste Recycling, Contact the Nearest Waste Management and Recycling

by Kelly Rodriguez Adelaide Waste & Recycling Centre

Waste management has evolved into a crucial problem. Our world has accumulated a massive amount of waste as a result of the exponential rise in global population over the last few centuries, especially since there is still a scarcity of proper disposal solutions. Every year, Australia generates 12.6 million tonnes of MSW, 27 million tonnes of C&D, and 21.9 million tonnes of C&I.

Why should you recycle your biowaste?

The key advantages of recycling biowaste include:

·         Saves energy – Recycling biowaste in facilities generates biogas which then enables the production of energy. 

·         Saves resources – Biowaste is converted into compost in facilities. The compost is then utilized as an organic fertilizer for gardening and agriculture while avoiding the application of other fertilizers. Compost happens to improve soil quality, including its porosity, fertility, nutrient retention and water retention.

·         Other fractions such as glass, paper, metals and plastics never contain organic matter, which basically helps better the non-organic recycling, in quality, quantity, and inefficiency as well.

·         Recycling biowaste also helps the air and water bodies remain uncontaminated – To treat biowaste in facilities helps avoid odour problems, also leachates in landfills and gas emissions. Biowaste is amongst the precursors of dioxins production, and furans in incinerators.

·         Soil quality upgrades – The compost aid in improving the fertility and structure of degraded soils and deficiencies in organic matter that are quite common throughout Australia.

·         Reduces the greenhouse gas emissions – As we all know, how fast landfill emissions are contributing to global warming, one of the biggest advantages of treating biowaste in facilities is that it helps bring down the emission of gases, for example, Methane and Carbon dioxide, significantly responsible for global warming.

·         Lessens waste that is sent to the landfill

How can you secure your trash load before bringing it to the facility?

When transporting waste, you must be extra cautious to avoid problems on the road and to ensure a comfortable journey throughout.

·         As suggested by the AWRC and team:

·         Use a load rated tie-down strap, available from most hardware shops.

·         Use a cover to prevent material from spilling onto the roadway.

·         Avoid overloading your vehicle.

·         Separate the items by waste type, to allow for a smooth unload.

·         When in any doubt, throw that extra strap or rope over.

Adelaide Commercial Waste services

The AWRC can help you with both commercial and household waste disposal. However, it is always advisable to consult with a professional before putting the trash truck on the road. The facility will give free waste evaluation services. If you are a fully operational factory or a family with a larger number of members, you can schedule a regular collection or one-time collection and disposal for liquid waste, recycling bins, industrial bins, and more.

With growing challenges in China and Indonesia prohibiting waste recycling, it is up to the rest of us to maintain our recycling practices so that we are prepared for any upgrades that the waste industry may face in the near future. Contamination is one of the raging fears instilled in those charged with managing thousands of tonnes of garbage in order to keep a city safe and secure. Contaminating the recycling bin with general garbage may render the entire bin 'unsuitable' for the recycling process; as a result, the contaminated bin will end up in the landfill, contributing to toxic gas emissions.

Nonetheless, public awareness and ongoing education could greatly improve the contamination problem. For many years, the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre has collected, managed, and recycled commercial and household waste from all over Adelaide. With their resource recovery and recycling technologies, they have grown to stand out today.

In a nutshell

Let us all pledge to recycle our recyclable waste by using our local recycling facilities, such as the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre. If your municipality does not offer collection services, contact the nearest resource recovery and waste recycling centre. Make an effort to separate your plastic, metal, glass, and paper waste at home. Find ways to reuse non-recyclable waste items (if at all possible).
