Harnessing the Potential of Waste in a Circular Economy by Maximising Resource Recoveryby Kelly Rodriguez Adelaide Waste & Recycling Centre
Recycling allows us to significantly reduce the environmental impact of waste. When recyclable or organic waste enters landfills, it decomposes without oxygen and emits greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. These greenhouse gases deplete the earth's upper atmosphere's protective ozone layer, resulting in global warming because the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays can easily reach the earth through the depleted ozone layer. As a result, it is critical for any Adelaide rubbish removal service to ensure that organic waste does not end up in a landfill. Organic and recyclable waste must be separated from non-recyclable waste at the point of origin. Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre (AWRC) provides industrial bins of various sizes with color-coding for temporary waste storage until the bins are full. The rubbish from the bins is then removed and recycled by Adelaide rubbish removal service to ensure that it has no negative impact on the environment or people's health.
Many Adelaide rubbish removal tasks cannot be completed without a visit to the Adelaide rubbish tip in North Plympton. The staff sort all waste that arrives for Adelaide rubbish removal at the Adelaide waste tip into recyclable and general waste. Non-recyclable waste is transported to the nearest engineered landfill. Bulk waste haulage improves the overall efficiency of Adelaide rubbish removal for residents and councils in Adelaide and surrounding areas. Because of the efficient transportation facility available at the Adelaide waste tip, bulk haulage of Adelaide rubbish removal also reduces your carbon footprint.
Items that are commonly recycled
Glass, cardboard, paper, plastic, tyres, and gas bottles are among the recyclables that are collected. Glass, electronic waste, cardboard and paper, metals, mobile phones, oil, and paint are among the Adelaide rubbish removal items that are recycled. Aluminium cans are excellent recycling candidates. Recycling aluminum cans uses 90% less energy than manufacturing new aluminum cans. It also reduces the urgency of extracting raw materials, thereby aiding in environmental conservation.
Glass containers used in the packaging of food and beverages are completely recyclable. When creating new glass products, they can substitute up to 95% of the raw materials. Cardboard is also completely recyclable. One tonne of cardboard recycled by Adelaide rubbish removal can save up to 8 cubic yards of landfill space. Newspapers and mixed papers are simple to recycle. Containers and plastic bags can be made from recycled plastic. Tyres can be reused by the Adelaide rubbish removal service by shredding to make new rubber, which can then be used to make and retread new tyres. All non-recyclable items from Adelaide rubbish removal are sent to an engineered landfill, where they are compressed as much as possible to reduce the size of the landfill and increase its capacity to hold waste.
Hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide
Pesticides and garden chemicals, swimming pool and spa bath chemicals, insect spray, solvents and glues, medicines, motor oil, batteries, computers, laptops, and other hazardous substances are commonly found in the average Australian household. Hazardous waste disposal in Adelaide must be done in a safe and legal manner. It should not be buried in the garden because the hazardous waste contained within it can poison and leach into the surface or groundwater. This can have a long-term impact on the region's flora and fauna. It should not be poured down the drain because hazardous waste can corrode pipes and clog stormwater drains.
