Sustainable Rubbish Collection Services with Focus on the Best Environmental Practices

by Mason Whittaker Contructor

Proper waste management is important for building sustainable and liveable cities. Technically, garbage is mostly decomposable food waste, while rubbish is mostly dry material; such as glass and metal. Trash is rubbish that includes bulky items, such as construction and demolition waste, and bulky items such as old refrigerators that require specialised rubbish collection services and handling expertise. Rubbish collection services include many activities such as collection, transport, treatment and safe disposal of waste while adhering to waste management regulations. Skip bin hire is also an option, where companies rent out the hire of a skip bin and will drop off and pick up the skip during the hire period. Proper waste management is important, as improper handling and disposal can lead to pollution of the environment, can cause diseases, and poses a wide variety of economic, administrative, and social problems that would be significant if unsolved.

Systematic waste management to minimise environmental impact

Waste management includes the collection, transport, valorisation, and disposal of waste, and includes any activity involved in the organisation of waste management, from production to its final treatment. Waste management can include anything from reducing waste and footprints, to skip bin hire and collection, to sustainable practices to dealing with that waste. Solid waste must be managed systematically to ensure environmental best practices. This is a critical aspect of environmental hygiene and needs to be incorporated into environmental planning. It includes careful planning, administrative, financial and legal functions, to provide solutions for recycling items that do not belong to garbage or trash. Common solid waste management methods include incineration, landfilling, composting, fermentation and salvaging procedures.

Handling hazardous waste

Some forms of solid and liquid waste are classified as hazardous, as they are harmful to human health and the environment. Hazardous wastes include materials that are toxic, corrosive, infectious or reactive. Toxic waste is usually essentially chemical waste from industrial, chemical or biological processes that can cause injury or death when ingested or absorbed by human skin. Infectious waste contains pathogens while radioactive waste such as isotopes of cobalt and iodine emit ionising energy that can harm living organisms. Electronic waste or e-waste includes “white goods” such as refrigerators and washing machines, and “brown goods” such as computers and cellular phones. As e-waste contains a complex combination of highly toxic substances that pose a danger to health and environment, it is also treated as hazardous waste, with respect to their disposal.     Hazardous waste handling and disposal requires specialised rubbish collection services and specialist skip bin hire as it poses specific handling, storage and disposal challenges.

Recycling waste for reuse

Glass can be pulverised and melted for use into new glass objects. Some waste management companies offer recyclables and glass skip bin hire, where cash for cans incentives can offer a small monetary value for each item recycled. Some recycling facilities may offer bottle reclamation in which bottles are sterilised for reuse.

Shredding is often used to prepare paper, plastic and metal for processing. There are paper and skip bin hire options in most locations, for organisations who have a lot of paper which requires processing, like supermarkets.

In salvaging, the waste product is stripped of its’ economically valuable components, such as the removal of lead from car batteries. The processed material is then shipped to facilities that specialise in using recycled goods for manufacturing. Mechanical biological treatment facilities process the biodegradable waste to produce refuse-derived fuel for use in power plants that meet strict standards for waste incineration.

Some of the most common consumer products recycled include steel from food and aerosol cans, glass bottles and jars, steel furnishings and equipment, and corrugated fibreboard boxes.

Utilising specialised rubbish collection methods

Solo Resource Recovery offers effective rubbish collection services, skip bin hire, and a host of other sustainable waste management solutions, while adhering to Australian regulations. Solo employs sustainable resource recovery solutions for reusing the waste material that would have otherwise gone to landfill. Materials for recycling are separated using specialised rubbish collection services, with dedicated collection vehicles and skip bin hires for each requirement.

Bulk skip bin hire for a variety of requirements

Solo Resource Recovery’s bulk bin and skip bin hire services can be used for a large range of bulky waste types, such as construction waste, demolition waste, and large bulk rubbish removals for household, industrial and commercial waste. Bulk bin hire services can be used to dispose of heavy materials such as soil, glass, rocks and concrete rubble. Building materials are particularly suitable for large multi-fit bins as these materials are usually larger in size. Bulk bins services available via Solo Resource Recovery include 65 cubic meter multifit bin, 8, 10, 15, 23 and 30 cubic meter RORO bins, bulk waste composter bins, and caged cardboard bins. The range of wheelie bins and business wheelie bins available for hire on Solo Resource Recovery extend from 60L to 360L.

Larger Wheelie Bin Hire

Larger bins ranging from 660L to 4500L are also available for hire on Solo as they are lighter and easier to manoeuvre than a steel industrial bin. The standard 240L domestic wheelie bin is most suited for household and business use in Australia.

Preserving natural resources

The recycling of waste is performed to prevent the unnecessary consumption of fresh raw materials, to reduce energy usage, the volume of landfills, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, preserving natural resources for future use.

When waste is managed the right way, it doesn’t merely eliminate the subsequent waste but also reduces the impact on the environment. Probably the biggest advantage of sustainable waste management is that it eventually leads to a better and fresher environment. Solo Resource Recovery offers rubbish collection services and skip bin hire to councils, businesses and commercial entities, the industrial sector and households, and actively works to minimise the impact of waste on environment and human health.
