Tips For Managing Household Waste

Last Updated: Jan 12, 2011 by

Topic: Rubbish Removal

Whether you’re renovating, doing up the garden or just finished spring cleaning, chances are you’ll need to find the best way to deal with a considerable amount of waste. But it’s also worth putting a plan into place for managing everyday household waste too.

Tips For Everyday Waste Management

  • Recycle all paper, cardboard, glass, aluminium and plastics
  • Reduce the amount of packaging that you bring into your home
  • Take your own bags to the shops
  • Look for toys and equipment that don’t require batteries
  • Only print out paperwork when absolutely necessary
  • Put a ‘No Junk Mail’ sticker on your letterbox

Disposing Of Larger Amounts Of Waste


Re-home, recycle or sell household items that are still in good condition but you no longer use. Arrange a swap party or hold a garage sale.

Kerbside Collections

Your local council will have scheduled kerbside collections for everything from old sofas to garden waste. Some household appliances will not be collected, and there are generally size limitations.

Garden Waste

Do your bit for the environment by composting garden matter wherever possible. Consider investing in a generous compost bin for large volumes of garden waste, or a worm farm for smaller amounts such as food waste. Alternatively, find out about local council collections.

Chemical Waste

Be scrupulously careful about disposing of any paints, pesticides or motor oils. Check with your local council to find out their policy for chemical waste disposal, and whether they arrange any special collections. Seal and store all unused chemicals carefully.

Renovators’ Waste

Items such as old carpets, flooring and appliances will need to be disposed of properly. One option is to hire a skip, but there may be size limitations and you’ll have to haul everything into it yourself. Another option is to hire a rubbish removal specialist, who will load and remove any volume of waste, and recycle everything for you. Cheapest Load of Rubbish is one such service operating in and around Sydney, offering affordable disposal of everything from renovating and garden waste to broken appliances.
