Waste disposal companies throughout Australia have ethical and legal obligations to provide their services in such a way that they lessen the impact of waste on the environment, through recycling, proper waste storage and transportation regulation.
Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and waste disposal companies who do not comply with Australian laws and regulations can cause serious environmental concerns.
Recently a waste company was fined $30,000 for waste transport and dumping irregularities by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). According to the EPA, the fines reflected the environmental threat that irregular or unlawful waste disposal practices have. This means that now, more than ever, you have to ensure that your waste disposal company follows the rules and regulations mandated by state and federal bodies.
This also means that if you’re looking for a waste management service provider, ensure that you look out for one that has the following policies:
