Every Australian household will be affected by China’s ban on imports of our recycling. If you’re like many other Australians, you’re wondering why a decision made in a foreign country thousands of kilometres across the sea should make recycling more important than ever in this country. Here’s what you need to know.
We all have that one area around the house that is the junk pile. Filled with old magazines, newspapers, damaged bicycles, pieces of wood you were going to “use for something”, your grandmother’s old carpet, furniture you were going to repurpose and any number of bits and pieces no-one wants. The junk pile slowly gets bigger each year. To clear it all out, you’re looking at a few dozen trips to the dump, so it’s tempting to put it off until next year. But you don’t need to wait; you can hire a skip bin!
In Australia, we’re on-the-go consumers, quite used to disposable stuff. Our landfills contain an enormous amount of potentially useful material, but once it’s there, it’s reached the end of its cycle and these sites can be toxic.
We all know by now that plastic poses a threat to our oceans, to sea life and ourselves. But despite the outspoken vocal awareness campaigns in Australia, we are still in danger, so it’s time to get real — and practical.
Because we are situated in Boronia, in Victoria’s South Eastern suburbs, pricing for
our services is dependent on the distance we will need to travel to drop off and collect the rubbish skips.
