China’s recent move to stop importing mixed recyclable rubbish means that Australians are sitting on way too much waste.
With local demand for recycling their waste, councils have been forced to process more materials and in order for China to accept them, they must be of high quality.
In general, Australia has improved in the area of recycling greatly in the past decade, now recycling over 50% of household garbage. This means that at least half of our population is actively recycling, whilst there are opportunities for growth with the remaining half.
Did you know that litter and street cleaning among local councils in Victoria costs the government on average almost $80 million every year? This begs the question: if people stopped littering and dumping illegally, how much more could our local government do with that money for education, healthcare and so on?
Your garden waste, which is classified as green waste, can have the potential to become hazardous to the environment. It may be difficult to believe that natural products such as your “green” materials can cause litter, but it accounts for much land damage, especially when landfills are being dumped with such materials.
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.
