At Sydney Rubbish Removal, we understand how important rubbish removal in the construction industry is. According to a report from Digital Foundations1, the construction industry in Australia contributes to 8% of our GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and brings in over $134 billion into our country’s economy. This can start to give you an idea of how much waste the construction industry generates. Apart from general construction waste such as electrical wiring, nails and rubble, it can also contain hazardous waste as well. As removing construction waste isn’t simple,here is why you should be hiring a rubbish removal company in Sydney.

Safety

Construction rubbish and waste is not like your average household waste. A skip bin will require you to sort through and dispose of all the waste yourself, making you susceptible to injuries caused by various nails, metals and timber hidden throughout the waste. Hazardous waste such as fluorescent bulbs and aerosol cans require trained professionals to correctly and safely dispose of the waste.

Time

Managing your own waste disposal requires you to spend long hours sorting through construction waste.You can end up spending ages identifying what can be recycled and what can’t when separating materials such as packing paper, metal, cardboard, timber, electrical wiring, nails and roofing.At Sydney Rubbish Removal, we have an experienced team of professionals who can quickly identify what items can be recycled and what can be disposed of, saving you time and stress so you can get on with what’s more important.

Environmental

With the world being more focused on the sustainability of our environment more than ever before, reducing their carbon footprint is a goal for many construction companies. According to the Australian National Waste Policy2, the construction industry alone contributes around 20.4 MT (Mega tonnes) of waste in Australia. This means that a very large percentage of the waste a construction site generates needs to be either recycled or reused. As not all waste can be simply dumped into a landfill, hiring a professional rubbish removal company in Sydney means that they will know exactly how to dispose of your waste in the most environmentally sustainable way possible.

Legal

When it comes to the disposal and management of construction waste, there are many requirements, policies and various legislation that companies must adhere to. It could involve reducing safety and hazard risks or ensuring the right procedures are followed when removing and disposing of construction site rubbish.Hiring a professional company such as Sydney Rubbish Removal will make sure that the right procedures are followed to ensure you aren’t faced with any fines, misconduct or environmental liabilities.
