Today rubbish removal, Sydney, has become somewhat complicated. But it is all for a very, very good cause. Our poor planet is reeling under the impact of excessive mining, indiscriminate ‘slash and burn’ farming, and above all, greedy fuel usage and carbon emissions.
The City of Sydney, in line with most responsible and progressive cities of the world, is changing the way we dispose of our garbage. No longer is all rubbish indiscriminately bulldozed into landfills and covered up.
Sydney has an up to date system of waste treatment facilities, where garbage is sorted into useful categories and sent to plants where the materials can be re-used.
The citizens of Sydney are encouraged to help the system along by:
either keeping a selection of different coloured bins and sorting the various types of trash from their homes or businesses into the appropriate bin, or by
making use of the services of a responsible rubbish removal service who will take their rubbish to an approved sorting and disposal facility. Some offer a really cheap rubbish removal service and same day response too.
If you contact such a caring and eco-friendly rubbish removal Sydney company, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are doing your own bit for the environment.
The rubbish you throw away needs very careful sorting. All kinds of materials are thrown away, and many are fully recyclable. Some of these materials are wood, cardboard and paper, metals, and synthetic materials.
Among the most common synthetic materials for wrappings and utensils this day is one or other form of plastic. Rubbish removals deal with plenty of this. Fortunately many types of plastics are recyclable. They can be used over and over again.
Many types of plastic are marked with a standard system of triangles, with identifying numbers in them.
The number in the triangle classifies the type of plastic a container is prefabricated from, as well as what sort of recycled goods can be prefabricated from it.
Type 1 PET (or PETE) Polyester fibres, thermoformed sheet, strapping, and soft drink bottles
Type 2 HDPE Bottles, grocery bags, milk jugs,
recycling bins, agricultural pipe, base cups, automobile stops, playground equipment
Type 3 PVC (or V) Pipe, fencing, shower curtains, lawn
chairs, non-food bottles and children’s toys.
Type 4 LDPE Plastic bags, 6 pack rings, various
containers, dispensing bottles, tubing, and various moulded work equipment.
Type 5 PP Auto parts, industrial fibres, food
containers, and dishware.
Type 6 PS Desk accessories, cafeteria trays,
plastic utensils, toys, video cassettes and cases, clamshell containers, packaging peanuts, and insulation board and styrofoam.
Type 7 O (or Other) Bottles, plastic lumber applications,
Headlight lenses, and country shields/glasses.
Type 9 ABS High-impact and chemical-resistant
When the plastic is recycled, the letter ‘R’ is put in front of the code (eg. ABS becomes RABS) Some, such as polystyrene, are usually not recycled again.
Plastic bags are also tricky. They are often more trouble than they are worth. Cling wrap can't be recycled, nor can any contaminated bags, such as those that contained food, for example. There should be no labels or stickers on them. Many rubbish removals and waste treatment facilities like not to accept plastic bags.
Sometimes you will see special plastic bag recycling bins at shopping malls. These are some of the bags requested that you deposit in them:
• newspaper, book or entrepot wrappings
• dry cleaning bags
• produce bags and packaging
• toilet paper, napkin, and paper towel packaging
• furniture, appliance or electronic wrap
• grocery bags
• Plastic food storage bags that have been cleaned and dried
• plastic cereal box liners
• plastic shipping envelopes
You should not deposit heavily painted plastic bags in this rubbish removal and recycling system, and as far as possible, remove the labels, stickers and tickets.
