Waste Reduction and Rubbish Removals in Brisbane

Thanks for stopping by Brizzy Rubbish Removals.  You are no doubt gearing up for the big holiday period over Christmas and the New Year in Brisbane.  The weather has been holding out just great (still not too hot out there Brisbane) and our rubbish removal guys have been hard at it every day getting the junk and rubbish out of Brisbane homes and into the recycling stations around Brisbane Metro and surrounds.

There have been a lot of amazing waste reduction strategies we’ve seen coming out this year which just goes to show how committed Brisbane is to reduce reuse and recycle.  We are just as committed to this idea at Brizzy Rubbish Removals and we try our hardest to always ensure as much as possible is recycled whether it’s fridges and washing machines or old printers and computer equipment (e-waste) we will get the job done fast so you don’t have to mess around with rubbish.  We load, you relax and that’s exactly how it happens.

If you jump over to our Facebook page you’ll see that we often uncover great little ideas around rubbish reduction and recycling in Brisbane.  Don’t be shy, feel free to comment and let us know of any other recycling and waste reduction ideas you know of.

Recycling Household Rubbish and White Goods in Brisbane, Queensland

You would be surprised to find out just how much of our rubbish can be recycled these days. Read on to find out how to recycle household rubbish in Brisbane, Queensland.  If you have whitegoods to be removed in Brisbane call us for a free estimate.

Did you know that white goods, for example, large kitchen appliances, are often recyclable? In many instances, they can be repaired, sent for reuse by second-hand dealers, or the metal can be recovered at metal recycling stations where it is shredded.   Most charities can’t accept white goods for recycling due to safety testing requirements. 

White goods can include:

  • Refrigerators
  • Microwave ovens
  • Air conditioning units
  • Washing machines
  • Ovens/cooktops
  • Dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Deep freezers

If you need white goods recycling in Brisbane, get in touch with us. We know that white goods are often left to accumulate in the garage because they are bulky, heavy, and hard to transport. This is where we come in! We will come to your house and pick up your white goods and household rubbish for you to save you the hassle. Where possible, we will ensure that we recycle as much as possible and dispose of items in an eco-friendly manner at approved Brisbane City Council recycling stations.

What Are the Benefits of Recycling White Goods?

White goods contain significant amounts of non-renewable, but often valuable, materials including metals, plastics, gases (refrigerants) and insulation materials.

The benefits of recycling white goods are twofold. Firstly, recycling reusable materials gives these items a second life and keeps them alive in the economy, reducing the demand for new materials to be created. Secondly, the recycling process prevents toxic chemicals often present in white goods (such as flame retardants) from entering the environment and polluting soils or waterways.

What About Computers and E-waste?

You may be surprised to know that even home computers and electronic waste can, in many instances, be recycled. Even if the whole, complete product cannot be recycled, many individual computer components can be recycled. So instead of just throwing it in the bin, call us for an estimate and to book a pickup. We can dispose of your old computers and e-waste using approved electrical and computer recycling depots. Feel good knowing that you are doing your part for the planet and keeping stuff out of the landfill.
