Hello 2020

We hope you’ve had a wonderful start to 2020. Our team is back in full swing and we seem to have an influx of junk removal jobs on the go this week. No doubt this is due to the annual junk clear outs that happen in residential households getting ready for the new year.

Happy to see the rain has finally come for some of us. Hoping for more for those who desperately need it down south too. The grass is growing again and we’ve had a few storm cleanups happening too. Most of the time these don’t stop our team getting the job done.

We wish all the best to the families with school kids starting back this week. Particularly want to give a shout out to the small business owners – we know there will be a lot of catch-up happening in the coming days (if you haven’t already!).

If you need us for anything rubbish related – you know where to find us.

Fridge Removal

The not so humble fridge removal service is probably the most common request we get here at Brizzy Rubbish Removals. It’s no wonder when you consider the weight of most modern fridges and white goods. Some will require two people just to manoeuvre them onto the moving truck. When you have a complex exit path such as down stairs, around corners or through narrow doorways it can get even trickier. Making these tasks easier is the exact reason we are in business because many people don’t have the time, strength or experience to be able to move a fridge without doing an injury or damaging the house (or vehicle) on the way out.

Refuse Centre Fees Increase

You’re probably aware that the Brisbane City Council has a number of waste recycling centres that are used for rubbish removal in Brisbane. These are located at Willawong, Nudgee, Ferny Grove and Chandler. Domestic ‘dump vouchers’ get sent to rate holders and these can be used to cover fee’s for the disposal of waste at the refuse centres.

Recently the council announced a waste levy (paid to the Qld Government) that is affecting local Brisbane rubbish removers. The levy was put in place back in July 2019 to discourage interstate trucks coming across the border to dump rubbish in Queensland. The levy has very little effect on household wheelie bins. It does however impact local rubbish removal companies who now have to absorb the levy of $70 per tonne making a huge impact on business. Whilst we applaud any initiative to recycle more and reduce landfill, the increase is significant (almost double what we have previously paid at the refuse stations) and does have an impact on our business.
