Did you know that rubbish is generally broken down into seven or more different types? It’s useful for you to know what’s piling up in the yard or driveway of your Brisbane home or business, because that will affect how you get rid of it.
The seven most common types of garbage are:
This can be called ‘municipal waste’ or ‘black bag waste’ and is the type of general household rubbish we all have. It can be liquid or solid.
Hazardous waste is usually regulated by federal government and includes some dangerous pharmaceuticals, mercury, solvents, some paints, aerosol cans etc. It may be inflammable, toxic, corrosive or reactive. This type of waste can create public health issues.
Pharmaceutical waste like that produced by health care centres, clinics, hospitals, vets etc. may also be found in the home, and should be disposed of responsibly, even if it is not marked hazardous.
E-waste is generated from electrical devices, including computers and computer parts, printers, DVD and music players, TVs, telephones, vacuum cleaners and so on. These may contain toxic metals like lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants, which are all harmful to humans and the environment.
These are items and materials that can be converted into a reusable material. They are commonly found in household garbage -including paper, cardboard, beverage and food containers, metal and glass.
This is usually bulky and weighty material, generated during construction and renovation projects. It may include materials such as ceiling tiles, plumbing fixtures, carpeting, wood, concrete, bricks, fill dirt, etc.
This is comprised of food and landscaping waste, which will break down naturally under the right conditions. It includes grass, weed clippings, tree limbs and branches, waste from vegetable produce, bread and grains, as well as paper products.
These are the seven main types of rubbish that affect Brisbane homes. Industrial buildings also create industrial waste from glass, leather, textile, food, electronics, plastic and metal product manufacture. All of these may require the help of a professional rubbish removal service to dispose of responsibly and legally.
