Now in its 24th year, National Recycling Week is set to take place from the 11th to the 17th of November.

The week is an opportunity for us as individuals, businesses, communities, a country and the Earth as a whole, to consider how we can become more effective with recycling our waste and rubbish.

Hosted by Planet Ark, National Recycling Week 2019 aims to educate communities on recycling and effective waste management.

Rubbish Recycling from your rubbish pick up

According to recent research, 91% of Australian households have access to kerbside recycling of municipal waste, and 98% of us participated in some form of recycling. With 90% of Australians agreeing that recycling is the right thing to do, National Recycling Week is the perfect time to encourage recycling of both household waste and larger, bulkier items such as mattresses, couches and other large furniture.

Rubbish pick up recycling is more environmentally friendly

It’s become common to see people leaving old lounge suites on nature strips in the hope that someone will give them a new home; however it’s more likely that they will end up vandalised and strewn over the road, adding to the issue of illegal dumping.

1300 Rubbish specialises in hands on removal of this type of bulky and awkward household materials. What’s more, is that we try to recycle as much of what we collect wherever possible.

By recycling wherever possible, we are protecting the environment and keeping recyclable materials from landfill.

Once we collect your rubbish from your homes and businesses, we sort it before we tip it which gives us a better chance of being able to recycle the majority of it. Your rubbish is then taken to waste stations that offer as many recycling facilities as possible. Gyprock, for example, is taken to a gyprock specific waste site where we can guarantee that 100% of it will be recycled. The components we can extract from gyprock actually go towards making more gyprock, which is called closed looped recycling.

Take a look at the rubbish in your home, garden and worksite and consider how much of it could be recycled this National Recycling Week. As we do every year, 1300 Rubbish are supporting National Recycling Week 2019, so it’s time to take advantage.

There’s no better time to have your household junk, garden waste or construction rubbish collected and recycled. Call today on 1300 78 22 47 or book online.
