Waste removal or rubbish removalWhile many Australian people assume when you say “I’m going to take out the rubbish” you are talking about organic type food related kitchen type waste – the phrase might be a little incorrect for that use. Typically when you are referring to organic type kitchen waste that goes into the bin, with the recycling and green waste removed, it could be referred to as “garbage” or “kitchen waste” as it contains things that will rot and decompose.

What is “rubbish” then?

This is more the typical term when referring to the sort of thing you would find on a council cleanup day – things that won’t rot like old furniture, metal objects, old appliances etc. These items are typically referred to as “Rubbish” or “Junk” (typically used in the US) and often are too big to fit in the refuse bin. Confusingly people very often refer to a refuse or waste bin as a “rubbish” bin which must be another of the things in English that drive people new to the language crazy. You can also use the term “rubbish” to refer to something that is not of very good quality, like a poorly made movie or even someones opinion – just to add more confusion.
