Posted by on Sep 3, 2018 in Waste

There are so many different types of waste out there that it can be confusing what to do with them, how to manage them and how to get rid of them. Luckily, we have all the vital information for you below in regards to waste:

  • Everyday Waste
    When we talk about this waste, we are referring to the everyday rubbish that you collect in your bins. This type of rubbish has be collected by your local council – and broken down into sections (recycling, compost etc) and will not be collected by rubbish removalists or skip bin hires.
  • E-Waste
    Ever wonder what happens to technology and computers? They get disposed off in a sophisticated manner due to their construction and components. So anything that has pieces of electronics in it is considered e-waste and requires a special type of disposal, which is why you have to leave it to professionals.


  • Green Waste
    Everything that comes from the ground – trees, flowers, dirt, and more – is considered green waste. The name gives it away obviously. But the best thing about this type of waste is that it be reused! The natural composition of green waste means it can be broken into fertilisers and soils, and be used back in the garden again! How cool is that?
  • “Large” Waste
    So what do we mean when we are referring to large waste? We are talking about the likes of furniture, desks, kitchen sections and more. Anything that is large and takes up a lot of space is considered in this category. And when it comes to disposing of this type of waste, you might have to call a professional to come in and help you.
  • Hazardous Waste
    There is no questioning that when it comes to hazardous waste, you should take precautions when it comes to removing it. You should not at any circumstance be unprepared for removing this type of waste. Stuff like batteries, chemicals, asbestos-related products, machinery and more, should be handled with care, and in most cases, be left to handled by a professional.
