Recycling and Waste Management in South Australia


Although South Australia has a various range of weather patterns, from hot and arid in the interior to more moderate, wetter conditions in the southern ranges, it’s still very much a state filled with outdoor people who enjoy outdoor activities. So the condition of the surrounding environment is an important part of the South Australian lifestyle.

The South Australian government has already put in place an innovative environmental plan that aims to reduce the amount of landfill by 25% by 2014. Plans such as this one compel people to be more environmentally aware, and encourage us to remember the significance of proper waste management and to embrace the use of recycling bins. South Australia has an ambitious goal, but with everyone’s participation it may be achievable.

Rubbish removal

In the workplace, recreational parklands, or at home in the backyard, rubbish removal can be a prospective problem. Sometimes the problem of getting rid of the rubbish you intend to gather up may put a stop to your clean up plan before you even get started. Where do you place all the accumulated rubbish, and who disposes of it?

If you need a more frequent rubbish removal service, then consider a regular service that will come to your home or workplace and dispose of the waste for you.  Rubbish removal and recycling services can be found by searching the internet or the telephone directory.

A one off ‘working bee’ day calls for rubbish removal of a different kind, and your needs could be met by a single day rental of a ‘roll on roll off’ bin hire. South Australia has many professional bin hire services available and they’re ideal for a clean up day that creates a big volume of rubbish.

Recycling bins

When it comes to recycling bins, South Australia's local council’s small household bins are used by most households, but there are many more options available for all sorts of recycling needs. If you’re serious about recycling as many resources as possible, then consider a larger 1.5 to 3 cubic metre recycling bin and aim to expand your recycling efforts.

What can be safely recycled?

Make the most of your larger recycling bin by learning some of the more unusual things that can be safely placed in it. Apart from the usual paper, cardboard and plastics, mobile phones, concrete, polystyrene, fluoro tubes and electrical components are all safe to toss into your recycling bin.
