Suggested reads about Waste Collection & Disposal

What do waste collection & disposal services include?

By definition, waste is any unwanted or unusable material disposed of after primary use. Waste collection & disposal covers all types of garbage. This includes residential waste, commercial waste, garden waste, and food waste. A specialist collects them and takes it to the appropriate disposal facility. 

Waste poses problems with sanitation. Aside from unpleasant smells and unsightly clutter, waste can cause health problems if left unchecked. Fortunately, affordable and reliable waste collection services are within arm’s reach. Your Tasker can help you dispose of small or large amounts of waste safely and quickly. 

Household waste disposal

Our Taskers can collect and dispose of all types of household waste. Clearance services include food scrap, wastewater, construction debris, and dog waste disposal. Aside from going to the landfill, some Taskers can turn food waste, garden waste, and animal waste into compost. What’s more,

Taskers can do general waste disposal and rubbish removals, such as old car tyres, newspapers, and broken furniture. While you’re clearing out household waste, you may want to go all-out and book a house cleaning service, too. Or if you’re moving house, you can request removal services to help you pack, relocate, and unpack your items. 

Garden waste collection

Garden waste collectors can tidy up your yard, help clean up after a storm or take away all types of garden debris. Green waste or garden waste clearance includes branches, grass clippings, trimmed trees, hedge cuttings, and dirt. Do you have lots of trash to dispose of? No problem! Taskers can load green waste into a truck, ute, or trailer.

Then, they’ll bring the waste to the dump for sorting and disposal. If you prefer a more eco-friendly alternative, you can find Taskers who can ensure your waste gets turned into compost or mulch.

Food waste disposal

Food waste isn’t meant to be disposed of like regular rubbish. In fact, improper food disposal can create harmful greenhouse gases. However, food waste disposal can be tedious and confusing. The good news is you can have someone do the work for you. 

Rather than stinking up your trash, fruit & vegetable peelings, used coffee grounds, eggshells, and stale bread make for rich compost. Hire a Tasker today to collect your food waste or turn it into compost. For items you can’t compost, your Tasker can bring your food waste to a local food recycling centre. 

Commercial waste collection

Waste can accumulate fast in offices and establishments. Before you know it, you could be dealing with an unsightly, dirty, or crowded space. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Airtasker connects you to affordable and reliable commercial waste collection services. Your Tasker can collect general waste (e.g. scrap papers) and bulky waste such as worn-out furniture.

Further, waste collectors can also bring electronic waste to a certified e-waste disposal facility. Please make the most of your newly decluttered office by booking a cleaning service through our platform.
