Suggested reads about Waste Collection & Disposal

What do waste collection & disposal services include?

Waste poses significant sanitation problems. Aside from unpleasant smells and unsightly clutter, it can lead to serious health issues if left unchecked. By using Airtasker, affordable and reliable waste collection services are within arm’s reach. Connect with specialists in household, garden, or even building waste disposal near you who can help you safely and quickly dispose of the rubbish you’ve accumulated.

Learn more about the different services you can request:

Household waste collection

Households generate lots of rubbish from day-to-day living. Keep your home tidy and well-maintained with regular household waste disposal services. Waste collectors can get rid of general waste like plastic packaging, old car tyres, broken furniture, old clothing, and worn-out household items. They can also collect recyclables such as paper, cardboard, glass bottles, and metal cans. 

If you need help dealing with old furniture, mattresses, and appliances like refrigerators and washing machines, you can find proper removalists who specialise in these disposals. 

Garden waste collection

Book garden waste disposal near you if you need help tidying your yard or cleaning up after a storm. Waste collectors can handle green waste like grass clippings, leaves, hedge trimmings, weeds, and dead plants. They can also collect large debris, including tree stumps, logs, and large branches. These services help prevent pest infestations, making your outdoor areas healthier. 

While garden waste is typically brought to the dump for sorting and disposal, you can opt for a more eco-friendly alternative by enlisting Taskers who can process your waste into compost or mulch.

Food waste disposal

Improper food disposal of organic waste from kitchens doesn’t only cause odour and pest problems. It can also create harmful greenhouse gases. Avoid these issues by hiring disposal experts to bring your waste to a local food recycling centre. They can collect kitchen scraps like vegetable peelings and fruit scraps, and take care of leftovers like expired food, uneaten meals, and spoiled groceries. They can also collect compostable materials like eggshells, tea bags, and coffee grounds to ensure proper repurposing. 

Commercial waste collection

Waste can pile up fast in offices, retail stores, and other commercial establishments. To prevent a cluttered workplace, connect with commercial waste collection service providers who can dispose of your rubbish. This includes office waste such as paper, cardboard, and packaging materials. They can also safely dispose of electronic waste such as computers, printers, and other devices. Make the most of your newly decluttered office by booking a separate cleaning service through Airtasker.

Building waste disposal

If you’ve recently undertaken a construction or renovation project, book a building waste disposal near you to help you clear out your space much faster. This service includes removing debris such as concrete, bricks, wood, and metal scraps. Taskers ensure that construction sites are kept clean and safe and that building materials are disposed of in compliance with environmental regulations.

We have done some major pruning and have a large pile of green waste as well as some leaf bags and bins and need it removed from our home in Box Hill North. I have now added photos. Photo 1: Pile of bouganvillea that I will chop up better and move to the pile on the driveway. Photos 2-4: The pile on the driveway and green bins. Photo 5. The mirror bush that I will be cutting right down today. This is my first time on airtasker and I have no idea really. Thought I was asking for a quote but it made me put in an amount!
