Upgrading home appliances is something that everyone does from time to time. However, most people choose to toss out their old appliances instead of properly disposing of them. Already, there are over 45 million appliances owned by Australians and 2.5 million of these end up in landfills every year. While this consumes landfill space, white goods also release non-renewable materials into the environment.
As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, a leading Brisbane waste removal company, let me tell you that white goods should be disposed of differently as compared to regular waste. Today I will offer you some useful tips for disposing white goods in Brisbane in the proper manner.
1. Resell or donate your white goods
In all my experience as a waste management professional in Brisbane, I’ve noticed that many people throw out white goods which are still functional. If the white goods that you want to get rid are still in working condition, why not consider reselling them instead?
Reselling your appliances can fetch you some money that you can put towards buying your new appliances. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of selling your white goods, then you should consider a donation as the next best option.
2. Recycle your white goods
White goods contain significant amounts of plastic, metal, refrigerant gases and other valuable materials which are non-renewable. Improper disposal of white goods causes these materials and toxic flame retardants to be released into the environment. Recycling of white goods helps in retaining these valuable materials in the economy.
There are several ways to go about recycling your unwanted white goods. Some appliance manufacturers offer take-back schemes for their white goods which you can take advantage. Alternatively, you can also take your unwanted white goods to your nearest Brisbane resource recovery centre for recycling.
3. Hire a Brisbane waste removal company
While you can certainly take your unwanted white goods to the closest Brisbane resource recovery centre, getting it, there is often easier said than done. To do so, you’ll have to borrow or hire a UTE or trailer, load your white goods into it and drive all the way to the resource centre. You’ll need to spend a significant amount of time an effort in doing so.
On the other hand, having a company come and remove white goods from your home is a much easier solution. Reputed waste removal companies, such as us at 4 Waste Removals can help you with disposing of white goods in Brisbane.
