6 Quick Tips About Waste Management

6 Quick Tips About Waste Management

Australians are amongst the biggest waste producers in the world, and this trend has only gotten worse. As responsible citizens, we must do everything we can to reduce the amount of waste that we generate.

This is why waste management is just so important. Waste management includes reducing the amount of waste we generate, reusing as much as we can and engaging in recycling. By following these principles, we can reduce our waste problems significantly.

As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, today I will offer you some quick tips on proper waste management. Follow these tips to ensure that you manage your waste efficiently and effectively.

1. Know your waste

Know your waste

Effective waste management starts with knowing your waste. Waste can be classified into several types: organic/green waste, household/junk waste, construction waste, chemical waste, heavy waste, and other types.

Always make sure to consider the type and the amount of waste that you are looking to remove before considering disposal.

2. Sort your waste

Know your waste

Instead of collecting all your waste together, always make sure to sort your waste first. Sort your waste into recyclable green waste and junk/household or mixed waste before looking to dispose of it. You’ll also get a chance to separate any items that are reusable while sorting your waste.

Sorting your waste will reduce the work of waste management professionals and also ensure that lesser waste ends up reaching landfills.

3. Consider a food waste recycling program

Australian homes generate a lot of food waste. As such, you should always consider having a food waste recycling program in place. Set up a caddy in your kitchen to collect food scraps before washing dishes. This food waste, which would otherwise end up in landfills, can be sent to a recycling depot instead.

4. Follow a waste reduction program

One of the keys to effective waste management is to avoid generating waste at the source. Consider your needs very carefully and avoid using disposables. Avoid excess packaging and try buying your essentials in bulk. Say no to plastic bags and use a reusable bag for shopping instead. Stop using disposable plastic bottles and carry a good quality bottle with you instead.

5. Put recycling bins where they can people can see it

If you’re a business owner, you should make sure to put recycling bins around your workplace where people can see it. It will encourage your employees to drop off recyclable waste into recycling bins rather than with other types of waste.
