There are many ways to help the environment; from buying products that use bio-degradable wrapping and printing as little as necessary to saving on water and electricity, it is surprisingly easy to be more environmentally-friendly.
However, while the examples are above are obvious ways to help the environment, one less obvious way is to make the switch to Brisbane skip bins. If you’re wondering how skip bins can help the environment, then continue reading this article.
Reduce Landfill Waste
According to The Australian Bureau of Statistics, the average Australian creates just over 2,000kgs of waste each year, and 40% of the total waste generation in Australia ends up in landfill – that’s around 20 million tonnes!!
By using Brisbane skip bins, you can help reduce these figures. With 4 Waste Removals, your rubbish is taken to a Brisbane resource recovery centre and is sorted to ensure all recyclable waste is removed from the non-recyclable waste that ends up on landfill.
As mentioned about, but using Brisbane skip bins, you can be assured that your waste is sorted to ensure all recyclable waste materials are processed correctly. At 4 Waste Removals, we go a step further by offering two types of skip bins; a junk skip bin and a garden skip bin. Our garden skip bins accept only 100% green waste which can then be composted and put back into the soil.
Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Without proper waste management, your rubbish will not be sorted and it will all be sent to landfill – even your green waste. While you may think that this is fine because green waste is biodegradable, it is actually quite harmful to the environment.
When green waste decays a landfill, the greenhouse gas methane is formed.
By using Brisbane skip bins, especially garden skip bins for garden waste, you’re reducing the amount of green waste that goes to landfill and therefore, reducing greenhouse gas emission, and it seems that many Australia’s are conscious of this. According to the National Waste Report 2018, between 2006-07 and 2015-16, methane emissions from landfills fell by 20%, continuing a declining trend since 1990.
Reduces your Carbon Footprint
A carbon footprint is defined as being ‘the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities of a particular individual, organization, or community‘.
Illegal dumping of rubbish still happens and it is a real problem. It is damaging to infrastructures and natural areas, and it causes chemical and physical pollution which ends up in Brisbane neighbourhoods and waterways.
While it may seem like the easy (and free) solution to getting rid of rubbish, it is very harmful to the environment, and if caught, the guilty party will cop a hefty fine.
By using Brisbane skip bins, you are provided with a very affordable and very easy solution to your rubbish removal problem; you’re helping the environment and you don’t have to worry about coping a fine!
