We get asked many questions about rubbish removal here at 4 Waste, which is expected, as it is our industry. One of which pertains to going about rubbish removal in the wrong way.

Continue reading this article to discover the effects of proper (and improper) rubbish removal, amongst other common questions asked by customers of 4 Waste Removals.

What are the common methods of rubbish removal?

The most common methods of rubbish removal in Brisbane are the Council’s weekly curbside collection and taking your own rubbish to the tip.

However, there is a downside to both these options. With the curbside collection, you only have 240L wheely bin to dispose of your rubbish, which is no good if you’re doing a yard tidy-up or disposing of large bulky items like furniture or appliances. Hence why taking your own rubbish to the tip is the second most common option. However, here, you need to find a means of transport to take your rubbish to the tip. This can be time-consuming and costly.

What are the challenges of rubbish removal?

The biggest challenge of rubbish removal is the means of how exactly you will dispose of it. As mentioned above, both curbside collection and taking rubbish to the tip present drawbacks.

In addition to the challenges of removing the rubbish from a residence or premises, you also have to know where and how to dispose of it correctly. Improper rubbish removal can be detrimental to our environment, and if you are caught illegally dumping rubbish, you will be slapped with a hefty fine.

What are the benefits of rubbish removal?

The are many benefits associated with rubbish removal, the biggest being the environmental benefits. When rubbish is removed and disposed of correctly, it is sorted into waste types to retrieve the recyclable waste. This recyclable waste is then sent to a recycling station and saved from being dumped alongside general waste as a landfill.

In addition to the environmental benefits, rubbish removal offers health and safety benefits and the peace of mind of knowing you have done the right thing.

What are the effects of improper rubbish removal?

Improper rubbish removal results in many adverse effects, primarily on our environment. As mentioned above, rubbish that is not correctly disposed of ends up in landfill, which can lead to soil contamination, air contamination, and water contamination. This ultimately has a bad impact on not only our own health but the health of animals and marine life as well.

On a larger scale, improper rubbish removal contributes to our current climate change issues, which are progressively killing our planet.


Rubbish is something we all produce, and we all need to dispose of it. We also all need to be accountable for the rubbish we produce and take responsibility for disposing of it correctly.

Improper rubbish removal has many effects on our health and environment, which is why proper rubbish removal must always be carried out. When we correctly remove rubbish, we are helping the environment, our own health, and the health of animals and marine life.
