Whether you’re cleaning out your workshop or throwing away the kid’s old toys, if you have rubbish lying around your home and yard it’s not only unsightly, it can also be a health or safety hazard. Ensuring your property is free from trash is crucial and if it won’t fit in your general weekly rubbish collection, what are the options? 

Thankfully, for residents of Sydney, you have a few options. You can take it to the tip or recycle centre yourself, or if you’re stuck for transport and time, you can wait for council clean up or hire a residential rubbish removal service. So, which is the better option? Let’s take a look.

What is Council clean up?

City councils across Australia provide a clean up service, also called a kerbside clean up, where people can drop their unwanted goods beside the road and council trucks will come by and pick these up, taking them to the local tip or recycle centre. 

For example, the City of Sydney council actually provides an easy council clean up service – with pickups offered every Wednesday provided you’re within the local government area. This service needs to be booked ahead of time.

What does Council clean up take, and not take?

For these pick up services, it’s best to check with your local council about what you can and can’t put out for them to take. Some councils provide a particular day of the year where they’ll pick up large green waste, another day where they pick up furniture, and then another where they pick up unwanted clothes, and so on. Others will take anything, at any time, provided you have a booking. 

Essentially, council may not take the following: 

  • Small items. If your rubbish can fit in a shopping bag, get rid of it yourself. Either put it in your trash can, take it for a drive to your recycle centre or donate it.
  • Chemicals and hazardous items, including paint.
  • Commercial waste – if you have a business, you need to make other arrangements as council clean up is generally only for residents.
  • Some councils will also not take trash that is the result of a home renovation.

What is professional rubbish removal?

Professional rubbish removal is using the services of a company that specialises in waste removal in your local area. Generally, a rubbish removal company like Cheapest Load of Rubbish have a team of people and fleet of trucks that will go to your place of residence or business to take away large amounts of rubbish that you wouldn’t be able to dispose of otherwise. It can include old furniture you want to throw away, green waste following a big backyard clean-up, along with general trash that just won’t fit into your bin. 

These services are designed to be efficient, with same day rubbish removal a common offering, and because the people removing the rubbish know what they are doing, you can rest assured your trash will be taken care of in a safe manner.

What does a service like Cheapest Load of Rubbish take?

A professional rubbish removal company can take most things, provided they aren’t hazardous. For example:

  • Old furniture
  • Electronics, such as computers and old mobile phones.
  • Fridges and washing machines, stoves and microwaves
