Illegally dumped rubbish is not pretty. No one likes to look at it, not only is it an eyesore but it brings down the aesthetics of a neighbourhood and always seems to sit where it is for months on end. Each year thousands of household items get left on roadways, in bushlands and around unused properties.
Most of the time you will see old computers, mattresses, green waste and broken household appliances, however, the number one item illegally dumped is old furniture. Most of the time old furnishings get left behind because people don’t have enough time to discard their furniture properly or simply can’t be bothered.
Not only is dumped decor horrible to look at but it is terrible for the environment. When it rains, waste blocks drainage areas and leaks contaminants into our waterways and bush areas, killing vegetation and affecting the health of water ecosystems. Much of the time harmful chemicals are dumped along with furniture and are just left to slowly kill local vegetation and pollute our waterways.
>The old furniture on the side of the road issue
Many times rubbish won’t be collected until the local council is notified. This means that furniture could be sitting out on the side of the road for months at a time. All rubbish that is collected gets sent to landfill, anything that could have been saved and recycled is lost. Overall the practice of illegal furniture dumping is affecting the environment through poisoning bushland and waterways while adding to the landfill.
It pays to remove your old decor responsibility, and that’s where we can help. The team at the Cheapest Load of Rubbish are passionate about doing our part to help the environment.
