Hard Waste Collection – what is hard waste and how do you get rid of it?

We at Adelaide Rubbish pride ourselves in being experts in hard waste collection and removal.

Getting rid of hard waste is more difficult than it sounds. The weekly rubbish pick up won’t take it and it is difficult to know where the nearest recycling centre is. You may not even have the right vehicle to transport it. So what do you do? The answer is simple: you hire a company that provides a hard waste collection service.

What is hard rubbish?

First of all let’s clarify what hard rubbish is exactly. It refers to unwanted items that have certain disposal requirements like white good and mattresses. Certain kinds of garden waste like branches also fall into this category. Usually, when we talk about hard waste collection, it means big, bulky items that are difficult move. Examples include dishwashers, fridges, freezers, washing machines and the like.

Why do these items pose a challenge?

These items pose a challenge because most local authorities only offer one hard waste collection a year. It is hard to believe bit it is true. This means that you cannot dispose of your large items in the normal collection. This means that you need to dispose of hard waste items yourself or make alternative arrangements for hard waste collection.

If there’s no hard waste collection, I can do it myself, right?

Yes you can, providing you have a suitable vehicle and are within distance of a recycling center. Not everybody has a truck or trailer to transport such items. Furthermore, it may require several trips depending on how much you need to dispose of. This can be very time consuming and inconvenient. Don’t forget that moving large items like fridges and dishwashers can result in injury if you are not familiar with lifting and moving heavy items.

Fortunately, there is an easier way! A hard waste collection service will dispose all of your unwanted hard waste for you.
