Interesting facts about recycling and the impact on the Footscray environment.

The term “recycling” is something which we regularly hear. We’re constantly reminded to be conscious of the environment, but do you really know what recycling is? In other words, recycling entails processing rubbish and transforming it into something brand new. The waste becomes a raw material that can be used for manufacturing a new product or it can be transformed into something else. You are going to be surprised to find that items regularly produced from recycling include toothbrush handles, winter jackets and coffins! There are companies across the world that specialise in recycling and here in Australia, Melbourne recycling is currently encouraging every individual to do their role. 

Therefore, we’ve prepared some fascinating facts you have to know concerning recycling in Australia. An Australian produces more waste than any individual from several other nations on earth. On average, a family in the nation generates around 400 kilograms of waste materials yearly. With or without the presence of oxygen, waste substances degrade.

All these waste-generated compounds significantly contribute to global warming–25 per cent more than carbon dioxide. If you ditch a glass bottle in a landfill, it might take around 4,000 to some million years before it disintegrates. The fantastic news is glass materials could be recycled over and over again. You will be surprised to discover that when you recycle aluminium merchandise, you can save a good amount of energy as well.

It would be a lot easier to ditch all your rubbish into the bin. But, you can greatly contribute to environment-friendly waste elimination when you take some opportunity to take into account the materials or things you are disposing of. If you are not sure how to sort the items in your bin, have a peek at our guide here about which you can and can’t put in our mobile skips.

How to make sure your waste is recycled in Maribyrnong.

It’s true you could save a little money using your own trailer or ute to eliminate your waste.  Recyclable materials will soon be transformed into new materials and green waste will become the world’s food. You can save yourself from the problem of making excursions to the landfill while ensuring your rubbish will be disposed of appropriately and carefully.

One of the most common waste materials dumped into landfills is batteries. Every year, Australians buy 350 million units and roughly 67 per cent of them are dumped into the landfills. Nickel from waste batteries can still be recycled and used for manufacturing stainless steel. However, not all rubbish removed from homes and businesses necessarily have to end up in the landfill.

Therefore it would be easy to think there’s nothing new to learn about recycling, right? Wrong! Using less of the things we actually don’t need and ensuring if we need to throw stuff we use a reputable and responsible rubbish removal team.

On the flip side, the responsibility of recycling does not have to completely lie on the shoulders of large businesses. Just by taking a look at the facts we listed above, you can understand that as Australians, we can make a bigger difference when each of us does our role in recycling. You may have hired a skip before and wondered where your rubbish ends up?

What rubbish can (and can’t) be recycled in Footscray.

You’d be amazed to discover how much waste materials can be recycled.

On the flip side, the things in the bins that can’t be recycled will be regarded as landfill substances. Of course, we don’t expect you to sort the rubbish you put within our skip bins. But you’re free to play a part in contributing to green recycling.
