Why green waste removal is important

Most of the Australia’s waste ends up in landfills. This is not just potentially dangerous to the environment, but it is also becoming increasingly more expensive. One of the ways to cut down on waste disposal in landfills is by implementing green waste removal, where green waste is taken to recycling plants instead of landfills.

According to figures released by the Federal Government, a lot of food waste is finding its way to landfills. The damage resulting from this could be extensive as food waste generates an estimated 6.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to reduce this problem and improve landfills, residents are encouraged to consider green waste removal in Brisbane.

Recycling your green waste means that it won’t go to landfills, which helps to reduce the production of greenhouse gas, leachate and pollution to the environment. But that’s not all, in this article I’ll share with you the benefits of green waste removal and why you should take the recycling of your green waste very seriously.

It is great for the environment

Whenever you place green waste into any 4 Waste walk-in garden skip bins, it goes to the recycling plant for composting. Composting is great for the environment because it allows the waste to decompose naturally, using oxygen. This produces materials that are good for the soil. Compost vastly improves the soil quality of an area, which promotes the growth of healthy crops.

When you invest in green waste removal for your property, you are actually investing in the future of your environment and contributing to the earth.

It enhances your quality of life

Green waste is not just food scraps it also includes waste materials such as grass, twigs, shrubs, leaves and branches among others. Leaving piles of green waste lying around your property can pose a hazard to your quality of life. Generally such waste tends to attract critters like snakes, bugs and mosquitoes. These can cause damage not just to your home and the structure of your property, but also to your health and quality of life.
