3 Mistakes Great Rubbish Removalists Never Make

3 Mistakes Great Rubbish Removalists Never Make

You may not be aware of it, but proper rubbish removal is a fairly complicated process –I didn’t before I entered the Waste Industry. Most people don’t have the knowledge, the skills, or the time required to ensure safe and proper rubbish removal. And, as a result, they end up making mistakes with rubbish removal – knowingly or unknowingly. Unfortunately, this is also the case with some rubbish removalists and service providers in Brisbane – but not here at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins.

4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins specialises in rubbish removal in Brisbane, and let me tell you; some basic waste removal mistakes should be avoided at all costs. Here are some common mistakes reputed and professional rubbish removalists in Brisbane will never make.

1. Dump waste illegally

Unfortunately, some rubbish removers engage in illegally dumping waste here in Brisbane. While some people dump rubbish in remote bushlands, other rubbish removalists end up burning rubbish to get rid of it. Both of these are highly improper ways of waste disposal.

Simply leaving rubbish in remote bushlands or on the side of the road does no good to anyone. This is because the waste is exposed to weather elements, making it unusable. Local councils have strict rules regarding proper rubbish removal and anyone caught dumping waste illegally will be fined up to $5,000. And, burning of rubbish causes significant amounts of air pollution. Burning rubbish can also cause long-term health issues and heart problems.

To ensure proper rubbish removal in Brisbane South, always make sure to hire a reputed service provider such as us at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. We only engage in proper rubbish removal and can help ensure that your rubbish is disposed of properly and legally.

2. Mix different types of waste

Mixing up different types of waste is yet another common mistake with waste removal in Brisbane. For instance, many rubbish removalists mix recyclable waste with non-recyclable waste to save time. This is a big mistake because once recyclables end up with non-recyclables, everything will end up being dumped in a landfill. This then leads to a loss of valuable materials and is also harmful to the environment.

4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins do everything we can to prevent waste from ending up in landfills. We offer two separate types of skip bins, namely junk skips for general waste and green skips for garden waste. When we collect waste from our skip bins, we send recyclables to a composting facility and ensure that little of your waste reaches landfills.

3. Transport overfilled skip bins

Finally, another common mistake that some rubbish removalists in Brisbane make is transporting overfilled skip bins. Customers will try to maximise the amount of rubbish they dump into skips, and as a result, many end up overfilling them.

Service providers should never accept overfilled skips. Transporting overfilled skip bins is unsafe, and because of this, there are certain restrictions on the transportation of overfilled skips in Brisbane. If you hire a skip bin for rubbish removal in Brisbane South, make sure to confine your waste well within the walls of the skip.


There are certain mistakes that great rubbish removalists, such as 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, avoid at all costs. These include illegal dumping of waste, mixing up different types of waste and transporting overfilled skip bins.
