4 laws of Junk Removal

4 laws of Junk Removal

Junk removal in Brisbane is a touchy subject for anyone in the rubbish removal industry. According to the ABS, Australians dispose of more than 43 million tonnes of waste annually. That is an enormous amount of waste! These large quantities of waste can harm the environment if disposed of improperly. As a Brisbane resident, I urge you to abide by the laws of junk removal.

If you produce a lot of junk, whether it be household or commercial junk, how you dispose of it can have dire effects on the environment. While dumping junk is often the easy way out for many, certain laws much be followed.

Since I specialise in Junk removal in Brisbane, let me warn you; if you are caught dumping junk, you will face hefty fines.

Continue reading this article and learn the four laws of junk so you can dispose of your junk correctly (and legally).

1. Junk should be disposed of at a proper collection site

You should always make take your junk to a proper recovery centre. There are several recovery centres in Brisbane which allow you to dispose of your junk conveniently and legally. This is the number one rule for junk removal in Brisbane.

Alternatively, you can contact 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, who specialise in junk removal in Brisbane. We’ll deliver a junk skip bin to your location, so you simply need to fill it with your unwanted junk. Once you’re done, we will remove it and take it to the closet recovery centre.

2. Sort your rubbish carefully

If you choose to take your junk to a collection site, it must be sorted and separated first. Separate burnable and non-burnable junk. Also, make sure to separate recyclable items from non-recyclable items. This is another important law regarding junk removal in Brisbane.

If you choose to hire a junk skip bin from 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, you’ll also need to sort your rubbish. We accept all types of household and general waste in our junk skip bins. This includes home appliances, electronic waste, furniture and other types of commercial waste. You can also dispose of a mixture of general waste and green waste in our junk skip bins. However, our junk skip bins do not accept concrete, soil, timber, bricks, tiles and other heavy materials.

3. Dispose of your junk on designated disposal days

For proper junk removal in Brisbane, I suggest you dispose of smaller amounts of junk through the council’s rubbish collection service. There are designated disposal days; you’ll need to check your local rubbish collection calendar for the dates. You can obtain these calendars from community collaboration centres, the city hall and local ward offices.

If you have larger junk items to dispose of, this won’t be a valid option. Rather, a better solution is to contact 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, and we will deliver a junk skip bin to your Brisbane location. You can simply schedule a delivery and collection day upon hiring your skip.

4. Dump your rubbish before 8:30am

If you choose to remove your junk with the council’s rubbish collection service, it is a good idea to put your bin out before 8:30 am on the designated day and not after. This will ensure you do not miss your bin collection, which would result in a pile-up of junk; it will also leave you with no choice but to source alternative Junk removal services in Brisbane.

This rule also applies should you hire our junk bin service. Ensure you’ve removed all your junk and placed it in the skip before your designated collection day.


It is important that you abide by the laws of junk removal in Brisbane; otherwise, you’ll be liable to pay hefty fines. Your junk should always be disposed of at a proper recovery centre. You’ll need to dispose of your junk before 8:30 am, only on designated disposal days. Also, you’ll need to sort and separate your rubbish carefully before disposal.
