Conventional Rubbish Removal Trends That Are Still Used Today

Our world is currently grappling a plethora of environmental problems and among them are the increasing waste and poor rubbish disposal. With Sydney’s booming population and development projects, the rubbish removal industry is doing everything it can to optimise keep waste management.

To secure the upper hand over the rubbish situation, many removalists utilise conventional and modern rubbish removal trends that show promising results. These methods aim to minimise waste levels and provide alternative and safe disposal routes to divert waste from landfills. 

That said, here are some of conventional rubbish removal trends used today that you might have missed:

Increased Legal Action

The NSW EPA keeps a keen eye on waste disposal, management, and recycling. With this, there is a growth of legislation and design of policies in local councils aiming to curb the pollution and waste levels.

Furthermore, most cities are also designing a “Zero Waste” system to have a long-term impact on waste disposal and management for years to come. 

Rubbish Sorting

During the dawn of landfilling, people would just throw away all sorts of rubbish in the exact form they were generated. That includes the dumping of toxic chemicals and compounds found in household rubbish and cleaning solutions. 

As a result, the environment and humans are exposed to disastrous pollutants and health risks caused by leachates, emissions, and just by being near landfills.

Nowadays, the advent of the internet and innovation gave birth to techniques that completely changed the face of rubbish removal, and among these is waste segregation. Classifying rubbish materials based on safety levels allows removalists to properly and safely dispose of waste. Besides, modern recycling equipment makes the sorting process significantly fast and efficient, saving a lot of time, energy, and manpower.


Many households in Sydney have a patch of green space or a humble vegetable garden. And since many families include planting as a part of their lifestyle, this sparked the idea of composting. 

With an active compost located adjacent to the house, you could just throw excess food and organic waste in it and let nature transform it into your garden’s fertiliser. This process completes the circle of organic waste and recycles it as nutrients for flourishing plants.

Population Control

Pollution is positively related to population. With Sydney getting more and more populated, there is a need for bigger waste control measures. That’s why professional rubbish removal services like Paul’s are working hand-in-hand with the local council to remove and recycle all of Sydney’s waste.

Plastic Ban and Use of Alternatives

Everybody knows that plastics and polythene take more than a lifetime to decompose. While they are considered to be the miracle product for most industries, their effect on pollution and climate change is undeniably severe.

In response to this dilemma, regulations and policies are being written to ban production and importation of plastics. To bridge this gap, researches and innovations are pointed towards sustainable alternatives like paper bags and bioplastics.

Decentralised Rubbish Removal Methods

The entire city is simply too much for collection trucks and municipal skip bins. That’s why homeowners and private ventures are getting involved in the network that carries out waste management techniques collaboratively.

A practical example is the combined efforts for household composting, recycling and sorting facilities, and rubbish removalists as logistics that efficiently transport waste to their final place. 


By far, converting waste materials to usable energy is the gem of waste management. With the rising prices of oil and its negative environmental impacts, many are choosing the cheaper alternatives.

Moreover, engineers are developing new ways to safely transform organic waste into energy. Hence, reliable processes such as controlled incineration, gasification, and anaerobic digestion are widely used by various facilities to supply some of Sydney’s power.

Besides, the said methods are designed to trap methane from decomposing waste and harness it into renewable energy. It is also important to note that methane is a highly potent greenhouse gas, that’s why these processes convert it before it escapes into the atmosphere.

Going Paperless

Computers and software systems are taking over organisers and all the paperwork. With a redefined perspective on paper use and production, the rubbish removal industry caught up by going paperless. Many routes and scheduled appointments are also facilitated through computers and cloud services so their staff can access valuable information on-the-go.


Conventional rubbish removal methods aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Besides, many trends and developments are rooted in these traditional practices such as recycling, sorting, and other waste disposal techniques.

There’s a lot to look forward about rubbish removal in the coming years, and Paul’s Rubbish Removal is playing an active role in it. With over a decade in this industry, our team have developed a bespoke methodology for professional and prompt waste disposal services all across Sydney.
