Household Rubbish Removal in Christchurch What Can We Pickup ?

There are a number of ways people do household rubbish removal in Christchurch city. But before we talk about these ways, let’s identify first what are the things that people usually include in their rubbish for disposal. 

Most of the items we see during our daily  removal of household rubbish particularly in Christchurch city are regular waste and items found in a typical household. From the kitchen, we find biodegradable waste, rusty utensils and pots, and also old appliances such as oven toasters, stoves and microwaves.

From the bedroom room, we see old pillows, torn blankets, broken lampshades and the largest items are usually the old beds and mattresses and even cabinets. And from the lounge, what we usually get are the large items like rugs, old sofas, chairs and broken tables. As a private team doing rubbish pick up, we basically take all types of waste coming from households, businesses and even from construction companies. But when it comes to following rules, we emphasize to our clients that they should sort their regular waste from the large single items like furniture, cabinets, whiteware and all the large items mentioned above.

Guidelines For Rubbish Sorting

Being in the rubbish pickup business for over a decade, we are familiar with what people throw out from their homes, offices and buildings and we also get to know how things work within our council’s transfer stations which we also call our dumping facilities. We are also able to see how people in these stations sort the ordinary trash from whiteware as well as the hazardous, and biodegradable waste. But what is whiteware waste and why do we need to pick it up?

How To Dispose of a Dryer

Whiteware waste is any of the large home electrical appliances that are used in ordinary households but are being disposed of by the owners because they get too old or broken. Examples are washing machines, dishwashers, fridges, dryers, freezers, air conditioners and many more. They are called whiteware because these used to be available in white color but now come in a variety of colors though their whiteware category remains.

Since large items are not included in our city council’s rubbish pick up service, this is the reason why we put whiteware into our removal of household rubbish service as we see some of them getting dumped in places they should not be including other large items. We are concerned with the impact of this illicit practice in our environment and in our community, we want to show citizens  of Christchurch that there are better, legal and more effective ways of disposing of all large items and some of these options are cheap and even free.

Christchurch Rubbish Illegal Dumping

Not too many people in Christchurch city know this but if you take your whiteware item into a transfer station, you won’t even pay for it. If it’s still in good condition, people in the station will take this to an eco shop for sale to the public at a very cheap price. But if it’s junk already, this will be taken into the recycling center for scrap metal. This goes the same with other large items. If you’ll dispose of your old cabinet but still in the best shape this will also be taken to the eco shop. But if it’s dilapidated, this goes to the junk among the wood category. So only the whiteware items are exempted from the dumping fee. So does this mean people may not need our service anymore for the whiteware pick up? Not really.

How To Dispose of a Tumble Dryer

In the many years of our waste pickup work, we get calls every day from many individuals, business owners, managers and homeowners about picking up their single items of junk and also for their assorted or general waste. So why can’t they take it to the dump themselves? It’s because of many reasons:

Why Do People Need Our Household Rubbish Service?

Item is too heavy or too many to be hauled. If you are a homeowner and you want to move out a single freezer or an old bed with a large mattress but it weighs too much for you, would you force yourself to carry these to your truck? (if you have one) What if you want to take out all the old beds from your apartment so you can replace them? Would you be able to do all the lifting and hauling? Probably not. So it’s  more practical to hire a team of household rubbish removal specialist in Christchurch like us and avoid straining yourself.  Yes, we can take your single large item from where it sits or even a full truck load of them.
