Removal of Junk in Christchurch

Do Do Need Some Junk Removed ??


Removal of junk and rubbish in Christchurch is quite simple. As long as the junk fits into the bins and the rubbish is sorted into their proper bins, then you have no problem with the councils’ rubbish pickup trucks. But if you have to much rubbish or its too large to fit in your bin. Then you better call for the waste busters.

And we say the waste busters because these are the private companies or licensed groups like us who are into picking up junk and rubbish be it large or small. We also dispose of your waste just like the CCC trucks dispose of yours to the transfer stations as long as it’s not all biodegradable. By the way, did you know that you can take your recyclable and hazardous waste to an eco drop shop and leave it there for free?

The colored bins are part of NZ’s effective management of waste, particularly rubbish that comes from the households. So let’s take a quick tour of how these bins are used especially in Christchurch before we’ll be telling you how we can deal with your junk and rubbish.

In Christchurch, we have here 3 colored bins for our waste for every household. The smallest one is the green bin where only the organic but compostable waste should be dumped. The second largest is the red bin for the non-recyclables and this is where you need to put the residual waste or waste that should go to the landfills. The largest of the bins is the yellow bin which is designated to catch all the recyclables. And when we say recyclables, it means “cleaned recyclables” only – no mix-up of oily plastic containers, no bottles with gunk, no wet paper or anything that could render the contents of the bin contaminated.

Restrictions for the Removal of Junk From Home

At the transfer station, If its sorted again people manually pick up your junk and waste by separating the clean recyclables from the non-recyclables and dirty recyclables. With such tedious and dirty tasks, these people are not only open to possibly getting infected with deadly microorganisms that have been living in the waste but also with sharp and pointed solid objects that some people have included in their waste.

The same with the waste that you dumped into the yellow bins, if you have included a material that is dirty and should not be there, your bin can get tagged by the council’s waste checker and can be marked as a “hot bin” in the council’s database. This means the 3rd time you violate the segregation rules, your yellow bin can be confiscated even without your knowledge. That’s part of the learning process for proper waste management in the city.

Why are we telling you this? Because this is where people mostly need our service: their waste not getting picked up by the council’s truck, the bins were taken or you have to much waste and the bin cannot accommodate it all. Another thing that people wanted  is to pick up the large items that cant fit into the bins. Examples are old fridge’s, furniture, old beds and mattresses and so on.

Removal of junk from homes is our biggest role in the city which we do on a booking system. And what we call junk are things that are generally recyclables or can be reused. It can be your old stereo that you want to get rid or an old stove, a dilapidated old bed, blocks of woods, or a damaged washing machine. It can also be smaller things like iron for clothes, broken radios, electric fans or anything that have parts that can be recycled.  If the junk is deemed usable at the transfer station, this will be brought to an eco drop shop and will be sold as a second-hand or used item.

The components of this waste can include soiled packaging, empty liquid cartons, broken toys and plates, small plastic items, damaged clothing, soft plastics, fibrous plant residues, animal waste, diapers and many other rubbish that are considered residual waste.

Green waste

This is the waste that can be composted and turned into organic fertilizers as long as it does not contain toxic substances. Examples are all food scraps, paper towels, clean shredded paper, leftover meat, bones and shellfish, garden waste, and soft leaves. Since these waste can easily rot, the pickup schedule by the council’s truck is once a week and these waste go directly to the composting sites.

Removal of Junk - Hazardous waste

 These waste are considered to be harmful types not only for humans but also to animals and the environment. Being toxic, these should be collected safely, treated if necessary and disposed of according to what the law says. These waste can include liquid waste such as organic sludge, grease and oils, resins, inks, solvents, detergents, paints and dyes and other waste that should have a separate disposal system. 

Removal of Junk

Waste from clinics and hospitals, veterinary clinics are also included in this category as well as e-waste like parts of electronic devices that contain chemically-treated components that can negatively react to moisture or organic matter and produce toxic results. Removal of rubbish that includes any of these materials should not be put in any of the 3 bins. But as we have said, you can drop these types of waste to eco drop shops so these can be properly treated or if no eco drop shop in your area, better call the council’s waste management office for advice.
