At present, the best solution the council offers is by providing colored bins to homeowners to properly segregate their waste – green bin for the compostable waste, yellow bin for the recyclable waste and red bin for the residuals. Schedules of waste pickup depend on the region but the standard day for pickup for the green waste is once a week while every other week for the yellow and red bins.

Problems with Junk Removal

On the other hand, the council’s mandate for waste removal is to only take what’s in the bins. So if you have some excess waste that your bins could not contain and put it in a bag and leave it near your bin, don’t expect this will be taken up. This is one of the problems that many homeowners and commercial establishments have to face.

Another existing problem is with junk removal particularly the disposal of large single items that we usually dispose of from our homes and offices. Common examples are furniture, whiteware, and old mattresses. So how does the disposal of old furniture happen? How about whiteware disposal and mattress disposal?  These we are going to provide solutions and also give you tips on how to dispose of a lot of your waste that your bins cannot contain.

Disposal of General Waste

Let us tell you how general waste is getting on with rubbish removal in Christchurch. General waste is, in New Zealand, what they call the red bin waste which means these are the types of waste that are mixed up so most of it could land in the landfills. You can find in there recyclable waste, non-recyclable waste, and even plant and food residues. And because mixed waste is not part of the collection category of the council’s waste management system, this waste is often left out so people would prefer to dispose of them by other means.

Why some people produce general waste even though they have colored bins to segregate their waste is because they could have activities that made them produce a lot of waste of all kinds. For example, a homeowner decided to renovate his home and so has gathered a lot of junk which can include bricks, wood, plastics, and other construction materials. 

Other common examples of how general waste is produced are the construction of buildings, landscaping and big family celebrations. So from the building of homes to beautifying it to celebrating occasions inside the homes, all these can produce a lot of waste.

Mixed Waste Disposal - How We Deal With It

General waste can be disposed of in two ways. First, you can take your rubbish to the transfer station and second is hiring a professional junk removal service to do the disposal for you. For the first option, there is a bit of the process. You take your rubbish to the transfer station and your vehicle will be weighed with the junk and after disposing of the junk, your vehicle will be weighed again to get the total weight of your rubbish. Or, the size of your vehicle will be the basis for computing the charge for your waste.

At the transfer station, people will segregate the recyclable waste from other waste and the rest will end up in the landfill. Junked tools and appliances that are still good will be brought to the eco drop shop and will be sold. Hazardous waste with recyclable parts such as batteries will also be collected for recycling.


So being part of rubbish removal in Christchurch, so far we are doing what the council’s waste management cannot do and we’re doing it well for the past 10 years. And now we began venturing on single item pickup to help people dispose of their large items so they don’t have to get troubled to take them to transfer stations or dump them illegally which we want to prevent.

Best Ways for Whiteware Disposal in Christchurch

Whiteware in New Zealand is any home appliance that we commonly use in the kitchen, laundry, or dining room. These consist of fridges, dryers, washing machines, stoves, dishwashers, and many more. In recent years, there has been a surge in the whiteware disposal in Christchurch because of the introduction of the new hybrid whiteware with digital features. This prompted most home owners to replace their old whiteware with new ones. 

So if your whiteware is still good or already old or damaged and wants to dispose of it, then better check these disposal tips. 


Sell them online if these are still working fine like on buy-and-sell sites. 

Find a buy-and-sell group on Facebook, join and post your items if these are all still working fine.


Donate them to charitable institutions like The Salvation Army, home for the elderly, or NGOs. Some public hospitals also accept used whiteware to support their services.


Sell the damaged and old whiteware to junk shops. 


Take your old whiteware to the Christchurch city council transfer station and pay for the dumping fee. 

Contact us and we’ll pick up the items from your home.

What You Can Do For Old Mattress Disposal

Unlike furniture and whiteware, old mattress disposal can have issues. Mattresses don’t last many years and most of them can only last for an average of 10 years like the box spring mattresses. And sometimes when the time for replacement comes, your mattress can become uncomfortable to sleep on. Yet, some mattresses are made with latex or memory foam and can still be used even if they have lasted many years. But generally, the problem with mattresses is that when they show the signs of wear and tear, you need to replace and dispose of them. 

So here are some ways for old mattress disposal which can be part of your rubbish removal in Christchurch: 

Call the transfer station office and inquire about the possibility of disposing of your old mattress. If they agree, take it  to  the station and pay for the dump. 

Break it down. If you can’t take the mattress to the transfer station or don’t want to  pay for the dumping fee, you can dismantle it, take its wood, polyurethane foam, and steel spring. You can take the wood to an eco drop shop  free of charge and ask if they also accept foam then sell the steel spring to a junk shop. 

 If your mattress is still in good shape, find a charitable institution near you that accepts donations of used goods.  

Call us for the job. We know what to do with it and we’ll take it to where it belongs legally.
