Rubbish Removal Brisbane: We set out to cover in this short article a solid overview of how Brisbane, Queensland based businesses can set about obtaining low cost and reliable waste management and recycling services whilst not being locked in to a long term contract that may not best suit their business needs.



We previously produced an introductory  blog posting on waste management Brisbane and waste management Gold Coast here that gives you an overview of the waste industry and what you need to know.


We also reviewed the Queensland Governments guide to organising waste and recycling contracts.


Rubbish Removal Brisbane – what you should know before arranging services


As a Brisbane based commercial business or organisation such as a hospital, school etc, you will be required by legislation to organise your own private refuse collection service.


Some areas may be able to get services provided by your local council. However, these council based services are not as commonly available as they were in previous years and if they still remain, they usually only service smaller bin sizes such as 120 and 240 litre bins.


You can check out images of all our bin sizes here and also see an article we recently published on choosing the right wheelie bin sizes for your specific needs and requirements. This will certainly not match all business needs.


Whether it is for short term clean ups, or ongoing rubbish collection – Waster can help you. Let us take care of the dirty business of Brisbane rubbish removal services.


Rubbish Removal Brisbane – prices are lower than other Australian cities


There is currently no State Government mandated levy imposed on the disposal of waste at landfill. This makes a major difference to the economics of waste collection, disposal and recycling with the financial incentives for businesses to recycle greatly diminished.


You can check up to date links to the relevant EPA pages through our waste resources page. You will also find useful links to resources such as a waste management plan, free garbage bin stickers templates etc here.


Even though pricing in Queensland tends to be lower for Rubbish removal Brisbane, you still should put in a little bit of effort to obtain low cost and reliable servicing.


The effort you put in will be more than compensated with lower costs and higher recycling levels. Reliability of service and increased business flexibility will also be extremely valuable to you.


It is also good to remember that your local council will operate sites where you can easily and cheaply dispose of one off waste needs. For households – their is also a regular hard rubbish collection service available.


This is an easy way to dispose of household rubbish, or excess items from deceased estates, white goods etc.


Do I need a long term contract for my waste collection in Brisbane?
We wrote a detailed article on this subject and the answer to be short and sweet is certainly not for rubbish removal Brisbane or for ancillary services such as document destruction Brisbane. You can find the article here : Waste management Melbourne. The key things to take from this article are the following:


A. You do not need to sign a long term contract as the benefits to you will be limited. You can easily book equivalent rubbish removal Brisbane services for your general waste bins and recycling on flexible month to month agreements through Waster


B. Be careful of the small print: be aware if there are clauses in the contract that you do not like such as roll-over clauses – whereby the contract will be extended if you do not notify the provider in time.


C. Understand how your prices will change: you will likely agree the contract at a certain price – but that price will certainly change over time. Be aware how and when the prices will change and what you can do about it.

We all know that when your business bins do not collected on time or for for a few days in a row – things can get pretty stressful, particularly if the bins are smelling and you are in the heat of the Australian summer! Of course in a hot and humid city such as Brisbane (or anywhere in Queensland – this is usually the case).


Apparently, bin collection staff are facing the brunt of more and more irate customers in recent years -both internationally and in Australia.


In today’s blog we will draw attention to a growing cycle of attacks and abuse of Brisbane rubbish removal service staff. We completely understand that having your commercial rubbish removal service Brisbane missed is never fun – but spare a thought for the hard working waste truck driver and Brisbane rubbish removal service driver!

Brisbane rubbish removal service – do you get stressed out?

This recent article from the Daily Mail in the UK details how garbage collectors / bin men are increasingly finding themselves at the receiving end of verbal and physical abuse. We quote from the article below”

“Binmen are being physically abused in record numbers by homeowners infuriated with complex recycling rules and restrictive rubbish quotas.”  


Brisbane rubbish removal service


“Councils have recorded hundreds of assaults over the past year in which refuse collectors were punched and spat on.”


“And while some attacks have been childish, others have reached frightening levels of violence involving guns and Samurai swords.”


“Statistics obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the number of incidents has nearly doubled over the past three years from 159 in 2013 to 309 in 2016.”


“Flashpoints include binmen refusing to take rubbish because recycling was contaminated, because there were too many bags or because bins contained too many wrong items. Binmen have also been attacked by motorists annoyed at being stuck behind the truck.”


“The figures come after it emerged this week that Britain’s first Big Brother bin police would be deployed to monitor rubbish and ensure residents are recycling properly. Stoke-on-Trent City Council said a team of six ‘waste minimisation’ officers will travel with lorries to rummage through wheelie bins.”


Some examples of bad and threatening behaviour (which of course could happen in commercial rubbish removal Brisbane also) are listed in the article include;


 – “A crew in Nottinghamshire were pelted with rubbish by a man chasing them down the road while shouting and swearing. They had refused to take his recycling bin because it had too many wrong items.”


 – “A resident in Dudley, West Midlands, was arrested after he head-butted a binman who refused to take any rubbish over the allotted quota.”


 – “In Crawley, West Sussex, a homeowner was recorded shouting racial abuse at a binman who would not empty a recycling container because it was contaminated.”


A number of these incidents seem to be based on (irrational people as abuse can not be justified) but also lack of understanding of recycling aims and bin frequencies (Brisbane rubbish removal service).
