Rubbish Removal Hobart 🗑️ – What You Need To Know In 2023!
Rubbish removal Hobart 🗑️: admittedly, that headline is a bit over the top. But, it is a bit of fun, if nothing more. However, by asking some questions you can always greatly benefit your business by boosting recycling, cutting your waste management costs and getting much greater business flexibility. After all, Hobart and Tasmania are famed for the clean and pristine environment and the local council is putting in place significant projects to ensure this reputation is enhanced.
Rubbish removal services offered for Hobart businesses
In this section, we provide you with an overview of our rubbish removal services offered to small and medium businesses based in Hobart.
Cardboard and paper recycling
This is a very important service to avail if your business generates a tonne of paper and cardboard. But, you can still get this even if you do not produce a significant amount of cardboard and paper waste. With this, you not only reduce your costs but you also help sustain the environment, as well as cleaning up your work premises.
Depending on your waste generated, you can avail Waster’s 240-litre, 660-litre and 1,100-litre rear lift bin services (recommended for smaller businesses that produce a fair amount of cardboard and paper waster). Additionally, you can also avail Waster’s 1.5 cubic-metre, 3.0 cubic-metre and 4.5 cubic-metre front lift bin services. We here at Waster recommend purchasing these front lift bins if you have a medium-to-bigger business.
Commingled recycle service
Our rubbish removal and recycling services in Hobart also include the much-needed commingled recycling. In fact, you can put all your bottles, cans, and drink containers waste here! They will be sorted out once collected and given a new life, therefore sustaining the environment. These are the different sizes you can purchase, depending on your business’s generated waste:
- 240-litre commingled service
- 660-litre commingled service
- 1,100-litre commingled service
Confidential paper destruction
There are some papers or documents that your business needs to get rid of but cannot do so easily due to the information contained in them being sensitive data. In saying this, Waster offers Hobart businesses the best rubbish removal solution for this: confidential paper destruction.
Waster offers two standard confidential paper bin sizes, along with quality service:
- 240-litre confidential paper bin
- one-off service (120-litre) or the standard 240-litre
Anything that is considered non-recyclable and hazardous can often be put in the general waste bin. Along with the commingled recycling bin service, Hobart businesses also need this rubbish removal service to dispose of their trash properly. Like in Waster’s other waste management and recycling services, the bins come in different sizes (depending on how big the business is).
For the smaller, rear lift bins:
- 240-litre general waste bin service
- 660-litre general waste bin service
- 1,100-litre general waste bin service
For the bigger, front lift bins:
- 1.5 cubic metre general waste bin service
- 3.0 cubic metre general waste bin service
- 4.5 cubic metre general waste bin service
Grease trap liquid service
Restaurants or cafes must be careful and check their equipment and ensure that they maintain cleanliness and hygiene in their workplace. The grease trap, especially, can get dirty when neglected. But, some businesses simply do not have the means and time to clean their grease trap, which can lead to problems arising if left uncleaned. So, what businesses can do is avail a grease trap cleaning service. Waster offers that as well!
Medical waste service
Hospitals, laboratories, and other healthcare facilities produce contaminated, biomedical waste, as well as harmful chemicals that can compromise the health and safety of humans, plants, animals, and the environment as a whole. As a result, proper waste management is especially required in the healthcare sector due to the reasons stated above. Waster also offers medical bin services for health businesses based in Hobart that need rubbish removal in their facilities.
Waster offers the bin service in two standard sizes:
- 120-litre medical bin service
- 240-litre medical bin service
Organic waste service
Some businesses resort to putting food waste in the general waste bin, which Waster does not recommend. This is because general waste bins are charged based on the weight of the bin upon the pickup schedule. So, if your bin is heavy, you will be charged more. The best thing to do here for Hobart businesses seeking rubbish removal services is to purchase an organic waste bin to “recycle” your food waste. In other words, your food waste will be turned into compost or energy to prevent it from going into a landfill.
Waster offers one standard bin size service for organic waste: 120-litre organic waste bin service.

Questions you should not be afraid to ask about rubbish removal in Hobart
As the old saying goes, by simply asking questions, you can find out an awful lot. Questions we suggest you should ask yourself and your current waste services provider include the following:
1. Can I boost my recycling?
Boosting recycling is generally reasonable easy to do. Obviously, the more you currently recycle, the more effort you will need to put in to improve performance. By implementing a simple waste management plan, you should be easily able to significantly boost your recycling performance and probably reduce your costs. Look at cardboard and paper recycling and commingled recycling as first steps.
2. Do I really need to sign a 3-year contract to arrange bin service/s?
Many waste management companies still try to tie customers to long term contracts – with expensive exit clauses that make it hard for your business to change waste suppliers. Waster follows a totally different business model, we offer flexible 30-day agreements. So, you do not need to be worried about lock-in waste contracts and can adjust your services as your business grows.
3. Why am I receiving rate increase letters every six months?
When you sign a long term waste contract, it will likely include a price increase mechanism that lets the waste company increase your prices at set intervals (or sometimes whenever they want). When you have signed a lock-in contract, this can create problems for you. See our blog here on waste services uprate letters. Check out our blog on grease trap cleaning Melbourne.
