Rubbish removals Sydney – what would happen if the city did not have reliable services?


One of the most amazing things about Sydney – is its beautiful waterways and beaches – just imagine if they were polluted with rubbish and plastic debris.


That is exactly the problem experienced in the South Pacific Island – Henderson Island.


The problem is covered by a recent article on the BBC website.


The article discusses the impact of plastic pollution (caused by other countries – including Australia) dumping their waste and not processing it correctly – this has huge environmental impacts on un-populated islands such as Henderson Island.


The issue is so bad – the island is estimated to have c. 37.7m pieces of debris on its beaches.


“The island is near the centre of an ocean current, meaning it collects much rubbish from boats and South America.”  We have covered this issue in previous blogs  – i.e. the great Pacific rubbish area (see Recycling Facts Australia).


“The joint Australian and British study said the rubbish amounted to 671 items per square metre and a total of 17 tonnes.”


“A lot of the items on Henderson Island are what we wrongly refer to as disposable or single-use,” said Dr Jennifer Lavers from the University of Tasmania.”


“The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, described how remote islands act as a “sink” for the world’s rubbish.”


“In addition to fishing items, Henderson Island was strewn with everyday things including toothbrushes, cigarette lighters and razors.”


See other blogs we have published on the subject such as recycling bin (on how India is building roads from waste)  and what is waste management. Also see our blog on what can be recycled.




We have talked lots in recent blogs about how we need a comprehensive solution to plastic waste and also recycling in Australia.


China is not accepting Aussie recycling anymore and so we need to find smart ways of recycling in this country.


A thorough waste management plan on a national level and steps towards a true circular economy are vital.


Waste collection and storage of plastic waste is however a vital aspect, whether we recycle or not as plastic waste is causing havoc in our oceans and seas.


Waster can help you (whether home or business) and provide the waste removed service you require at a cost effective price.


See a video below on how a true circular economy would work. How far are we from this in Australia  in 2018?
