Tip Near Me 📜🗑️: Did you know that Australia is the 6th largest country by area? But oddly enough, it is not included in the top 10 most populous countries in the world. What does this mean? Well, it means that we have a very low population density in our country.

 

In layman’s terms, that means we have a few amounts of people in the area. That also means we can utilise much of the land here to our advantage. And one establishment that would prove beneficial to build would be a waste transfer station – or tip. Let me discuss further details with you.

 

One of the most common questions is “are we open today?” or “can I dump stuff at your yard?”

 

At Waster, we actually do not operate facilities at all. We just arrange and perform waste and recycling collections. Sort of like a waste broker, but better, of course!

 

So, in this longer resource, we want to provide you with a listing of waste transfer stations or tips. We certainly recommend or suggest those on the list when you are looking for the key term tip near me on Google.

Where Are The Rubbish Tips Near Me?

Before you go on and type in the search engine “garbage tip near me”, you must first know what it is all about. As such, I will discuss with you waste transfer stations.

 

What Are Transfer Stations?

Basically, a waste transfer station is a facility wherein municipal solid waste is stored for a while before processing. The waste stored there either goes to a landfill, waste-to-energy facility, or a recycling facility, depending on the waste.

 

Activities involved at the transfer station involves the trucks unloading their collected waste, checking waste before being transported again and removal of unsuitable materials, compaction, and then loading them onto vehicle wherein they are sent to their final location, still depending on the waste.

 

Important Details To Note

Landfill – a place where waste is taken to be disposed of. One of the most common forms of waste disposal dating back to old times. Unlike the old times, though, waste is carefully treated here to avoid contamination and the likes. See our blog on landfills in Australia

 

Waste-To-Energy Facility – a place where after it goes through the waste transfer station; they take the waste and combust them, which then turns them into electricity. Also called trash-to-energy, municipal waste incineration,  energy recovery, or resource recovery plant. See our blog on waste incineration in Australia.

 

Recycling Facility – a place that receives, stores, and processes already-sorted general recyclable waste. These types of facilities turn recyclable waste into materials like paper, containers, or cardboard.

 

How Are Transfer Tips Near Me Beneficial?

Having transfer tips – or points – near you are will benefit your respective communities. That is because these provide your city with cost-effective waste transportation. Naturally, if you transfer waste in larger vehicles like trucks or trains, you automatically cut costs in terms of transportation. Other benefits of tips also include:

 

  • Less pollution generated
  • Makes it easier for citizens to drop off their waste
  • Lowers road traffic
  • Improves the safety of the transportation of waste
  • Gives an opportunity to check the rubbish first; it removes the possibility of toxic waste being transported and recovers all the recyclable materials

Further Details On The Operations Of Transfer Stations

Now, one question some of you might be asking:

 

“What are the processes of refuse tips near me?”

 

Day by day, a transfer station operation includes (as stated by thebalancesmallbusinessRick LeBlanc):

 

  • Arrivals and scale – the large vehicle – which carries the waste – goes to the scale house. In here, waste loads are weighed, and fees are determined if applicable. Take note that if a transfer station allows the public to also drop off solid waste, there may be a separate queue and scale for this purpose.

 

  • Tipping, processing, and reloading – The large vehicles then unload the trash at the main transfer building. Solid waste can either be dropped into the ground, into a pit or also onto another vehicle immediately. After that, the employees check the waste for any anomalies and deal with them. Compactors are also utilised in some transfer station points to compact waste in order for vehicles to load more waste.

 

  • Facility – The facility typically includes a scale location and an enclosed building where the weighing and transportation process take place. The property requires adequate space to facilitate the queuing of vehicles at the scale and the main building. Also, there should be space to accommodate the parking of outbound transfer trailers. The additional property will be required for staging unacceptable garbage. Some waste transfer stations provide space for the public to drop off green waste or other approved recyclables.

 

  • Basic equipment: Aside from scales, transfer stations typically use equipment such as front-end loaders, cranes, conveyors, walking floors, and compactors. See our blog on compaction of solid waste.

 

  • Staffing: Waste transfer stations require customer service and scale house operators, traffic controllers, equipment operators, maintenance mechanics, as well as other technical and management staff.

More “Tip Near Me” Info

We present to you more useful information on rubbish tips.

 

In this part of the blog, we will cover Aussie recycling guru Tim Silverwood.

 

Rubbish tips: How Some Ingenuity Can Reduce Our Waste Piles

To find a recycling hero who has made a real difference, we need to look no further than Australia’s own Tim Silverwood. As a keen surfer, Tim had a real appreciation of the ocean and protecting the environment. From his own website, he stated that:

 

“His personal decision to clean plastic from his favourite surfing beaches and inspire others to do the same has led him down an extraordinary path of scientific exploration, advocacy and activism.”

 

“Following years spent studying sustainability and working in the not for profit sector Tim co-founded the organisation, ‘Take 3 – A Clean Beach Initiative’ in 2009 that asks everyone to simply take 3 pieces of rubbish with them when they leave the beach, waterway or…anywhere.”

 

“Tim was announced as the NSW Government ‘Sustainability Champion’ at the 2014 Green Globe awards for his commitment to sustainability in the State. Tim  is co-founder of the Plastic Bag Free NSW campaign, a spokesperson for the Boomerang Alliance campaigning for better recycling and lends his skills to many projects around the world striving to reduce the impacts of waste on the environment.”

 

We really believe that people like Tim should be highlighted. He shows making an effort can make a real change!

 

Talking About Landfills

As you have read above, landfills are an important part of tips or transfer stations.

 

However, landfills have had a really bad reputation and image for a number of years.

 

The recent ABC expose of the waste management industry certainly did not paint them in a great light. Landfills are usually regarded as the worst option for waste (excluding, of course, illegal dumping!) and somewhere we should reduce rubbish truck visits.

 

In this part of the blog, we want to cover the latest innovations in electricity generation from landfills and ask could a  landfill one day be seen as a renewable energy power station for the city?

 

Could A Landfill Actually End Up Being Good For The Environment Which Can Power Our Homes?

Whilst a particular landfill would not find too many fans at the moment because it emits methane and other greenhouse gases, Waster thinks that we are looking at it in the wrong way.

 

Landfills, if managed correctly, could offer significant “renewable” energy and decrease the need for fossil fuels.

 

As we all know, landfills smell. The reason they small is why they also could be very useful for the environment.

Melbourne landfill green energy

When food and any other waste decomposes, it emits greenhouse gases such as methane.

 

If we are smart, we should increase the already existing users of this gas to create electricity. See our blog on green waste disposal.

 

How We Can Use Landfill Gas To Create Electricity

Now, for a bit of science:

 

“Landfill gas (LFG) is generated through the degradation of municipal solid waste (MSW) and other biodegradable waste, by microorganisms. Aerobic conditions, presence of oxygen, leads to predominately CO2 emissions. In anaerobic conditions, as is typical of landfills, methane and CO2 are produced in a ratio of 60:40. Methane (CH
4
) is the important component of landfill gas as it has a calorific value of 33.95 MJ/Nm^3 which gives rise to energy generation benefits.”

 

The process gets interesting if the landfill produces enough gas to warrant electricity production.

 

The added benefit is the gas that is captured is methane, which is viewed as up to 23 times more negative as a greenhouse gas than C02.

 

Where are we now in Australia?

 

Quoting from the excellent website, theconversation.com.au :

 

“Around 130 landfills in Australia are capturing methane and using it to generate electricity. Based on installed power generation capacity and the amount of waste received, Australia’s largest landfills use 20-30% of the potential methane in waste for electricity generation.”

 

“Ravenhall in Melbourne processes 1.4 million tonnes of waste per year and proposes to generate 8.8 megawatts (MW) of electricity by 2020. Roughly 461,000 tonnes of waste goes to Woodlawn in NSW, and in 2011 it generated 4MW of electrical power. Swanbank in Queensland receives 500,000 tonnes a year and generates 1.1MW.”

 

Learn That…

Some companies are branding their landfills as FuelCells and equivalent positives names. The Australian waste industry should keep all of these in mind.

 

Landfills can produce huge damage through methane and other gases. So, it really is a no brainer to capture that gas and use it for electricity generation when economical.

 

There are other possibilities for creating energy from waste such as in oxygen-free tanks. We will cover that in a future blog. Stay tuned for our next ones!

 

Adelaide Rubbish Dump

In our blogs, we like to promote good news relating to waste management and recycling. We would also like to make our customers and readers aware of new projects and initiatives that can help them reduce costs and boost recycling.

 

However, sometimes there can be negative developments. Knowing this information, we will cover how electrical and power bills are making recycling harder for recycling facilities.

 

Set Back For Local Recycling Business

It was disappointing to hear that a South Australia recycling business is shutting due primarily to large cost increases in its energy bill. The ABC covered the story here.

 

We quote from the article below:

 

“Plastics Granulating Services (PGS), based in Kilburn in Adelaide’s inner-north, said it had seen its monthly power bills increase from $80,000 to $180,000 over the past 18 months.”

 

“Managing director Stephen Scherer said the high cost of power had crippled his business of 38 years and plans for expansion and had led to his company being placed in liquidation.”

 

“PGS processed domestic, low-grade waste and turned it into plastic granules, to be converted back into other industrial products like irrigation piping and flower pots.”

 

The managing director of the business said it was the last of its type in SA and he expected this sort of process to move offshore to Asia.

 

“We process about 10,000 tonnes of plastic waste [and] that’s now currently turned off, so South Australia won’t be recycling 10,000 tonnes [of plastic],” he said.

 

“To scope 10,000 tonnes for you, 10,000 tonnes is 15 per cent of the Australian market [of low-grade recycled plastic] … so Australia has lost 15 per cent of its supply.”

 

This certainly is a disappointing story for all associated with waste collection and recycling in SA and highlights the need for more focus on our environmental strategy.

Quick Note

As energy prices and other costs for businesses continue to increase, it is more important than ever to keep your costs down. Business profitability can be a precarious thing. And, keeping a keen focus on your costs is vital for ongoing success.

 

With flexible agreements for waste services, you can easily take one step in the right direction. We look forward to talking to you about your waste and recycling needs.

Rubbish Tip In Perth

Western Australia is famous for a number of things, being one of the most isolated regions in the world. The place also has some of the greatest beaches and ocean in the world.

 

You may have read recently about the growing problem of ocean pollution by plastic and other rubbish when it is not correctly managed and disposed of in rubbish tips located in Perth facilities or recycled.

 

We will cover the new UN focus on addressing this growing problem.

 

Rubbish Tip Perth: What Happens If Plastic Rubbish Gets Into The Sea?

Our era has been referred to as the age of plastic – as plastic has been produced in such huge quantities since its invention – and for the fact, it takes almost forever to decompose.

 

The issue with plastic in our waterways and oceans is that it acts as a real danger for fish and sea life – by catching them in it and being swallowed. The UN and international organisations are thankfully taking a real interest in the problem.

 

According to treehugger.com: “The United Nations has declared war on plastic. In an unexpected announcement that emerged from the Economist World Ocean Summit in Bali last week, the UN officially launched its ‘Clean Seas’ campaign.

 

The goal is to eliminate major sources of pollution, including microplastics in cosmetics and single-use disposable plastics, by pressuring governments and individuals to rethink the way goods are packaged and their own shopping habits.”

 

The UN Head of Environment Erik Solheim stated: “It is past time that we tackle the plastic problem that blights our oceans. Plastic pollution is surfing onto Indonesian beaches, settling onto the ocean floor at the North Pole, and rising through the food chain onto our dinner tables.

 

We’ve stood by too long as the problem has gotten worse. It must stop”

 

We really welcome this development and will keep you updated. See our blogs on recycling Melbourne and waste collection Sydney.

 

Check out our blog on recycling bins divulging whether a clean environment should be a basic human right. Also, see our blog on Perth recycling.

 

We Can Conclude That…

Professional waste management is often seen as a given. But, you would be surprised at how often waste bin services can end up in the wrong place as exposed by the ABC War On Waste Tv show.

 

See our blog on how we can work to reduce trash by using reusable plastic bags.

 

Taking care of our environment is vital for future generations. And, getting good value bin services is vital for your business health.
