How to Dump Electrical Waste In Sydney

By November 21, 2020 Rubbish Removal

We all want to remove our waste in the most responsible way possible, and there’s no need to be a Sid the Sloth but this isn’t always as easy as it seems. While our weekly rubbish removal is easy enough to understand, getting rid of more unconventional items can be tricker.

E-waste and electrical appliances are a great example of this kind of rubbish. E-waste is a common term for electronic waste – computers, keyboards, mobile phones, televisions etc. It is estimated that more than 20 million of these items are sitting in homes and offices around Australia, completely unused, waiting to be thrown out.

This waste can be harmful to the environment if disposed of via the normal means and therefore needs to be removed responsibly. How so? Getting in touch with a rubbish removal service is a great place to start. Sydney Rubbish Services specialise in all types of electrical waste removal. Click here for a quote today.

Dump Electrical Waste

Getting rid of electrical waste can be tricky, especially without a ute or truck. Here we take a look at how to dump electrical waste in Sydney.


E-waste encompasses most electronics, such as:

• TVs
• Desktop computers, laptops and monitors
• Keyboards
• Scanners
• Printers and printer cartridges
• Fax machines
• Mobile phones
• DVD players
• Microwaves

When these items end up in landfill, these toxic substances are released and eventually end up in bodies of water, groundwater, soil, and air and can have absolutely devastating consequences for the local and global environment.

There are recycling schemes in place in Sydney to help curb the impact that e-waste can have on the environment. We have access to all e-waste recycling facilities in Sydney and work with them regularly disposing of e-waste from our loyal customers.

Fridges and Freezers

All councils have very strict rules about how and when your fridge should be disposed. Many require that you dispose of your fridge at a dedicated recycle facility, which can be very tricky to do without a ute or truck. Others require that it be removed only at particular times (often fortnightly or even monthly) – and even this depends on the size of your fridge.

Don’t stress over lugging your fridge, freezer or ancient ice chest to the curb, don’t wait weeks for the council to present their services, and don’t fret about hiring a vehicle to take your old fridge to one of the few recycling facilities in your local area – if there is one. We can take care of everything. Lenka.

Washer and Dryer removal

Air Conditioners

Depending on where you live in Sydney, your local city council will have different regulations regarding air conditioner disposal in your local area. Much like fridges, many councils require you to take your old appliance to a dedicated recycling facility. Others have strict guidelines for council pickups, if they offer it at all.

Heavy fines apply for dumping white goods. So skip the hassle and give Sydney Rubbish Services a call today. No matter how big your AC unit – window, ductless, portable, central – we can load it up and take it away to be recycled, no problem.

Washers and Dryers

Much like fridges or air conditioners, dryers and washing machines are bulky and difficult to get rid of, and it will require a few sets of hands and a good sturdy truck to get the job done.

Even if you do have a ute or van, recycling facilities can be difficult to access. Sydney Rubbish Services specialise in the inner city, Inner Westgreater North Shore and Eastern Suburbs – areas where recycling facilities are few and far between.

Don’t even think about lifting a finger for getting rid of electrical appliances in Sydney. Our fast and efficient team can take care of any job, no matter how big or small.
