Professional Rubbish Removal vs Doing It Yourself

By April 19, 2017 Rubbish Removal

Cleaning is an essential part of everyone’s life. Whether it’s at home or in the workplace, we all clean everyday. Mostly the waste we produce can be easily managed with the weekly rubbish removal services provided by our local council. But in some circumstances, a little more effort may be needed.

Whether you’re doing a bit of spring cleaning, are moving into a new house, or you work in a workplace that produces a large amount of waste, you will likely be left with a big troublesome mess on your hands. So what’s next? You have two options – doing it yourself or using a professional rubbish removal service like Sydney Rubbish Services. Here’s a few reasons why you should opt for the latter!

There may come a time when you may be tossing up between a professional rubbish removal service and doing it yourself. Here’s why you should always opt for the former.


One of the factors that will impact your ability to remove of your waste thoroughly will be time. Cleaning can be a mammoth task, especially if you are moving houses or doing a huge springtime makeover and de-clutter. Alone this can take you days or even weeks, and by the end of it, you may have exhausted all the time on your hands for removal of your waste.

Getting in touch with a rubbish removal service is the most efficient approach. They can coordinate with your schedule so that your waste can be taken care of in a timely manner. That way you won’t be left with hard rubbish scattered on your lawn, or green waste piling up in your backyard, or old white goods sitting on your nature strip.


Rubbish removal can be tricky business. Much of the waste we deal with is quite dangerous, and attempting to remove it yourself can be unsafe. For example, lifting heavy items like washing machines or fridges, or even mattresses, can put quite a lot of strain on your back. Getting rid of green waste, such a branches and logs, is also tricky – don’t go using an axe if you don’t know what you’re doing!

This will probably be the biggest hinderance when it comes to taking care of waste yourself. Much of the waste produced by households will be too large to fit in the average car – think boxes, electronics, white goods, furniture, mattresses and other hard junk, and green waste. Without a large wagon, ute or van, it will be an ordeal getting this rubbish to your nearest rubbish dump.

Speaking of which, the rubbish dumps in Sydney are few and far between, will charge you to dump your rubbish and won’t take some of the waste you might be dumping (e-waste or paint tins for example).

Many rubbish removal services also offer light demolition services. Need to bring a bathroom back to its shell or demolish an old shed and get rid of the waste right away? Your rubbish removal service can help!

The Environment

It is very important to think of the environment when removing rubbish. Landfill is fast becoming overladen with junk, so thinking about recycling is crucial. Much of the waste produced by households can be recycled (green waste, e-waste, scrap metal) – the only issue is taking it to right places. There are recycling plants scattered all around Sydney and a rubbish removal service will be able to take your junk to the right places, no worries.
