Waste management is the whole process of dealing with rubbish once they have entered the waste stream. Proper waste management, in particular, involves the collection, transportation, reprocessing, disposal and treatment of rubbish in the most environment-friendly manner possible. That means you have to reduce the waste you generate at source, reuse, recycle, and compost rubbish accordingly. Only the other non-recyclable, non-organic municipal solid wastes should end up in incineration facilities or landfills to save space.
The Importance of Waste Management
Australians generate around 67 million tonnes of rubbish annually. A large part of that amount goes straight into landfills, including recyclable and compostable items. Plastic packaging, aluminium and steel, building wastes, and organic and food wastes end up in landfills, which should not be the case. Tonnes of rubbish, therefore, goes to waste when we don’t dispose of them properly.
Proper waste management has the goal of recognising rubbish as a valuable resource to reduce the amount of wastes that ends up in landfills. By reusing items like newspapers, old clothes, and furniture, you’re prolonging their product life and maximising their use. Likewise, when you recycle, you’re saving valuable resources like raw materials, energy, and money because reprocessing spends a lesser amount of these items.

How Can You Help Rubbish Removal Companies in the Waste Management Process?
The government is responsible for most of the waste management practices in the country such as the kerbside collection and funding for the establishment and operation of recycling centres in an area. However, they are not the only ones who should uphold proper waste management practices. Huge commercial and industrial enterprises should take charge of the large amounts of wastes they produce. Households and businesses also have a role to play in the management of wastes.
As much as possible, every individual should make the 3Rs a lifestyle. You should always reduce, reuse, recycle, and compost. By being a wise consumer and making informed purchases, you’re significantly reducing the amount of waste you generate. Try buying only the things you need and the food items you can consume before they expire. Opt for reusable items instead of single-use ones. If time does not permit you to recycle and compost, you have Kurt’s Rubbish Removal to call. While you handle the reduction of the waste you generate, we’ll deal with the composting, reprocessing, and landfilling of your rubbish.
