What Are The Impacts Of Improper Rubbish Removal?

Jun 22, 2023 | Blog, Rubbish Removal

When the rubbish piles up, there is a right way and a wrong way to get rid of it. While many Australians do the right thing when it comes to their rubbish removal, the impacts of improper rubbish removal are real and can have big consequences for both your home, your health and the environment. Let’s take a look at the major ways that improper rubbish removal can affect your life.

A Messy House or Business

The most obvious consequence of improper waste removal is a cluttered and unclean home or business. Whether it’s general waste in the kitchen, old appliances piling up in the garage or green waste collecting in the backyard, poor rubbish management degrades the physical appearance of your property and can even make it an unsafe place to reside in. Keep the inside and outside of your home or business looking attractive and spotlessly clean by disposing of rubbish regularly and correctly.

Pest Infestation

When the rubbish starts piling up, it’s not uncommon for the pests to move in. Food scraps and other items that can deteriorate attract pests such as cockroaches and rodents who are looking for a feed. Dumping garbage bags outside or on the curb will also attract pests and create unsanitary conditions in the neighbourhood. If you have an infestation, pest control will be required which can be costly.

Health Issues

Improper rubbish management can negatively affect your health and everyone else’s health in the household. From air pollution to water pollution to diseases brought in by pests, leaving rubbish in and around the home is highly unsanitary and unsafe. Rubbish like leftover food and chemicals that are left to decay can cause a wide range of health issues, including infections and chronic respiratory problems.

Potential Fines

Sometimes, the rubbish that you improperly dispose of can result in a hefty fine. Dumping your waste in an illegal area can go against local council regulations and end up costing you more than you think. Do the right thing and avoid making an expensive mistake.

Environmental Damage

Improper waste management also has a negative effect on the environment. Toxic chemicals can pollute waterways and the soil while burning your plastics creates air pollution that erodes the ozone layer and contributes to health issues for everyone. By hiring a rubbish removal service, your junk can be responsibly recycled or donated to reduce landfill waste and help build a greener future for all.
