City of Perth | Commercial Waste and Recycling Services

All of us know the most important effect of recycling solid waste – it helps reduce soil, water and even soil pollution and then preserve the environment. However, often we don’t consider recycling waste, especially commercial waste, properly to save the environment. In most cases businesses trash their commercial waste in the landfills. What these businesses don’t realise is that their waster materials can adversely affect our environment.

Recycling is simple. It is the processing of converting old, used equipment, material or any object into new reusable products. This means that whenever you send an old, used item to recycle, it will have a reuse value.

Recycling helps by reprocessing used equipment into raw materials that can be used to create new products. This helps reduce the consumption of new raw materials. This process can also significantly reduce energy usage and air pollution. Since we are not dumping waste into landfills and bodies of water, the risk of potential water pollution from landfills is also reduced.

So if all business establishments will implement regular commercial waster recycling, especially those that are in the manufacturing industry, they can benefit the environment in great deal. In Perth, there is waste recycling legislation body to ensure that all manner of waste is dealt with in a compliant manner.

So if you have furniture, machineries or computer equipment such as laptops, computers, copiers, printers, etc that you no longer use, then you’ll need a commercial waste clearance and recycling service. Such electronic equipments contain harmful chemicals and a variety of toxic materials/pollutants. They contain lead, mercury, selenium, cadmium, arsenic, zinc, brominated flame retardants, and, in older equipment, polychlorinated by phenyls (PCBs). That is why it is extremely important that you contact an expert to work with.

The City of Perth provides such service for free. For more details, check this out: https://www.perth.wa.gov.au/business/i-have-business-city-perth/commercial-waste-and-recycling-services
