You may think otherwise, but the rubbish removal process is actually fairly difficult. Many don’t have the knowledge or the skills (or even the time) necessary to ensure the proper and safe removal of rubbish. This can result in people doing the wrong thing when it comes to rubbish removal, knowingly or unknowingly.

If you want to remove the rubbish yourself that is no problem! You should read below to ensure you are not making these 3 vital mistakes. Otherwise, the safer option is to hire a rubbish removal professional. These professionals have years of experience and they have the skills and tools necessary to remove the rubbish in a safe manner.

1. Leaving Rubbish on the Road

It is common to see people leaving their rubbish on the side of the road. Sometimes there is a community clean up and your council area will fund a small clean-up of local rubbish. But other than this you should never simply leave your rubbish on the side of the road. Sometimes people think they are doing others a favour by allowing them to take their old things (such as shoes, couches, chairs, etc.). However, most people won’t touch it because they don’t know where it has been and it may be damaged because it was exposed to the elements for too long.

2. Illegal Dumping

Some of the time people simply don’t know that what and where they are dumping their rubbish is illegal. Other times people dump rubbish knowing that it is illegal. Your junk must always be disposed of properly and illegal dumping should never be an option. If you get caught illegally dumping you will be fined (up to $5,000!). It is not worth the risk, especially now when professional rubbish removal companies are so cheap.

3. Burning Rubbish


This is a big no-no. However, it is a fairly common rubbish removal mistake that many people make. You should never burn rubbish! It causes significant levels of air pollution and in the long term can cause health problems like heart diseases. Burning rubbish once or twice doesn’t seem like such a big deal, but the effects of this are immediate and can result in lasting issues.


You must always dispose of your rubbish in the correct manner. If you do not think you have the ability to do this then you should call in the professionals. GoodBye Junk offers a fast and reliable service for commercial and individuals – we always dispose of the rubbish properly.
