Verge collection time is once a year every state. It is the time where local councils collect bulk waste to help residents keep suburbs neat by discouraging illegal dumping of unwanted bulky household goods.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. During this time in communities’ people can get unwanted property from other people. It is a good time to give to other people and at the same time clearing their homes. In every household in Australia there are about 20 gadgets in use and every year there is a release of new versions. These are not easily disposable during the time but during verge collection these gadgets can be passed on to other people. A couple of years ago I managed to score myself a computer and single bed mattress during this time and helped save a lot.
During verge collection, it is a perfect time to clean up your house and store room. Most people store unwanted things during the year in their store rooms and these are often congested so this is a great time to clear them. It also allows one to clear the environment of any clutter hence making it safe especially for people with young children.
It is often expensive to dispose of nay large property such as beds and cookers. So, verge collection time is a great opportunity to dispose such things. Large properties also cannot be disposed through the normal bins as there is a limit regarding the weight of the bin and they should not be filled to the top.
80 percent of the things collected is made of material that can be recycled or reused. Recycling will save the environment for future generations and will help reduce the amount of natural resources to be extracted as material can be used repeatedly.
Every council have different dates for collection and this can be found on the websites and people should be aware of this so they can be prepared and take out their waste within the correct time. Generally, people should take out their waste a week before and not earlier or later giving it time to be collected. Verge collection is cost effective as you do not need to pay anything for collection and disposal. The councils are responsible for this. The councils also dispose the waste is the best safest way for the environment.
