Construction waste can lay waste to the environment if not taken care of properly. If not disposed of appropriately, it could even lead to health or workplace hazards.
Whether you’re doing a commercial/industrial or residential project, your junk can come back to bite you and the environment – or your front or back lawn – if you don’t dispose of it in a way that minimises environmental risk.
Here are a number of tips to keep yourself safe and tread lightly on the planet.
Certain materials like chemicals, batteries, paints and flammable items need extra care and special disposal. You can’t dump them into regular bins – you’ve got to dispose of them according to regulations. If you don’t know how to dispose of them, contact your local council for help.
This could help you avoid heavy fines and stay away from illegal dumping.
To give you an idea of what falls into the hazardous category, here’s a list of what can and can’t go into a Skip Bin.
This simple tip goes beyond separating hazardous from recyclable from general – it could save you time, money and trouble if you save reusable or sellable items.
Put reusable items like dry pieces of wood in separate containers or under cover so they don’t get damaged during your project.
If you’ve got a lot, consider hiring a few skip bins to help you sort the good, the bad and the ugly. This will save your good materials from damage, your bad materials from taking up workspace, and your ugly (hazardous) materials from contaminating anything else.
Instead of wasting money on buying only new items, why not reuse existing fittings and appliances? Paint old fittings or give them a scrubbing to give them a fresh look. Think about ways to rearrange existing items to make the best use of space. This will save you money on purchases, and reduce the amount of waste you generate.
Whether purchasing supplies for a commercial or home renovation, ask if the store will put your supplies in eco-friendly material.

Material costs and appliances are two of the biggest renovation expenses.
If you’re savvy and willing to shop, you can find great deals from warehouses that sell overstock from other suppliers, unused renovation materials from other projects and even salvage from other homes.
This ‘salvage’ isn’t cheap and dirty either – most of it is brand new, but simply was overstocked or not used in the original project it was meant for.
One such discount vendor in Perth is Ross’s Discount Home Centre.
They’ve got a large warehouse in Guildford that stocks, among other things:
There are other discount warehouses in South of the River suburbs like Fremantle, Canning Vale, and more – have a look for yourself and get saving!
Auctions are another great way to save on appliances and materials.
Held for any number of reasons (estate sale, house reposessed, items simply no longer needed, etc.), auctions sell all sorts of items and furniture to the highest bidder. If you know where to look, you can save a bundle!
Ross’s Auctioneers and Valuers is a good example here as well – they hold both live and online auctions for everything from flooring and appliances to furniture, wine and industrial equipment.
A well-known trick, but a good one! Next time you’re wandering the selection of ovens and washing machines in, say, Good Guys Armadale or Harvey Norman Cannington, ask a sales rep if they’ve got any floor models (sometimes called display models) for sale.
If they’re getting rid of old stock or just making room for new, they may sell you the refrigerator on display for a tidy savings.
PRO TIP: You can save $$$ getting rid of your old appliances too – find out how here.
Factory seconds are retail items which, through minor fault of manufacture, are sold to the public for a reduced rate rather than being discarded.
An appliance with a minor blemish, tiny ding, or old model can come your way for a big discount through vendors offering such factory seconds.
Various major retailers carry factory seconds or clearance items. For example, Fridge and Washer City offers seconds in their Joondalup, Morley, and O’Connor stores. For online, check out www.2ndsworld.com.au and similar vendors that specialise in this area.
Whatever you can do yourself… do yourself!
Avoid labour and installation costs, save on materials by making your own choices, and even learn a thing or two along the way.
The thing to remember here is not to overstretch yourself. Stay within your skill limits – a botched DIY job will cost you more than getting a professional in. Some areas you may want to avoid are bathroom (waterproofing), plumbing (obvious reasons) and electrical (even more obvious reasons).
Don’t get stuck paying for expensive junk removal once the dust has cleared. Don’t ruin your front lawn with a pile of heavy waste. And don’t waste time figuring out what to do with piles of renovation scrap or junk you’ve cleared out of your back room.

Over the past few years, many millions of people have taken steps to begin lowering their carbon emissions and the amount of waste they throw out. We recycle more, we switch to energy-saving light bulbs, and we put our leftover food into compost bins. All of these things are great first steps to take when it comes to looking after the environment. And although remembering to recycle yesterday’s newspaper instead of putting it in the regular bins seems insignificant, over time it can add up – especially if lots of people are doing it.
But some families have taken it further. One example is the family of Bea Johnson – the author of the book Zero Waste Home, which instructs families on how to live a Zero Waste life. Since 2009, Bea and her family have reduced their household waste to an astounding one-litre jar a year. For many families, they wouldn’t even be able to fit their waste for a single day into the same sized jar.
You might be wondering just how they do it – and how you can take your first steps to living in a Zero Waste Household, too. Just some of the ways Bea reduced her family’s waste are:
Just some of the things that Bea no longer finds she needs to purchase once she started getting creative include:
Overall, Bea and her family saved so much money that they were able to install solar panels on their roof, saving them even more money in energy bills.
Lauren Singer, who was inspired by Bea’s lifestyle, began living a Zero Waste Lifestyle, too. Over three years, she produced only enough rubbish to fit inside of a small mason jar. She credits her success to composting leftover food, buying food in bulk with no packaging, and buying second-hand clothes.
So, what can you do to begin on the path to a Zero Waste Home?
Buying your food in bulk and taking your own containers to bring them home in will reduce your waste significantly – as will shopping for your fresh fruit and veggies at a farmer’s market and getting your meat fresh from a butcher.
Cleaning supplies not only take up a lot of space in your cupboard, but any homeowner will know that opening the kitchen sink leads to a treasure trove of plastic bottles.
Many basic and effective cleaning supplies can be made at home using a small number of ingredients, such as bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar.
While not directly relating to your household waste, we all know that driving isn’t the most environmentally friendly of practices, especially if you’re doing it every day. Instead, try using public transport or car sharing to get to work, and if you know you have plenty of errands to run, try to fit them all in the same day. This will reduce your fuel consumption, leading to more money in your pocket and less congestion on the roads.
Plastic bags are nothing short of a menace to society, and the less you use them, the better. Take your own fabric or long-life bags to markets and shops, and say no to plastic bags. The environment will thank you for it.
By now, we’re all pretty aware of how important it is to recycle, but it pays to stay vigilant. Place your recycling bin in a prominent position in your home so that it’s easy for you and your family to recycle, and if you’re undergoing a big renovation, hire a skip bin from a company that ensures your waste will be properly and efficiently recycled.
If you haven’t quite managed to get your waste down to a mason jar, our skip bins are available in a range of sizes to suit your needs. Get in contact with Bonza Bins today to see how we can help you.
