There are many tasks that simply cannot be finished without utilising a local Adelaide waste service. Below is an overview of the waste services we provide at the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre. This includes what rubbish can be dumped, how we can help dispose of your unwanted waste items and how the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre are helping improve the environment.
The AWRC is managed by Solo Resource Recovery, an independent Adelaide waste company who provide commercial waste services to businesses across Adelaide and the surrounding region. We are also open to the public for domestic waste disposal.
Waste is received into our waste transfer station via multiple single vehicle loads. It is sorted by our professional staff onsite into recyclable and non-recyclable waste. Bulk waste trucks then haul any non-recyclable waste to the nearest landfill.
Our waste transfer station helps to reduce the volume of waste going into Landfill. All Landfills combined across Australia produce around 20M tonnes of waste every year. At least 1000 landfills are located across the country.
Designated land fill locations in Australia are usually situated in very remote locations away from residential areas, due to the smell and noxious gases from decomposing waste.
Our local North Plympton waste facility and bulk haulage of waste to the remote landfill destinations increases the overall efficiency of waste disposal for residents, businesses, and councils.
Reducing the number of trips required to such remote locations has a positive impact on the environment. Carbon emissions are reduced through improved transportation efficiency and there is also a reduced overall volume of waste going to landfill in the first place. This is largely thanks our sorting processes.
Essentially a landfill is a very large hole in the ground. The final destination for non-recyclable waste. Waste is dumped and pushed into the hole with machinery after alternative recycling options have been exhausted.
The Waste is bulldozed and compressed as much as possible. Landfill Waste can take decades to break down, and can go on producing harmful gases for the entire duration. Anaerobic processes in the decomposition of waste in landfills generate emissions which can be harmful to the environment, hence the ongoing effort to minimise the volume of waste to landfill.
Conversely, the Adelaide Waste and Recycling Centre is an environmentally efficient operation which seeks to separate recyclable items from any waste destined to landfill. We effectively provide a full range of Adelaide waste services to both commercial and domestic customers, seven days a week.
Any recyclable materials are sorted into multiple waste streams such as glass, cardboard, paper, and plastics. Items such as electronics, oils and gas bottles are also processed into their own separate waste streams.
On arrival to the AWRC a gatehouse attendant will advise where to dump your waist depending on the type of material being disposed.
