With urbanisation and population growth comes an ever-increasing variety of waste streams, as well as the challenges associated with their treatment and disposal. Despite the fact that each community is unique, councils and local government authorities face some unique challenges when it comes to the optimal management of hard rubbish and waste. It is complex and difficult to manage waste in ways that best suit the social, economic, and environmental interests of communities and areas. To fulfil these evolving requirements, building unique solutions that speak to these requirements is necessary.

Solo Resource Recovery provides innovative council waste disposal, council hard rubbish removal, and council waste services that encourage recycling, decrease reliance on landfills, and protect the local environment.

From construction & demolition (C&D) waste, household, commercial, garden, or electronic waste, or any hard rubbish removal that is required for our communities, Solo can help with all challenges that Councils face with regards to council hard rubbish removal services.

Items accepted for council hard rubbish removal by Solo include but are not limited to the following:

  • Household furniture
  • Whitegoods
  • Scrap metals
  • Household appliances
  • Tools
  • Mattresses and bed frames
  • Electronics
  • Floor coverings

What happens to the hard rubbish?

Reusable items in good condition, like furniture and children’s bicycles, are taken to the refuse shop for resale. Electronic goods are collected and taken to e-waste recyclers, who extract and reuse the internal components. Excavators are used to sort heavy metal objects, cardboard, and nonferrous metals for recycling. The residual waste is shredded and magnetised to extract the ferrous metal. Because everything else is recycled and reused, just a small amount of residual hard waste ends up in a landfill with this recycling procedure.
