Accounts Officer

Removal of Medical Waste can be a daunting thought, what if we said it doesn’t need to be!

When it comes to medical waste often people expect organising a reliable medical or clinical waste collection service to be a difficult or extremely expensive service to organise. At Waste Options we can look after all your medical services through one easy service and ensure you can get on with running your business, whether it be a doctor’s surgery, dentists or hospital etc.

As Waste Options provides all major waste and recycling services through our simple online model- you can also consolidate your required services such as general waste bins, cardboard recycling, commingled recycling, sanitary bins & confidential paper disposal through one provider. All our services are delivered on flexible 30 day terms with no hidden costs.

Clinical/ medical bins- We offer scheduled medical / clinical waste collections in two convenient bin sizes to suit your needs – 120 litres and 240 litres:

As per the NSW EPA- medical or clinical waste is defined as:

The protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997; Schedule 1 Scheduled Activities- Clause 50 Other definitions, defines clinical waste as follows:

Clinical waste means any waste resulting from medical, nursing, dental, pharmaceutical, skin penetration or other related clinical activity, being waste that has the potential to cause injury, infection or offence, and includes waste containing any of the following:

  • Human tissue (other than hair, teeth and nails)

Sharps collections- we offer sharps collections, often at the same time as your medical waste bin- with the container inside the bin for simplicity.

DID YOU KNOW?

Accounts Officer

Waste Options can also help with the disposal of your grease trap!

There are some key points to know before you book! Before you book your grease trap service- it is good to understand the following concepts:

Restaurant grease trap: when you operate a business serving food such as a cafe, takeaway shop or restaurant you will likely be required to have a regulated grease trap on site.

Required schedule: the schedule you need to follow for grease trap cleaning will be set up and monitored by your local water authority. They will categorise your business based on business type, size of trap (in litres) to work out the required schedule. You will then be required to keep a record of the services performed. In Sydney- a barcode is scanned and the service performance is then recorded on the system automatically.

Barcode or trade waste agreement: In Sydney – each grease trap will have a barcode- this will be a white sticker/plaque attached to a wall or service near the trap. When you book a service it is best to have these details on hand.

Pricing: pricing per service is usually calculated on e per litre basis- i.e it will be a cost per litre X the number of litres in the trap. Many providers may have a minimum litre charge- i.e such as 1000 litres or higher.

Waste Options can also help with your disposal of grease traps as well as waste and recycle.

Call today 1300 44 79 22 or visit our website for an online quote. With flexible contracts and fair prices we can help with many options.

Office Waste Removal and How you can help?

Accounts Officer

Office Rubbish Removal Sydney

Many offices do not produce a great deal of waste, especially for smaller office spaces with less than 10 workers. In some instances, the council bin provision may be suitable for your needs. However, it is pretty simple to organize low cost and effective waste management and recycling services for your office – and achieve very high levels of recycling to help the environment. Staff in your office can help by separating waste and recyclables, hence helping to increase recycling percentages. The Source Separation Bins can be very helpful in separating each categories with easy to follow illustrated pictures and each staff member can do this. Make sure to look up Source Separation Systems website for their innovated products and bins. *Pictured above are The Source Separations Bins in action in our office*

Waste Options offer low cost and flexible waste, recycling and office rubbish removal Sydney services through flexible 30 day agreements. Check out our website for our options and services.

How you can boost recycling through office rubbish 

By putting in place a simple waste management plan, you can pretty easily achieve very high recycling rates for your business- this can help keep your staff engaged and also lead to a better work atmosphere.

We list from top to bottom – the easiest and cheapest recycling options to put in place to reduce any waste ending up in landfill.

Cardboard and Paper recycling- most offices produce lots of paper and some cardboard. The cheapest way (and most environmentally friendly way to get rid of it is to have cardboard bin collection. If some of your paperwork is confidential – you can organize a shredding bin.

Confidential shredding bin- ensures your private documents (or customer private details) are not simply thrown into the garbage for all eyes to see. The bin is kept and collected by security cleared driver from inside your office space. Waste Options can help with this too. Just another option for our clients, not to mention peace of mind.

Commingled recycling- if your office has items like drink cans, plastic bottle etc a commingle recycling bin (a yellow mixed recycling bin) could be a good move and will let you reduce any general waste going to landfill.

Organic food waste- if you produce reasonable amounts of food waste, there may be an organic food waste collection service in your area. Alternatively, if you have a garden you could think about having a composter.

Recycling boxes- it is good to know also that pretty much anything can be recycled using TerraCycle recycling boxes such as cigarettes, coffee pods, rubber gloves or hairnets. Pretty much anything.

Waste and how long does it take to decompose!

Accounts Officer

Ever wondered how long it takes for your rubbish to decompose?

Taking that Sunday afternoon drive to the local dump- we all know that dumping at the local landfill can be extremely expensive especially in Sydney metro area due to the landfill levy. At Waste Options we try to promote recycling to our customers for two main reasons, in Sydney- recycling can be significantly cheaper than dumping in general waste and secondly – of course it helps OUR environment.

Waste Options is a real change to the Sydney waste management sector – we provide low cost and reliable services to small and medium businesses. Waste Options take the worry out by offering our services are on flexible 30 day agreements, so you do not need to worry about roll over clauses or hidden charges again. Check out our options or get a quote online at our website.

So how long does it take waste to decompose?

As we all know that dumping at rubbish dump Sydney sites is not the best option. We thought it would be interesting to look at how long it takes various items to break down landfills. Take note that these decomposition will  vary depending on the conditions of the landfill.

Plastic waste:  ‘Normally, plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. But plastic bags we use in our everyday life take 10-1000 years to decompose, while plastic bottles can take 450 year or more’

Nappies/diapers: ‘disposable diapers take approximately 250-500 years to decompose in landfills’

Cans: ‘Aluminium cans take 80-200 years in landfills to get completely decomposed’

Glass: ‘if glass is thrown away in landfills, it takes million years to decompose. And according to some sources, it doesn’t decompose at all’

Paper: ‘it takes 2-6 weeks in landfills to get completely decomposed’

Food Waste: ‘Normally, an orange peel takes 6 months  but an apple core or a banana peel takes around one month to decompose’
