The backyard is the pride of many a homeowner in Melbourne. If you’re like most of our customers, you spend a lot of time on making it look nice for you and your family. You’ve probably spent more than a few weekends on mowing the lawn, pruning shrubs, hedges, and trees, trimming flowers and other plants… all in an effort to make it look more appealing.

And the work pays off… but it leaves a lot of rubbish!
Sure, you can rake the leaves and lawn trimmings together to use for composting. You might even be able to fit the remaining organic waste into the green recycling bins for collection. 

We love recycling too!
But we also know that for more large-scale projects, such as a complete overhaul of your backyard, these solutions simply won’t cut it. These kinds of projects often produce rubbish that can’t be turned into compost or deposited into the green bins.

That’s where we come in.
When it comes to professional rubbish removal, Melbourne and the surrounding areas rely on Backyard Cleanup to help out with the disposal and recycling of backyard waste.

So where do you start?

First you give us a call and we organise a time to meet up. We then take the time to listen to the specifics of the job you have and talk you through the best approach. 

We will then provide you with a quote, if you are happy with the quote, we then go ahead and book in a time for the job to be started. 

We will always endeavour to provide you with a rough timeline for the work to be completed. If there are any delays, we will always provide you with updates along the way.

At Backyard Cleanup we take the stress out of doing that mundane task that you just can’t find the time to complete. 

So why get a skip bin? Why spend your weekends doing things you don’t love? 

We come to you with a truck and all the equipment we need to get the job done. We can also organise all other materials/equipment that may be required to complete the job. (I.e. earth-moving equipment, garden mulch, plants etc.)

When Is the Best Time for a Backyard Cleanup?

Melbourne may not be blessed with having a repuation for the world’s best weather. However, this doesnt mean you need to stop your project we’re happy to come and remove your rubbish all year around. 

But that doesn’t mean that every season is equally practical to remodel your backyard in. October, for example, is the wettest month of the year and things can get pretty messy.

Maybe you don’t have a choice. Work and other commitments might get in the way.

We get it.

That’s why the best time to book us in for rubbish removal is the day after you expect to be finished with the backyard work.

If you’re not sure how long the work will take, then give us a call and tell us a bit about your project — our experts will be able to help you estimate the duration of the project.

Is It Illegal to Dump Backyard Rubbish?

Yes! Most of the options people in Melbourne think of when they want to get rid of the rubbish from their backyard is, in fact, illegal.

You’re not allowed to dump your waste anywhere apart from your bins, recycling centres, and landfills.

Still, we see some people who dump their rubbish in places like…

  • Public or private property
  • Sewers and waterways
  • Parks and parking lots

That’s not on. Make sure you read up on the local laws in Victoria before you decide to dump any of the rubbish from your backyard in inappropriate places.

We Love Recycling!

Not only are we opposed to illegal dumping of rubbish, but we also take great pride in recycling as much of the rubbish that we collect as possible.

We believe that with the job we do, we also have a responsibility to the environment. So we do endeavor to recycle where we can.

Once our truck is loaded up with your unwanted items, it is taken to a transfer station where it is sorted and recycled to help reduce the impact on the environment. 

Timber is turned into wood chips. Garden waste is turned into mulch that your garden will love. All efforts are made so that anything that can be reused is!

At Backyard Cleanup we take a lot of pride in what we do and enjoy the fact that we make life a bit easier for our clients. 

Our no-hassle, up-front approach will hopefully leave you with a sense of great relief knowing that the job is being taken care of by professionals who care.

So please feel free to give us a call, send us an email or fill out the form below for a free quote and professional approach.

What About Your Lawn Mowers and Other Tools?

Your gardening tools won’t last forever if you put them to good use. At some point they will break down, and you’ll find a newer and better model at the local DIY store.

Or maybe you’ve decided that there simply isn’t enough time in your busy schedule for lawn mowing and hedge trimming, so you’ll leave it to the professionals.

Either way, your lawn mower and other tools are taking up valuable storage space. 

Or worse than that… the old rusty tools have become an eyesore. They may even be a potential safety hazard for your children.

Either way, they need to go. (The tools, not the children.)

But you can’t just throw out motorised tools in the garbage along with everything else. The residual oil and fuel can turn your bin into a fire hazard.

Besides, you’ll miss a great opportunity to go green and make some extra dosh.

Here are some ideas for how to get rid of your old tools:

  • Sell them online or at a flea market.
  • Donate them to a local charity.
  • Give them to a friend or a neighbour.
  • Sell them for scrap metal.

What About Hazardous Waste and
Construction Debris Removal?

Many everyday products, like batteries, electronics, paints, and cosmetics contain hazardous chemicals that can cause serious pollution. 

Sometimes you’ll find them in your backyard.

They could’ve been left there by the previous owners of your home and simply buried underneath layers of soil, pebbles, or plants. 

Now that you’ve decided to clean up the backyard, all of them magically resurface once more. That could also include debris, like treated wood, left over from previous construction projects.

The problem?

It’s often not legal to dispose of this kind of rubbish in the ways you normally would. Most junk haulers won’t be allowed to take it off of you either.

Your best bet is to find the nearest disposal centre in Melbourne and get rid of it that way.
