Why Do You Need a Solid Waste Collection System?

A rubbish dumpsite, also called a front, rubbish dump, rubbish dumpsite, rubbish tip, a rubbish dump or secondary landfill site, is a location for the storage of municipal waste material. The dump location is selected based on land availability, easiness of access, road access, and other local requirements. The landfill has been the most common and long-established form of rubbish disposal. Still, the first systematic burial of this waste with final and intermediate covers only started in the 1940s.

To be classified as a rubbish dump Adelaide or a landfill, one needs to have an underground facility where the waste is dumped, and the remains are transported to final locations. Based upon their initial use, the landfills have many different types, including peat moss composting (also known as vermicompost), rock chip, clay, fired clay, and decomposed stone. The first fill materials were usually straw, twigs, branches, straw bales and even leaves. As time progressed, these were changed to more acceptable substances such as peat moss, newspaper, cardboard, paper bags, pine needles, grass clippings, alfalfa stalks, vetch, corn stalks, hay and straw. These waste disposal systems gradually became more efficient and of greater quantity. This increased the volume and increased the rate at which waste was deposited.


The disposal methods for household waste, including household rubbish and industrial waste, changed over the years. In earlier times, rubbish dump sites were located in parks, near residential areas, or in factories. As a result, the location of the rubbish dump site had to be constantly altered. This meant that the location would become overcrowded, leading to overflowing and, in some cases overflowing of the landfill, and the site would consequently close.

There are two primary diversion methods for household waste materials, before the arrival of the modern-day rubbish dump and before they are dumped in a landfill. The first method involves the filling of a deep hole with the waste materials of a large household.

The hole is then left to fill with rubbish. After some time, the hole is filled and left to fill with more rubbish until it is empty. This method works fine when a neighbourhood holds a weekly garbage removal service and has the benefit of allowing neighbours to share the burden. It also allows neighbouring residents to see what goes down the hole, and if they have any waste disposal needs, they can inform their neighbour, who then organizes the collection.

Another way that waste is deposited into a landfill is using “fly-tipping”. As the name suggests, fly-tipping is when a small plane, usually a biplane, flies over an area and dumps small quantities of rubbish into the ground. Often, this occurs when animal droppings fall from the sky onto the earth. This method of illegal dumping has also been known to take place on golf courses and at public beaches. The problem with this method is that most people who fly-tipped their rubbish find it difficult to return because the plane that dropped the rubbish is gone.
