Construction Work Rubbish Collection

After talking a lot about how to manage waste on this blog. We wanted to feature a construction company in Perth who recently had a massive cleanup at their work site. Why? Simply because we wanted to support those who are active in managing waste at home and the workplace. After all, by supporting one another we can make this world a lot better place to live in. You might be asking which construction company we are referring to. The company is run and operated by a Perth local and is currently trading as Acero Construction. For more information, you can visit their website: or call directly on (08) 6245 1250.

According to them, managing waste at any working site is a crucial part of project management. Not only it promotes an environmentally friendly workplace, but it sets a benchmark of other construction companies to follow suit. What better way to promote and raise awareness about the importance of waste management than to lead by example. Anyone can say it, but following up with action sends a lot stronger message.

Waste management at workplaces or on construction sites does not have to be a complex process. In fact, doing something about managing waste is a whole lot better than not doing anything at all. If you are absolutely clueless, there are many local government agencies that should be able to help and provide any sort of information you need; such as the rules and regulations when it comes to waste management.

When asked, the staff at Acero Construction are super proud to be working for a company that puts workers safety and waste management at the top of their priority. Many of them have actually worked for the company for many years and plans to stay for a long time to come. This is proof that by having a good safety work culture and actively promoting environmental initiative, employee retention should be maximised.

Managing Rubbish for Your Next Office Party

Office parties are a great time for colleagues to socialise and spend some quality time knowing each other. There is a lot of rubbish that usually comes from these parties due to poor planning of rubbish management. Rubbish includes food leftovers, decorations and packaging material. There are several things one can do to reduce the rubbish and dispose in a safe and time and cost efficient manner.

The first and important step of managing office party rubbish is to plan beforehand. One can use previous experience to estimate how much waste is going to be generated and calculate if their normal bins are going to accommodate these. One should also consider the type of waste which is going to be generated to determine how they are going to dispose or manage their waste.

A company can hire extra skip bins if they already have one or get some wheelie bins from skip bin companies. They offer a wide variety of bin sizes and types depending on the size and type of waste at hand. Skip bin companies deliver and collect these bins at a fee which is affordable and they dispose your waste on your behalf. They are flexible and easy to order online and can deliver within a short period. Decomposing some of the waste like vegetation is a good idea and can be used as organic fertiliser.

Decorations contribute to rubbish from office parties. These can be reduced and use simple reusable decorations. They can also be passed on to other people to reduce your waste. Also, one may consider hosting the party at a different venue where they offer disposal of waste apart from the office. To reduce packaging waste one needs to but things in bulk than individually packed items. People should also consider avoiding using disposable cutlery and plates and encourage people to bring their own plates that they can wash at home or after eating.

A good idea can be setting up two different bins in the room one for recycle and one for food waste. This will make it easy for you to sort out the rubbish per type.

I have seen in most parties I attend they provide plastic containers for people to take home some left over food. This reduces the amount of waste to thrown out. Another thing that has seemed to be effective is adapt a serve yourself style where everyone serves their own food hence they will only put things they want to eat and the amounts that they want to have and this in turn reduces the amount of waste.

Lastly but not least if it’s a bring and share type of party it is good to encourage participants to bring home cooked meals and drinks in bulk as these have less packaging and this will also reduce the rubbish amount.

Tips for Making Your Lawn Green

A green lawn is not only beautiful but increases the value of your building. Be it on a business or residential lawn it only requires good keeping and less chemicals as possible for it to be healthy.

One should water occasionally but deeply and especially at late evening or early morning when it is cool to reduce the risk of evaporation.  Watering involves letting the soil dry a bit before the next watering time. Heavy soils like clay require more water and less frequency of watering because it retains water for a long time and filtration is not fast. Sandy soils require less water but more frequent watering as it allows water to go through easily and does not keep water for a long time. Water deeply enough about 100 to 150 mm and this can be measured using spade to determine how much water is there. One should remember to turn off their automatic watering system when it is not necessary for example when it is raining, it is easier to forget I have personally seen a lot of sprinklers running in heavy rain. You should also never use warm or hot water when watering the lawn, you can make sure by emptying the hose before watering the lawn especially in hot days. Finally, you should adhere to the state regulations or watering for example in ACT use of sprinklers is only allowed before 10am and after 4pm.

There are tips on mowing your lawn that will keep it healthy and green. Mow your lawn at the highest setting as leaving it a bit tall provides some shade protects the ground reducing evaporation and retaining water for long periods. To retain nutrients of the lawn good practice is to keep the lawn clippings after mowing on the lawn so the nutrients can sink down the ground. In addition, one should not mow the lawn within two weeks of planting as it gives it time for the roots to develop. Another good practice is not to mow wet grass at it does not only make it slippery but also makes the lawn to look uneven and when is uneven there are parts that will get more sunshine than others and becomes hard to maintain also. Another tip to keep the lawn even is to mow different directions every time so one should take note on the direction every time they mow the lawn.

Fertilisers provide food for plants. Choosing the right fertiliser can be difficult but the most important thing is to know the composition. Most bags say how much nutrients are found inside. The most important nutrient for growth of green plants is nitrogen and must be always be more than the other two other components as if it is not right composition the lawn will be burnt easily. One should fertilise in early spring to jump start the root growth.

No matter how much the lawn is healthy there is going to be a few weeds that will pop up. One can either manually remove them or use herbicides as the last resort as it causes pollution and can damage other plants nearby. Herbicides and fertilisers should not be applied when it’s too hot or when it’s raining for them to be effective. For insects and pests such as grups and beetles that can destroy the lawn one can use pesticides and insecticides although they destroy other useful organisms such as worms. When using this one needs to be careful and use personal protective equipment as they are highly poisonous.

Check the Ph value is important as neither acidic or too alkaline is good for growth. One can purchase a kit and use lime and sulphur to adjust these levels depending on the results.
