We all recycle; it has become a normal part of our everyday lives. Doing our part for the environment is the Aussie way. So here at Haulaway, we are also committed to achieving environmental sustainability.

To ensure efficient and responsible waste and recycling management, Haulaway separates waste into four categories: General Waste, Commingled, Paper and Cardboard, and Organics. Our clients separate their rubbish into clearly labelled bins. This allows materials to be diverted away from landfills and towards proper recycling. Thanks to recycling, these materials have the ability to be turned into reusable resources.


Not only is recycling environmentally friendly; it is cost effective for our clients and allows for operational efficiency. Without trying to sound too clichéd, it really is a ‘win-win’ situation.   

Haulaway also takes responsibility for our impact on the environment. We use quality trucks with Euro 5 vehicle standards; allowing for the reduction in fuel use and emission control systems.  

Being ‘green’ isn’t a new concept; it’s become common practice these days with most individuals and good companies making the effort. We’re just making sure that we’re doing our bit for the environment too.

It’s that time of year again; winter is definitely upon us.  Mornings are colder, jackets have become a staple again, footy fever is back, and weekend snow trips are on the cards. This time also means the beginning of the new financial year. Pros: lodging our tax returns. Cons: the dreaded rate rises. These nuisances are unavoidable part of life, to which unfortunately Haulaway are not immune.            

What are the reasons behind this rate rise I hear you ask? Well, the rate rises are all driven by landfill prices. A combination of gate price, operation costs and government levies increase landfill prices, which impacts the waste industry.

If you’ve been hit with a rate rise recently and are unhappy or find it unreasonable, we encourage you to give Haulaway a call or get a quote on our website. We are committed to limiting the rate rises impact by redirecting rubbish material away from landfill and towards recycling. Therefore minimising the rate rise and reducing customer costs.

Let Haulaway soften the blow of your rubbish bill’s rate rise for this financial year. Take your mind off finances and back to planning that snow trip.
