Rubbish Items That Can Be Great Sources of Income

Rubbish items can yield new products or new raw materials. Roll your sleeves up and employ the right application of separating techniques of your rubbish items. From plastic, paper, glass or metal, you’re keeping the environment protected and free from the harmful effects of this garbage.

There are numerous benefits when you recycle. To name just a few when you recycle, you’re helping in reducing the use of natural resources while boosting the economy and saving energy. Sometimes it lacks immediate personal benefit, but these recyclable rubbish items can be great sources of income as well.

Turn your rubbish items as your passive income. When you have a passive income, it is a great supplementary source of funds for many people. With these recycled items, it can provide a valuable lifeline during tough times or other recession such as government lockdown imposed in response to the pandemic (COVID19) crisis.

In order to make the most out of your rubbish items, check out these recycled items and turn your trash into cash. 

Aluminium Cans

Aluminium cans are definitely on top of your recyclable list when you think about making money. Indeed, it is one of the easiest and common materials to recycle and the most valuable. This metal can be recycled infinitely without changing its quality and is abundant all over the country without seasonal interruptions.

Paper and Cardboards

Paper and cardboards are the most commonly used items in your workplace and at home. Some types of paper are more profitable than any ordinary wastepaper. By recycling wastepaper, it can generate new paper or different raw materials. 

You will not only help in generating new materials, but you’re also creating a sustainable enterprise while contributing to keeping the environment protected.

Cardboards are only good and profitable when it’s in a pristine condition. So, when you have cardboards lying empty after your moving out, flatten them right away for profitable use later.


Due to the single-use of plastics in our home, your workplace and even in any commercial places, we are generating a huge pile of plastics every day. 

The Australian Government created a new initiative along with other representatives from different industries, targeting to phase out unnecessary single-use of plastic. Some countries created a campaign, encouraging to pick up plastic in exchange for cash. Some companies innovated a reverse vending machine where individuals can turn in their plastic bottles for money.


There are several ways you can earn with electronics including your old smartphone. Some old and outdated electronic items that are up for disposal can be profitable. Although it takes a huge effort in recycling electronic waste, it is possible with dedication. There are organisations you can find on the internet who will reimburse your electronic waste.

Australian Less Waste, More Resources

The Australian National Waste Policy provided a framework for collective action for businesses, governments, communities and individuals until 2030. This policy identifies and provided encompassing principles for waste management such as:

  1. Avoid waste
  2. Improve resource recovery
  3. Increase the use of recycled materials and build demand and markets for recycled products
  4. Better management of material flow that benefits human health, the environment and the economy
  5. Improve information in supporting innovation, guide investments and enable informed consumer decisions

One out of five principles is to provide and build markets for recycled materials that will not only increase awareness on the increasing waste streaming in our land and waterways. It also helps pique every individual’s interest in taking recycling seriously and make the best value out of your rubbish items.


Recycling contributes a lot in minimising the amount of garbage ending up in our landfills as well as the negative impacts of waste in the environment including the soil, water and air. It reduces the procurement of raw materials that will be used in producing new products.
