Managing & Transporting Waste from Bundaberg since 1995.

Previously Known as Rechenberg Specialist Transport. The business was started over 20 years ago by Bob Rechenberg. Building the business to supply waste services to the Wide Bay, Central Qld Coast, and the Sunshine Coast.

In July 2019 the business was purchased by John Homewood. John has 30 plus years’ experience in the waste industry and being from Rockhampton originally has a great understanding of the difficulties faced by people from outside the SE corner in disposing of waste in the most environmentally friendly way.

RST Waste Services is still a family own business operating out of our Bundaberg based depot. Whilst John does not have a hand’s on running in the day-to-day tasks his knowledge is readily available to our capable staff. All our staff are local to the Wide Bay and have a great combined knowledge of the areas we service and over 50 years combined experience in the waste industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum duration for a waste disposal contract with RST?

There are no contractual obligations: You can use our services as little or as often as you need to. You are not bound to us for a specific term, as with many other medical waste and sanitation companies.

My workplace requires a secure waste disposal. Are you able to provide this?

All RST staff hold a current certificate of federal police clearance, enabling us to pick up waste without compromising your OHS and legal obligations.

Our 240lt wheelie bins have lids that can be padlocked and will remain locked whilst in transit to the disposal area. On arrival at the incinerator the bins are unlocked and emptied into the incinerator in a controlled environment. We believe this gives you, our customer, a greater confidence that the confidentiality of your documents is being maintained to a high integrity. 

To help you fulfil your legal requirements for confidentiality we supply a certificate of destruction outlining the volume and location of destruction.

Do you provide separate pharmaceutical and anatomical waste containers?

As our medical waste containers all get incinerated we only provide a single bin for all clinical waste types. Your pharmaceutical and anatomical waste and sealed sharps containers can go in a single bin to simplify your processes.

Which areas of QLD do you service?

RST currently services Bundaberg, North and South Burnett, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Gympie & Sunshine Coast. If your area is not listed, please contact us and we'll see if we can arrange something for you.
