Choosing the Right Waste Types and Bin Combinations?

The environment is important to us so our company objective is to achieve a reduction of waste that ends up in landfill by implementing a recycling, resource reduction and recovery program. Our focus is on the redirection of waste away from landfill to alternative uses.

Since there are so many ways to reduce, reuse and recycle waste, only a small amount of waste needs to end up as landfill. We believe waste disposal should be the last option. We achieve this by managing the types of waste handled in our bins. The benefit of this is that certain waste types once separated may result in a saving to our customers.

We have put together the information below to help you to choose the right bin for your rubbish removal needs however if you still need more information feel free to ring us for free friendly advice on 3821 3200 or contact us by email.

If you need to dispose of Asbestos type waste and you need more information you can visit the Queensland Government, Workplace Health & Safety site for more information.
