Choosing the Right Waste Types and Bin Combinations?

Why do we ask what waste types you have? Firstly we need to match the size bin that best suits your needs and secondly to ensure that once a bin is filled we can lift it back onto a truck and safely transport the bin.

Once this consideration has been made we then look at various waste types and what opportunities and locations we can dispose of certain waste types. Sometimes this may result in an opportunity to offer a discount on some waste types.

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.

Understanding different Waste Streams – Waste Reduction & Recycling

In addition to this 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. Understanding different types of waste allows us to focus 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.
