Waste Types

Deciding what sort of Waste you have?

Identifying the sort of waste you have is normally straight forward. 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.

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. By defining different waste types we are able to ensure that some waste streams go straight to recycling or reuse, minimising the impact to the environment. In some situations by separating your waste types this may result in a discount on our normal pricing.

Identifying and where possible separating waste streams ensures that loads that are classified as Mixed Waste, Heavy, Solid & Clean Fill Waste and Recyclable Heavy Materials do not exceed the ability of our equipment and trucks to lift bins back on and transport them within the allowable Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM).
