Waste Types, and why it’s important.

Certain types of waste are prohibited from being placed in skip bins by law.

In addition, the dumps where we dispose of your waste have very strict guidelines, which we are bound to abide by.

It is critical that you correctly identify the type of waste you are going to place in your bin to avoid additional charges imposed by the disposal facility.

Accepted Waste Items

General household waste – Boxes, timber, furniture, white goods, electrical appliances, clothes, toys, carpet, green waste (additional costs apply to remove mattress, televisions, monitors, tyres and gas bottles).

Prohibited Waste Items
