Rubbish And Waste Types

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.

We deal with green waste removal in Melbourne as well as hard rubbish, please see details below:

General Waste

Accepted Waste Items

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

Prohibited Waste Items

Bricks, pavers, tiles, concrete, small stones, rocks, food (putrid) waste, asbestos, liquid waste (paints, oils, thinners, chemicals), plaster, heavy timber, tree trunks, sleepers are not accepted as general waste.

Special Instructions

We can advise you on removing prohibited items, often at low or no cost. Plaster and heavy timber’s is in the mixed heavy rates below.

Heavy Waste

Accepted Waste Items

Bricks, pavers, tiles, concrete and rocks are accepted by the recyclable quarry waste.

Please note – No other waste types can be included, We recycle 100% of heavy waste but it cannot be recycled if it’s mixed with any general waste. So it’s a strict policy of not mixing any other waste, not even the smallest amount.

If you have other waste we can do it separately at the lower rate applicable to that waste type as we do not charge for callouts or time.

If I could give Steve 10 stars I would. Steve was confronted with a clean up of a unit that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies.Steve took the time to assess the situation, provide some honest and frank feedback but then cracked on and got the job done.I could not recommend Steve more highly!
Steve was fantastic from first contact to job completion. He went above and beyond to complete an extremely challenging job. Reliable, friendly and all at an extremely reasonable price. Could not recommend him more.
