Please Note
To sustain the above quoted highly competitive prices, we rely on the cooperation of our customers to follow the waste type guidelines and only place the allowable items into bins.

Any over-filled bins above the height of a skip, will be off-loaded to the customer property, to the allowable level. Any items placed in a bin, which were not included in the Waste Type description, will incur an additional Charge.

Bins placed on a Council Land (i.e. nature strip or road) WILL attract a City Council Permit Fee. We are obliged to obtain a permit on YOUR behalf. Prices for permits vary from council to council and sometimes depend on the number of days. We are a registered supplier with a number of councils and will give you an exact price on application.
