Did you know the type of waste you will be disposing of can have an impact on your costs?

By specifying your waste type at the time of booking can help reduce your costs of hire.


Considering the Size of your Project and Bin Placement

When it comes to placement of the bin it is also good to consider access, a difficult access may mean your bin cannot be placed in the desired location

  • Check low hanging powerlines or tree branches
  • Make sure your bin is not going to block pedestrian access or traffic
  • Is there enough space in your garden area or drive way. Placing the bin in your driveway will prevent troublesome neighbours from filling your bin
  • Check where the bin is to be placed is not in a position to cause harm to yourself or others
  • Ensure there is plenty of room for truck access
  • Inspect the ground, is it solid? This also relates to truck access, check the surface is solid and clear so the truck can realistically reach your desired spot for bin location. A slight incline is fine, the truck cannot magically climb steep cliffs or driveways
  • Consider where your rubbish is located. Is the waste at the front of your property or from the back yard. It would make sense to have the bin as near as possible for loading, Make the location as easy as possible for easy loading
