Please see the below FAQs to answer any questions.
What types of bins are available?
To ensure we can reduce the waste going to landfill, we currently have the either General Waste (Household items) or Green Waste (Garden waste) bins available.
How big are the bins?
The Bulk Bin provided will be no smaller the 3 cubic metres. Please ensure that you measure your larger items to ensure they will fit (without going over the fill line).
If you go above this line the truck will not be able to safely lift the bin. If this occurs you will be asked to remove the extra items from the bulk bin within 24 hours.
If you can’t fit the items in the bulk bin please call us on (08) 9449 3332.
How long will the bin be on my verge for?
Weekday bins are delivered Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and will remain on your property for two nights and one day. Weekend bins will be delivered Thursday or Friday and will remain on your property over the weekend and will be collected either Monday or Tuesday the following week.
Where will the bin be placed?
The bins are placed on the verge outside of the property.
Please note you may be required to sign a waiver if the bulk bin could cause damage to property such as:
- Polished concrete
- Artificial turf and
- All other fixed structures.
If the driver delivering your bulk bin believes there is a chance damage could occur they will discuss this with your and how you would like to proceed.
If damage could occur to your property, without a signed waiver we will not be able to place the skip bin onto your property.
Why has a bin arrived on my verge full?
Due to logistical reasons please be aware that some bulk bins when delivered to your property may be full upon arrival. Please be assured that the rubbish will be emptied on the same day as delivery and that this will not affect the time you have to fill your bin.
