General Rubbish

General rubbish refers to waste with a non-hazardous classification and can be defined as rubbish that has no immediate threat to the environment. It encompasses a broad range and can include, household and domestic waste, garden waste, commercial waste and more.

Green Waste

Green waste is biodegradable waste, including things like grass, flower cuttings, tree or hedge trimmings, and natural food waste. Green waste is generally disposed of separately to general rubbish and we recommend hiring a separate bin for any green waste you might have.

Household Rubbish

Household rubbish, usually just referred to as rubbish, trash or garbage, is comprised of everyday items which are used and thrown out regularly. It generally includes things such as, product packaging, food waste, newspapers, homewares, clothing and furniture.

Electrical Appliances

Discarded electrical appliances, or electronic waste, consists of: old white goods, electronic devices, computers, office equipment, entertainment devices and phones.

Building Waste

Building waste includes demolition debris, concrete, dirt, insulation, bricks and plasterboard. Excess weight charges may apply. We understand construction can involve a lot of building waste, which is why we offer short or long-term contracts for construction worksites, including regular pickup and delivery.

Please note: no asbestos is allowed in skips. If you need asbestos removed or disposed of please contact a specialised asbestos removal business.

Even though we're able to handle almost any type of rubbish, there are a few kinds of waste that our bins are not equipped or legally allowed to be filled with. Types of waste we will not accept include:
