Many customers contact bookabin to find out which bin to order because they have a mixture of waste.
If you have less than a wheelbarrow of soil or concrete, a similar amount of green garden waste and general junk from around the house, this can all be mixed in a general waste bin.
If you have more than a wheelbarrow of clean fill type waste as well as other bits and pieces, we often suggest two smaller bins for different waste types, rather than a large general waste bin, as you can reach the weight limit fairly quickly if you have more than a wheelbarrow of dirt or concrete.
The bin types available are:
General Waste: (suitable for light domestic and commercial waste) - NOT suitable for clean fill as it is too heavy, typically anything involved with a “general clean up around the house and section” that is neither liquid nor hazardous waste. The weight limit on this bin is 150kg per 1 cubic meter (eg: 3cm weight limit is 450kg)
Clean Fill / Hardfill: (soil, clay, sand, concrete, asphalt, brick, rock, tiles, etc) There is no weight limit on this bin because of the heavy nature of the waste.
Green Garden Waste: (leafy green garden waste) - NOT suitable for clean fill, as green waste is disposed of differently, use this bin if you have any of the following: Grass, leaves, tree trimmings, small branches and other organic materials. The weight limit on this bin is 150kg per 1 cubic meter (eg: 3cm weight limit is 450kg)
Soil / Dirt: (100% pure soil / dirt only - no turf or contaminants) the cost of disposing of the pure soil is cheaper than if it is contaminated with other waste, if you mix other waste with the soil you will be charged additional fees as the disposal is more expensive. There is no weight limit on this bin because of the heavy nature of the waste.
Hazardous waste cannot be placed in any skip bin. This includes TV’s, monitors, fridges, paints, solvents, liquids or any asbestos. To dispose of any of these materials you need to contact your local council. They will be able to provide you with a contact who can dispose of anything hazardous or not accepted in your skip bin (i.e. food waste).
