Waste Types

SKIP BINS FOR ALL TYPES OF WASTE

HOW IT WORKS


To place an order for casual hire, the price you pay will depend on what sort of material you are going to place into the bin. We will discuss all the options with you when you call or email. You can mix categories and pricing is agreed up front. Except in certain circumstances, we don’t charge on weight, just on volume.

THE NOT-SO-FINE-PRINT


As long as you don’t breach our conditions of hire, there are no additional charges. Additional charges may apply where you add material which puts the load into a different category that hasn’t been disclosed at order. It is important to know that if you place any prohibited material in the skip bin, particularly any old fibro/villaboard or other suspect asbestos-containing material, we may refuse to collect the bin until it is decontaminated. In addition, there are significant charges that apply if any concealed prohibited material is found during processing. The protection of our staff from exposure to any hazardous material, particularly to asbestos dust, is paramount. Refer to the “Asbestos” section below for information on this type of material.

ASBESTOS AND OTHER HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Bin Master strictly prohibits any old fibro/villabord, any other suspect asbestos-containing material or any suspect hazardous material mixed with any other material in our skip bins. We are very vigilant in policing every bin to ensure our staff are never exposed to dangerous, hazardous material of any type. We reserve the right to refuse to collect a skip bin where we suspect there may be contamination with any hazardous material. 

The cost of managing the decontamination of any concealed material through our processing site is always passed on the customer who has ordered the bin and this is a condition of hire of our skip bins. As it is impossible to list all hazardous material here, it is the responsibility of the client to ensure that no hazardous material is placed in the bin. We prohibit any liquids or chemicals to assist in mitigating any risk to our employees. 

In the case of asbestos-containing material, old fibro/villaboard is the obvious culprit. However, there is also asbestos found in many other products, such as pipe coverings, old hessian underfloor covering and fake brick products, among the very few. When you are renovating a house built prior up to the very late 80s, you should first check with your local council regarding material which may contain asbestos.

We do accept old fibro/villaboard and other suspect material in our general mixed skip bins only where the client can provide certification that it does not contain asbestos. The three types of certification we will accept are as follows:

  1. Proof that the building was constructed after 1987, e.g., a copy of council-stamped plans, details proving the date of the subdivision, etc.
  2. Manufacturer’s marking visible to us on each type of produce, e.g., partial sheet of villaboard, which states that it does not contain asbestos or other words to that effect.
  3. Certificate provided by NATA-certified laboratory stating that the product is asbestos free. If there is more than one type of product in the load, each type must have been tested and confirmed as asbestos-free. We recommend Clearsafe in Wollongong (contact number is 1300 042 962).

WHAT TO DO WHEN IT IS CONFIRMED TO BE ASBESTOS-CONTAINING MATERIAL

Bin Master can supply a skip bag specially designed to dispose of bonded asbestos material. Bin Master cannot supply services for friable asbestos material.

PROHIBITED MATERIAL

Apart from the risk of contamination with hazardous material, some other material is prohibited due to the difficulty in processing this waste through our site or where commercial quantities of this material are not accepted at local waste depots.

All putrescible material (household food and garbage, disposable nappies, dog poop, etc., e.g., waste that will putrify), is prohibited because we don’t want our staff exposed to anything that can rot as skip bins don’t come with lids.

Some of the prohibited items can be dropped off at designated Council drop-off days. Whilst domestic households can access this service, we cannot dispose of commercial quantities in this manner so it is much easier for you to dispose of than for us to collect this waste.

DIRT AND SOIL

LIQUIDS AND CHEMICALS

FOOD / ANY PUTRESCIBLE WASTE

GAS BOTTLES

TYRES

AEROSOL CANS

OLD FIBRO / VILLABOARD

OLD LOOSE INSULATION

ANY HAZARDOUS MATERIAL

WHY DON'T WE ACCEPT DIRT/SOIL

Dirt and soil is a problem for Bin Master to process as it is very time consuming to separate and the cost to do so would be passed on to the customer. To keep the cost lower, we only accept dirt and soil separated in a skip bin on their own, e.g., with no other waste. If it is mixed with any other material or contaminated in such a way that would prevent it from being acceptable to the receiving depot as dirt/soil, the customer must pay the cost for general solid waste, again a prohibitive cost due to the weight of this material. 

If you do have dirt or soil, we will need to discuss with you where it is coming from and what may be contained within the soil which may increase the cost to you. If you order a skip bin for clean dirt/soil and it is contaminated with other material when we arrive to collect it you will be required to pay an additional charge, dependent on the volume and type of contamination before we will collect it.
