All of your waste product is not taken to the same destination. Different kind of waste needs to be disposed off in different ways.

There are several kinds of skip bins for the different waste products. Separate the waste you have. This will help you decide the right kind of bin you require. Here are the types of waste you need to take into consideration when choosing the appropriate bin.

       1. General Waste

A general waste bin will be suited for any lightweight products. They can be both domestic and commercial waste products. Some lighter green waste can also be placed in this kind of bin. Keep in mind it has a weight limit of 150 kgs per cubic meter. Therefore, things likely to exceed waste limit should be excluded. If you exceed the limit you will be notified and charged for it. These can be waste products like heavy tree trunks, any kind of soil, or building/renovation waste. Some examples of waste that you can place in this bin are:

  • Household waste (toys, paper, kitchenware etc)
