If you’re wondering just how much garden waste collection costs, then continue reading this article to find out.

Garden Waste Collection Options

Before we look at the costs of garden waste collection, it pays to know what options you have, specifically in Brisbane.

There is, of course, the Brisbane City Council’s Green Waste Recycling Service which most Brisbane residents will be familiar with (the light green lid wheelie bins), but did you know there is another option at hand?

An alternate option to the BCC’s Green Waste Recycling Service is a private garden waste collection service. You can avail a private garden waste collection service from any number of providers in Brisbane, but in general, terms, how they differ is on their size and collection schedule; they are larger in size and offer more frequent and flexible collection options.

Garden Waste Collection Costs

Knowing you have two options at hand; the BCC’s Green Waste Recycling Service and a private garden waste collection service, let’s now look at the cost of each.

The BCC’s Green Waste Recycling Service provides 1 x 240-litre green waste recycling bin, which is collected fortnightly for $21.51 per quarter ($86.04 per year).

Each private garden waste collection service will differ in price, but using 4 Waste’s garden waste collection service as an example, we provide 1 x 2-cubic metre green waste skip bin, which is collected after seven days at the cost of $275 per hire.

4 Waste’s Garden Skip Bin

Now, looking at these figures, it’s easy to see that the BCC’s Green Waste Recycling Service is the cheaper option. But, let’s take size into account. As stated, the BCC’s Green Waste Recycling Service provides one 240-litre bin, while we offer a 2-cubic metre bin – our one bin is equivalent to eight 240-litre bins (2 trailers).

Therefore, if you have a large volume of garden waste that needs to be collected, a small 240- litre green waste recycling bin isn’t going to cut it.

For large amounts of garden waste, a private garden waste collection service such as 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. The good news is, the more waste you have, the bigger the savings.
