Separate your green waste and other garden waste

The first and foremost thing that you should do when clearing garden waste is to separate green waste from other types of garden waste. Green waste is the recyclable waste, such as leaves, grass clippings, tree branches and other compostable waste. Other types of garden waste may include old garden furniture, broken plant pots and other types of general waste. Once you sort out your waste into these two categories, disposing of the waste becomes far more simple and convenient. Also, since green waste can be recycled, it will be taken to a recycling facility, whereas other garden waste may or may not be recyclable so it will need to be taken to another facility. By sorting out your garden waste, you will save on both time and money when removing it from your premises.

Decide on an environmentally friendly way to get rid of your waste

There are many ways you can get rid of your garden waste. While you can choose to compost the waste in your own garden, it is a time-consuming and laborious process. You will also need a sufficiently large garden space to effectively compost all your waste. Alternatively, once you have your sorted garden waste, you can take it to your local transfer station. However, this will mean that you will need your own transportation and will also need to take out some time to get rid of your waste. Both methods are environmentally friendly ways to get rid of your garden waste on your own, but both methods are definitely tiring and troublesome. The most convenient and efficient way that you can get rid of garden waste is by hiring a garden skip bin, which I will touch on in the following point.

Hire a Garden Skip Bin

The simplest way to remove garden waste (and other waste for that matter), is by hiring a skip bin from a company such as 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. Upon hiring a walk-in garden skip, it will be delivered to your address and all you need to do load the bin with your green waste. We then remove the waste from your premises and take it to the closest Brisbane transfer station. This is a straightforward and convenient way to get rid of your garden waste.

If you have other general waste to be disposed of, you can hire a walk-in junk skip bin. Junk skip bins also accept a mixture of green waste and other waste, so if you have different types of waste in your garden, hiring a junk skip bin is the way to go.


Gardening isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so it’s only natural that a garden will require some serious attention over time. However, this leads to a new issue; how to dispose of the garden waste? Sure, you can choose to get rid of your waste on your own, but this will be a time-consuming and tiresome affair. A much better alternative is to hire a reliable skip bin service, such as 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, wherein professional rubbish removal experts will take care of disposing of your waste.

To hire a skip bin for your garden waste, give 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins a call on 0413 333 330. Alternately, you may make a booking online. Remember, if you have 100% green waste, you should opt for a Walk-In Garden Skip; if you have a mixture of green and general waste, you should opt for a Walk-In junk Skip.
