As I’ve hinted, green waste skip bins offer many advantages in terms of removing green waste from a property and ensuring that it is managed in an environmentally friendly manner. However, there is a lot more you should know about green waste skip bins, which I cover in today’s article.

Green waste skip bins come in many sizes

Like standard skip bins, green waste skip bins come in many varieties and sizes. In Brisbane, you will find that this varies from provider to provider.

At 4 Waste Walk-in Skip Bins, we are unique in the sense that we have just one size skip bin, a 6 m3 skip bin, which we deliver for all size hires. How we differ is in our pricing structure. Rather than ordering a 5 m3 skip and have a 5 m3 skip delivered, which is usually how skip hire works; with 4 Waste, you receive our 6 m3 skip bin and fill it with your green waste.

If you find that you only fill it to the 3 m3 mark, then you are only charged for 3 m3 of green waste. If you have more than 6 m3, simply fill the first skip and we will replace it with a second skip.

What you can dispose of in green waste skip bins

There are strict regulations as to what can be placed in a green waste skip bin. This may vary from provider to provider, but generally, it is only 100% green waste.

Green waste is defined as biological waste, this being, any organic waste that can be composted. Examples of green waste include grass clippings, pruned tree foliage, leaves, woodchip, bark, and also kitchen food waste – fruit and vegetables.

At 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, we accept 100% green waste in our green waste skip bins. We accept logs up to 200 mm in diameter. Click here for more information.

Just as important in knowing what can be disposed of in green waste skip bins is what cannot be disposed of.
