What small wheelie bin sizes are available
Through our online waste management shop provided you can see all the wheelie bin sizes Australia available.

Note: most bins provided for home usage will be of either 120 litres or 240 litres depending on the waste stream (local councils are progressively trying to decrease the size of general waste bins available for residents to increase recycling and decrease their costs). The litres refers to the volume of the bin i.e. 240 litres would contain 240 litres of water when full. Check out our 120 litre and 240 litre bins for secure document disposal.

Does your council provide the service – often do for small bins
A number of councils (though decreasing) continue to provide collections of smaller wheelie bins for commercial businesses and organisations. This is certainly not as prevalent as it used to be and is being phased out in a number of areas.
You should investigate if this service is available to you, as it may be significantly cheaper than can be provided by commercial waste companies.
Use on site bins – rosette lids etc
You may be planning on utilising smaller wheelie bins for on site usage – i.e. if you operate a large site such as a school, hospital, convention centre or hotel. It is common to empty the smaller bins into larger bins such as 3.0 cubic metre or 4.5 cubic metre bins for collection as this is more efficient and reduces collection cost.
Waster can help you with numerous additions to use on site bins such as rosette lids (see below) to help meet your onsite needs.
Bin lifters and tipplers
Waste can provide bin lifters and tippler machines to facilitate emptying small wheelie bins into larger bins for collection. This can be extremely useful on site and reduce injuries as well as spilled garbage around the facility and significantly reduce time requirements.
