Budget Waste Management 🚮: When you run a busy shop, restaurant, office or any other business, you would want your waste provider to be a number of things: a provider of budget waste management, meaning low costs for the service. You also want the provider to be reliable and let you focus on actually running your business.

In today’s blog, we ask: does a budget waste management solution (such as provided by Waster) mean low-quality service? Or, is it just as good or better as alternative providers?

About Waster

Waster provides budget waste management services to small and medium Australian companies. When we say budget, we mean low-cost but high-quality. We pride ourselves on our customer service and are so confident in our quality and reliability that we offer 30-day agreements.

That is right! Unlike other waste companies that will seek to lock you into a multi-year contract, we only require month-to-month (i.e., 30-day agreements). If you are unhappy with our service for whatever reason (or for no particular reason at all), you can cancel by sending us a written notification (a written e-mail will suffice) and giving us a 30-day notice to cancel.

We provide all services from general waste bin hire to TerraCycle Zero Waste boxes. Furthermore, we also provide cardboard recycling, sanitary services and grease trap cleaning. Just shoot us a message if you want a specific waste or recycling service.


Budget waste management: do you need to pay lots of money for bin collections?

Let’s be honest, bin collections are one of those things that no one wants to pay lots of money for.

It is a necessary evil; you need the service to be reliable and punctual. After all, there is nothing worse than bins not getting picked up for a few days in a row, especially if you are a busy cafe or restaurant!

At Waster, we offer a high-quality service at a great price whilst saving you money by cutting out the hidden extras. See our blog on what you will actually pay for rubbish bin hire prices in Melbourne.

What costs does Waster save you?

When we say budget waste management we mean that we do not charge the following fees and charges – see our blog on waste management price list:

No rental fees. If your bin is picked up at least once a month, we do not charge a rental fee.

No delivery fees. We do not charge delivery or account set up or opening fees.

No removal fees. If you cancel, there is no hidden fee stopping you from leaving us. At the end of the day, the last thing we want to do is make someone stay with us who does not want our services!

No environmental fee. We believe that you pay enough through landfill levies without having to pay another environmental fee.

No contract termination or liquidated damages fee (for cancelling early). Our agreements are month to month, so you only need to give us 30 days’ notice.

Does budget waste management mean low quality?

Definitely not! Our business model is definitely of high quality with low costs. We, thus, service lots of loyal customers. Plus, our cost to acquire and keep customers is much lower; this means we do not operate a pricey rep model.

As our contracts are 30 days, we have a real incentive not to push through big annual price rises and spend money on reps visiting unhappy customers!

Cardboard and paper recycling

This is a very important budget waste management service to avail of if your business produces a significant amount of paper and cardboard waste. But, you can still get this even if you do not produce a significant amount of cardboard and paper waste to help in the environment’s sustainability.

With this, you not only reduce your costs but also help sustain the environment, as well as cleaning up your work premises.

Depending on your waste generated, you can avail of Waster’s 240 litre, 660 litre, and 1,100 litre rear lift bin services (recommended for smaller businesses that produce a fair amount of cardboard and paper waster).

Additionally, you can also avail of Waster’s 1.5 cubic-metre, 3.0 cubic-metre, and 4.5 cubic-metre front lift bin services for waste removal, which are recommended for bigger businesses needing bigger bins.


Commingled recycling service

Our budget waste management and recycling services also include much-needed commingled recycling.

In fact, you can put all your bottles, cans, and drink containers in waste here! They will be sorted out once collected and given a new life, therefore sustaining the environment.

Also, recycling bins can also help you in saving costs! Know that the heavier your general waste bin, the more costly it is. Correspondingly, recycling bins help you reduce that!

These are the different sizes you can purchase, depending on your business’s generated waste:

  • 240-litre commingled service
  • 660-litre commingled service
  • 1,100-litre commingled service


Confidential paper destruction

Confidential Paper shredding 240 litre bin service bin destruction

There are some papers or documents that your business needs to get rid of but cannot do so easily due to the information contained in them being sensitive data.

In saying this, Waster offers businesses the best budget waste management service solution for this: confidential paper destruction.

Waster offers two standard confidential paper bin sizes, along with a high-quality service:

  • 240-litre confidential paper bin
  • one-off service (120-litre) or the standard 240-litre


General waste

Anything that is considered non-recyclable and hazardous can often be put in the general waste bin. Along with the commingled recycling bin service, businesses also need this rubbish collection service to dispose of their trash properly.

Like in Waster’s other budget waste management services, the bins come in different sizes (depending on how big the business is).

For the smaller, rear lift bins:

  • 240-litre general waste bin service
  • 660-litre general waste bin service
  • 1,100-litre general waste bin service

For the bigger, front lift bins:

  • 1.5 cubic-metre general waste bin service
  • 3.0 cubic-metre general waste bin service
  • 4.5 cubic-metre general waste bin service


Grease trap liquid service

Grease Trap Liquid Service

Restaurants or cafes must be careful and check their equipment and ensure that they maintain cleanliness and hygiene in their workplace. The grease trap, especially, can get dirty when neglected. But, some businesses simply do not have the means and time to clean their grease trap, which can lead to problems arising if left uncleaned.

So, what businesses can do is avail of a grease trap cleaning service. Waster offers that as well!


Medical waste service

As they always say, “Health is wealth”. But, along with the healthcare facilities that treat the sick and injured, also comes the waste generated.

Furthermore, hospitals, laboratories, and other healthcare facilities produce contaminated, biomedical waste, as well as harmful chemicals that can compromise the health and safety of humans, plants, animals, and the environment as a whole.

As a result, proper waste management is especially required in the healthcare sector due to the reasons stated above. Waster also offers medical bin services for health businesses that need proper waste management in their facilities.

Waster offers the bin service in two standard sizes:

  • 120-litre medical bin service
  • 240-litre medical bin service


Organic Waste Service

Based on what I have stated above in the grease trap liquid service, food and drinks businesses will also be full of food waste.

Some businesses resort to putting food waste in the general waste bin, which Waster does not recommend. This is because general waste bins are charged based on the weight of the bin upon the pickup schedule. So, if your bin is heavy, you will be charged more.

The best thing to do here is to purchase an organic waste bin service to “recycle” your food waste. In other words, your food waste will be turned into compost or energy to prevent it from going into a landfill.

Waster offers one standard bin size service for organic waste: a 120-litre organic waste bin service.
