In mid 2019 of course – offices may look and sound a bit different than in previous years – such as wework etc – but much of the waste produced remains the same.


In this article we will cover some of the most common waste streams and cost effective solutions that office based businesses can easily implement so as to minimise their costs, boost recycling and ensure no interruption of their day today business.



It is good to know that in an office business – you have a number of positives. Firstly, you can recycle almost everything in your office with a bit of effort.  Secondly – as your bins are quite light, you will pay low rates for general waste bins. Office bins Australia services cover pretty much all the waste and recycling requirements you may have.


Office bins Australia – let’s cover the basics

Offices tend to produce reasonably light and clean waste streams i.e. in comparison to say a cafe or a factory producing food. For this reason their bins tend to be quite light and contain significant amounts of recyclable materials.


In waste and recycling industry language – they produce dry general waste – i.e. meaning that it does not rot or smell bad generally.


The bin sizes required by offices also tend to be quite small – i.e. sizes such as 240 litre wheelie bins or 660 litres tend to be sufficient to meet your recycling needs. Waster focuses on providing competitive pricing for these waste streams – you can see images and descriptions of these bins on our waste shop pages here.


Generally – an office business will have small internal bins – and can separate waste internally – before having your cleaners bring the waste downstairs – where it is deposited into larger waste bins for truck collection.


We provide wheelie bins for offices services on schedules to suit your needs such as monthly, fortnightly and weekly etc. We understand that offices often do not need their bins collected as frequently as other businesses. We also provide pricing reflecting the light weights of your bins. When booking a general waste bin service for your office – you should select the cheapest category i.e. “Transport, warehousing, retail (non food), offices, professional services“. We thus provide pricing that reflects your waste contents and helps you keep prices low.
