Rubbish bins Perth: if you have been tasked with booking waste collection or recycling services for your business and you know very little about waste – well maybe this handy cheat sheet will come in handy – and ensure you book a great service at an excellent price.


We often get questions of this nature from someone tasked to organise low cost bin services – but who has never looked at bins or recycling before. Thankfully – it is not really that difficult!



If you are given this task – i.e. as an office manager, warehouse supervisor etc – you need to make sure you cover the most important considerations. The last thing you want is your boss giving you grief over your decision.


Okay – here are the questions to consider and the answers to look for with rubbish bin hire Perth:


A. Will the council provide the rubbish bins Perth service you need?


It is worth checking if your local council will provide the services you need. Council services (when provided) are often very cheap and to some extent subsidised by the residential services. However, many council areas are phasing out collections – meaning you need to arrange commercial services.


In many cases – councils may only provide smaller rubbish bin hire Perth sizes – such as 240 litre wheelie bins. If you require larger – you will likely need a commercial provider.


You can also check what can be recycled for free through Planet Ark – a government backed organisation.


B. What bin size is best for you for ?


Do you know what bin size you require and how often you will need it collected – bins are sized in litres (and the cubic metres once they get bigger). Remember 1000 litres equals 1 cubic metre.


Getting the right bin size for your business will enable you to keep costs down and get enough collections to ensure your business runs smoothly.


You can see all bin sizes available from the smallest 240 litre general waste wheelie bin – up to a 4.5m front lift bin. For larger bins – you are looking at rubbish skip bins Perth. Regular bin services are emptied – with the bin remaining on site – whereas skip services has the bin being taken away when full.
