Does it make a difference what sort of waste I produce – i.e. for say a cafe vs an office?


For waste bin hire Sydney in 2019 (note we cover all areas – from Burwood rubbish collection to Sutherland Shire) – it does make a difference what sort of waste you produce. For example – some companies only collect what is known as dry waste i.e. waste without large amounts of food waste or other organic waste (known as wet or putrescible waste).


Some companies who collect dry waste in Sydney – are able to recycle a certain proportion of it – i.e. for recycling into new materials – or for usage as fuel through incineration. In some cases – over 90% of general waste collected through waste bin hire Sydney services can be recycled!


Wet waste – such as produced by cafe, restaurant etc -will almost always go to a landfill in Sydney metro. If your waste is completely food based – you may consider an organic food waste option – where the waste goes for composting or energy generation.

Note – some older terms and conditions that were common in the waste industry such as rollover clauses – are now not valid for most small customers.

Do I need space for the bin?


Yes – you should consider the space you have available at your location for the appropriate bin.


For example – 240 litre and 660 litre bins generally fit through a standard door frame – this should be kept in mind if you have an internal bin room for storage.


Front lift bins i.e. from 1.5m upwards – are emptied by lifting the bin over the truck.


You will thus need considerable height clearance and will be usually unsuitable for in an underground carpark etc.


Health and safety is also vital – and will require an inspection etc.
