Perth skip bins for small and medium business customers

When customers from Perth inquire about Perth Skip hire and waste removal they fall into two categories:

1. Provision of a temporary, open-top bin that will be left at your site. This bin will be then collected a set number of days later (i.e., 2-5 days later). Bins of this type can be used for housing renovations, spring cleaning, garage cleanouts as well as construction jobs etc.

These bins can be in sizes up to greater than 20 cubic metres. The other type is…

2. A large bin for scheduled service (or, as the Americans would say โ€“ a dumpster) in regards to waste management.

The bin can be as large as a skip (i.e., up to 4.5m cubed). These bins are for scheduled regular services for commercial businesses and organisations.

That is pretty much it. Once you have made your booking, a friendly Waster customer service agent will be in touch to arrange your bin delivery and confirm your service details.


Waster specialises in the second type, reliable commercial waste bin services in Perth

Waster has built its business model on providing online, low cost and extremely high-quality waste management services to small and medium commercial enterprises and businesses in the greater Perth region.

Our services can be booked with pickups as infrequent as once a month. In other words, you will be provided with a bin size up to 4.5 cubic metres. Additionally, you will be charged no rental fee or site fee as long as the bin is collected on a scheduled service at least once a month.

Check out our online shop for waste management options with graded pricing by location and collection frequency.


How to book your Perth waste bin services online

To book your bin service online is really easy. You simply access our online shop and follow the simple steps:

A. Select your required waste stream –ย  See our online waste management portal here for all bins and options

B. Select your waste disposal bins Perth size – namely, the bin size that suits your business.

C. Select your location and schedule – how often would you like the bin to be collected? Note that you will receive price reductions for choosing more frequent collections.

You can also check out our blog on skip bin hire Newcastle if you are on the other side of the country. You will be able to arrange a range of skip bin sizes for your waste needs โ€“ whether they be commercial industrial, green waste, construction or hazardous waste.


Can you see any differences between our waste services and SMEs?

Waster is a Perth WA commercial waste management company with distinct differences and benefits for businesses just like yours. We offer a clear break from other waste management companies services in Perth, which we will further talk about in this blog.

Most other waste management companies operating in Australia will seek to have you sign a long term. This often means signing a multi-year contract that is difficult to break out from. Also, this contract will have lots of clauses that lock you in. Lastly, it may also contain hidden charges. At Waster, we pride ourselves on having no hidden fees or charges.

In fact, because we operate on flexible agreements in the Perth metro, you never need to sign a long term contract for your business and commercial waste collections.


What is included in Perth WA waste management agreements?

If you have been stung by a waste management Perth WA company in the past (such as hidden terms and conditions or rapidly increased prices) that charges more than they originally indicated and locks you into a long term contract, that only does detriments for your company. Waster provides a real difference.

You will find we are unlike other commercial waste management Perth WA companies; we do not charge hidden extras. We do not charge you bin rentals, site fees, enviro fees, bin delivery fees or any other hidden charges.

Your quote is on a no lock-in basis. You can cancel at any time (with no cancellation fee) by providing us with 30 days written notice; an email will be fine. In general, we do not charge overweight fees for general waste. If your bin is consistently heavier than agreed after a couple of months, we will discuss this with you.

Note that you are always protected by our guarantees as above.

We provide the bin, simple as that! There is no delivery or set up fee. The delivery is usually within 7 business days from booking. It takes 7 days usually to set up a site and deliver bins, as we need to follow the following process:


Processes we usually follow:

  • Check the site for access and any safety concerns
  • Route the services to an existing trucking route
  • Arrange delivery of bins etc. Often, the delivery vehicle will be in an area one day a week.

We can also provide you with a padlock free of charge for the bin if required. This can prevent other people from dumping in your bins. You can leave the bin locked as the driver will have a key.

We generally adjust prices for commercial waste management in Perth WA once per year โ€“ on the 1st July or in line with levy changes from the Western Australia Government. We provide a total waste management service in Perth WA as we provide all bin types and waste stream collections. This ranges from general waste bin collections to sanitary bins and cardboard recycling, among many others.

Waste levies have increased significantly in Perth in recent years, making general waste in particular much more expensive. Please see the current levy info here.


A quote from the WA Government statement

“Western Australia has seen significant increases in its waste levy in recent years.

“In January 2015, fees for sending putrescible waste to landfill increased from $28 to $55 a tonne and inert waste went up from $8 to $40 a tonne. By July 1, 2018 fees for all waste reached $70 per tonne.

“To ensure the waste levy framework is robust, and to allow time for the review to be completed, the McGowan Government will not increase the waste levy for 2019-20.

“I will publish the schedule of rates beyond these years as soon as our review of the scope and application of the waste levy is complete.

“The State Government recognises the waste levy acts as an important lever to reduce the disposal of waste to landfill and to encourage recycling.

“This will be one of the strategies we engage to achieve our waste strategy target that aims to reuse or recycle at least 75 per cent of waste generated in WA by 2030.”


Questions to consider and answers to look for


A. Will the council provide the Perth rubbish bins 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 for Perth WA waste management sizes such as a 240-litre wheelie bin. 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?

Do you know what bin size you require and how often you will need it collected? Bins are sized in litres โ€“ in cubic metres once they get bigger. Remember that 1000 litres equate to 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 in Perth. Regular bin services are emptied with the bin remaining on-site, whereas skip services has the bin being taken away when full.

C. Can you reduce costs by recycling waste?

Did you know that recycling is usually cheaper than disposing of all your rubbish bins’ contained waste in landfill? Due to levies on dumping at landfill, it can save you lots of money. Implement this by organising cardboard and paper recycling or commingled bins (yellow bin) for your bottles and cans.

There has been lots of bad press around recycling recently due to increasing recycling standards demanded by China and a shortage of facilities in Australia.

However, due to landfill levies increasing each year, recycling is certainly still financially viable. And, companies have lots of incentives to recycle as much as possible. Recycling paper, cardboard, bottles and cans will certainly save you money in 2024.


D. Can you get a low-priced waste management rubbish bin service in Perth WA?

You need to shop around a bit to ensure you get the best price. Remember that not all companies provide all services.

So, if you are seeking rubbish bin hire in Joondalup, Perth, you may have to ask a couple of different companies. When looking at cheap rubbish bins in Perth, always ask if any extra fees or charges such as bin rental, site fees or environmental fees.

Waste management Perth WA: Waster’s advice on removing junk

As you will probably be aware from seeing the traffic on the roads, there are increasing operators in the junk removal Perth space from the major national waste businesses to smaller operators utilising just one or two trucks.

If you are a hard-working business person, it is vital to save as much money as possible on your rubbish removal services. Otherwise, you will literally be throwing away money.

As mentioned many times, Waster specialises in waste services for small and medium businesses. But, we also help private individuals with their waste needs. Some of the advice we give to people when they call for a quote includes the following:

You generally have to pay for the removal of cardboard or paper in small quantities. Many people call us hoping to get a free cardboard collection, even in small quantities.

Due to the economic environment at the moment (February 2024), the price of cardboard has fallen and free cardboard collection is very rare. It only really is viable if a customer has very large volumes of cardboard โ€“ for example, baled cardboard. Otherwise, a transport charge will have to be charged.

Can you take advantage of your council hard rubbish collection service? Most council areas will offer hard rubbish collection services a couple of times a year. For example, The City of South Perth provides one hard waste and two green waste verge side collections per year.

Items for the green and hard waste verge collection must be placed neatly on the verge by 7 am on the scheduled start date for your area (including public holidays). Also, waste should be put out no earlier than one week before the collection commencement date.


More details on Perth waste management

When we first speak to a potential client of Waster, one of the most common issues we need to address is reliability and trustworthiness in how we deal with customers.

Many customers are suspicious of suppliers (of course this is a good and healthy thing given our legal system of Caveat emptor – or buyer beware). However, once a customer has been hurt in the past by a supplier not delivering on their promise, we find they can be more reluctant to accept sales promises.

Some of the more common queries we hear in Perth waste management customers include:

A. Are you going to tie me into a long term contract?

This can be a big fear for many new customers due to hearing about rollover clauses from rubbish collectors and waste companies – also when a business is starting out, being locked into an expensive contract that may not suit them can be scary.

Waster offers all our services through flexible 30-day agreements. Basically, if the service does not suit you, you can cancel by providing 30 days notice.

Check out all our terms and conditions here for full details.

B. Will my rates for Perth waste management increase a couple of times a year?

The simple answer to this is no.

Waster adjusts rates once a year. Although we have sometimes decreased rates, no one complained for some reason. Our assurance over this is our 30-day terms; If you are unhappy with our service or pricing, simply cancel on 30 days notice.

See all our pricing inclusions here for full details.

C. Are there hidden costs?

The simple and truthful answer is no; we do not charge additional fees such as rental fees, site fees, delivery fees etc. We charge per collection and bill one month in arrears.

For trade waste, check out our details on grease trap Perth.


D. Am I going to have someone to speak to if I need it?

You certainly will. We commit to answering all queries within 24 hours; we also want to provide all customers with modern ticketed support including email, mobile phone, SMS and direct-dial contact.

As a customer service business, we seek to rectify any issues as soon as possible.


A Perth WA waste management scenario: cafe waste removal

In this section, we talk about a scenario that you might experience. Basically, we want to prove to you that we, indeed, “walk the talk” by sharing real customer experiences.

We recently started working with a new cafe opening in Perth CBD. We have a real focus on working with food service businesses such as cafes and restaurants. Essentially, we provide all the services you require from general waste, organic waste services, all recycling systems, grease trap pumping and even sanitary bins for your washrooms.

The new cafe owners (grand opening) had forgotten about arranging waste services until pretty much the last minute โ€“ three days before opening. They had, like many new business owners, assumed that waste and recycling services would be provided by their local council like for residential services.

This is actually a very common issue.


How Waster helped

They searched online and called us on 1300 WASTER. We were able to talk them through the services we would recommend โ€“ starting simple with a 240-litre general waste and commingled service once a week. They had no real view on how much waste they would be producing (or waste removal Perth requirements), so we recommend starting with minimal services and then increasing as you find out volumes, etc.

We always suggest starting with the minimum services to minimise costs and then go from there.

The good news is that we were able to get the bins delivered the next day. Admittedly, this is not always possible. Take a look at our blog on Melbourne rubbish bins, which covers delivery time windows for new customers.

We always tell new customers that the likely lead time on waste removal Perth bin delivery is 7 business days. This is because the site needs to be set up, routed to a truck, a safety inspection performed, etc. The cafe opened on a Saturday and, at least, waste removal services was one less thing for the cafe shop owners in Perth to consider.


Customer-centric approach

We realise how stressful it can be to launch a new business venture and will seek to assist wherever we can. We always tailor our services to your business needs such as wheelie bins for offices, florists or whatever your business is. In this scenario, we really believe in doing the basics first โ€“ seeking to help with driving and recycling first, then reducing waste management costs later.

If you are in the same or similar situation and require waste removal services for your Perth-based business, reach out to us and we will be very excited to help you out!


Waste management Perth WA: talking about Waster, the rubbish collection provider

Waster is not a waste company. The first thing to remember is that Waster does not define itself as a waste company. Instead, we are a customer service company, first and foremost. We always try to put ourselves in the customers’ shoes and remember that what is most important is high service quality for rubbish collection in Perth, reliability, trustworthiness and ease of service.


rubbish collection perth wa


It is for this reason that we use customer pictures in lots of our marketing and branding. It tells customers that we are thinking of them, but also helps our staff remember who our customers are! This is very important, as if customers did not want to buy from us, our business would not exist.

Waster focuses on small and medium customers. Nearly all waste and recycling customers in Australia provide services across the whole range of customers from the smallest business to the largest multi-national. The Waster model for rubbish collection Perth aims to give small businesses the service quality and reliability that they have not previously received.

In many ways, our model is like conglomerating many smaller businesses into one very large national customer, that receives the pricing and service quality equivalent to that obtained by a major corporation with a specialist procurement team.

Waste management Perth WA: getting cost-effective skip bins

We speak to many customers who refer to any large bins as a skip bin. Common bin sizes we offer are more correctly referred to as a front end lift bin or what the Americans would refer to as a dumpster.

See images below from our online ย shop to illustrate the bin size:


Skip bin hire Perth



The key difference between a dumpster/FEL bin and a skip is that the dumpster is not removed from your site when it is emptied; it is simply flipped over the top of the garbage truck to be emptied. The bin is then left on site to be refilled. In this way, the same truck can collect from many bins and sites in a single trip. Thus, this greatly reduces the cost to customers.

A skip bin will usually be taken away to be emptied and the customer will be charged a transport fee (i.e., as a dedicated truck is required), as well as a tonnage disposal fee. This will likely work out much more expensive for you.

If your business requires regular waste disposal services, a dumpster-style service will likely be the best option in both terms of cost, convenience and environmental impact (e.g., reduced transport). Check out our latest blog on which is the best company for commercial rubbish removal in Sydney.


What do you mean by skip bins?

When customers from Perth inquire about skip hire and waste removal, they fall into two categories:

1. Provision of a temporary, open-top bin that will be left at your site. This bin will be then collected a set number of days later i.e. 2-5 days later.

Bins of this type can be used for housing renovations, spring cleaning, garage cleanouts as well as construction jobs, etc. These bins can be in sizes up to greater than 20 cubic metres. The other type is:

2. A large bin for scheduled service in regards to waste management.

This bin can be as large as a skip (i.e., up to 4.5m cubed). These bins are for scheduled regular services for commercial businesses and organisations.


Waster specialises in the second type: reliable commercial waste bin services in Perth

Waster has built its business model on providing online, low cost and extremely high-quality waste management services to small and medium businesses in the greater Perth region.

Our services can be booked with pickups as infrequent as once a month. Basically, you will be provided with a bin size of up to 4.5 cubic metres.

You will be charged no rental fee or site fee as long as the bin is collected on a scheduled service at least once a month.


Innovative idea: blasting waste into space?

In this section of the blog, we steer things into a different route and want to converse about something entirely random.

Now, this might sound a bit crazy, but what if we just sent our waste into space? That way, we lessen waste that goes into landfill. Who knows, this might help not just in Perth WA waste management but the whole world in the near future, right?

This article on the BBC answers that question. We quote from the article below:

“The primary problem is weight. The average person in the UK produces 1.85kg (4lb) of waste per day; in the US, itโ€™s 2.3kg (5lb).

“As Andrew Pontzen of University College London points out, it costs $200m (ยฃ143m) to get the Ariane V rocket into an orbit ready to travel further into space.

“With a payload of approximately 7,000kg, that works out at around $41,000 (ยฃ29,000) per kilogram. A hefty price to pay for a few plastic wrappers and a bottle or two.

“Pontzen reckons that, unless you plan the mission very carefully, youโ€™d need about 10 times more energy for the trip between Earth and the Sunโ€™s surface than youโ€™d already spent getting into orbit.”


A sound conclusion

In conclusion, even though blasting our rubbish into space is scientifically feasible, it most certainly does not meet our objectives of reducing costs and helping the environment. Sustainability should be taken into account before further theorising with this idea.

Furthermore, before we even think about sending waste into space, we must first fix the waste problem here on Earth. From what I can see, this can only create another dilemma instead of finishing one.
