Have you ever asked the question – what happens to my waste once it’s placed in a skip bin? Is your skip bin provider environmentally aware? Are they green conscious & do they recycle your waste?
We have our own recycling depot where all skip bins are taken for sorting before we even consider landfill.
Where possible, we need to seek alternate uses for recycled materials & encourage their use & acceptance in the marketplace.
CCA treated timber, painted timber, hazardous goods (please view FAQ page), carpet, carpet underlay, co-mingled waste – contaminated with dirt or greens so that they are not accepted by a recycling processor, for example: chicken wire with vines (greens) wrapped throughout it or cardboard & plastic that has had dirt dumped on top of it
E waste, PVC (above ground pool liners & cable insulation), UPVC (white reticulation & plumbing pipe or orange electrical conduit), Gyprock & plaster glass, textiles such as old clothes, some types of glass such as laminated or wire reinforced such as shower screens.
