Asked Questions

Do I need a clean fill bin or waste bin?

You need a regular waste bin If you’re getting rid of general mixed waste, construction debris, items from an estate clean-up, furniture, brush or trees. If you’re disposing of reusable, uncontaminated materials such as soil, asphalt, and brick, block, or concrete, then you need a clean fill bin. Learn more about the types of items that we accept, and those we don’t.

What is a metric tonne?

1 metric tonne is equal to 1,000 kilos or 2,200 pounds.

How big are the bins?

14 YARD BIN – 12.5 feet long x 8 feet wide x 4 feet tall

20 YARD BIN – 20 feet long x 8 feet wide x 4 feet tall

40 YARD BIN – 20 feet long x 8 feet wide x 8 feet tall

Will the bin damage my property?

To protect your property we will place our bins on a wood base. However, we are not responsible for any damages and suggest you put down a few sheets of plywood to prevent the bin from sinking into the ground.

How much can I fit in a bin?

Various items may be challenging to lift over the top of a bin. This is why we always suggest opening the bin doors and walking in your waste. Start with the bigger items and fill in the gaps later with the smaller pieces. For safety reasons, we ask that items do not stick out over the top of the bin.

What happens if a bin is too full?

We cannot legally transport a bin that has been overloaded. It is dangerous and could cause injury to the public and our drivers. You will be required to remove items sticking out over the top of the bin prior to removal from your premises.

What if the material falls out as the bin is being lifted?

This only happens when the bin is overloaded. We are not responsible for the waste that falls out of the bin. Please ensure you order a bin that is best suited to your needs and does not overload the container.

How much will I be billed?

Assuming you’ve followed the outlined terms, your invoice will be the same as our advertised price plus applicable taxes. We take deposits for orders placed by telephone and will bill your card accordingly once the bin has been weighed and dumped.

How much space do I need?

Please refer to the bin sizes listed above and ensure there is at least double that space. Remember to ensure there are no low-hanging wires in the area for the bin to be dropped.

Can the bin go on my lawn?

We can place the bin on your lawn, but remember full bins can weigh in excess of 10 metric tonnes. That’s a lot of weight so please ensure you use plywood to prevent the bin from sinking into your lawn.

Can we throw out trees & shrubs?

Yes. Trees and shrubs are considered mixed waste and can be thrown into any size bin.

Can I fill a 40-yard bin with dirt?

No. Clean fill material such as dirt, brick, concrete, stone, and asphalt are very heavy and can only be placed into a 14-yard bin. Please do not fill larger bins with these materials because we legally cannot transport that amount of weight.

Can the bin be placed on the street?

We can only place the bin on the street if you have a valid permit issued by your municipality and it is received by our dispatch office prior to delivery. We suggest you contact your municipality for clarification. If you cannot secure and show proof of this permit ahead of delivery, then we will not be able to place your bin rental on the street.

Do I need to be home for the delivery?

No, you don’t. We will deliver the bin on the day you’ve requested it, however, we do ask that you leave specific instructions when placing your order and ensure your driveway is clear to allow the driver to safely deliver the bin.

For example: indicate, when facing the home, which side of the driveway you would like the bin.

How do I receive a refund and invoice?

Once your order has been placed you will receive notification via email. Invoicing is completed after the bin has been picked up and weighed. Please allow for a minimum of 10 business days for us to process the final invoice. If you’ve ordered a bin via telephone please allow 10 days for refunds to appear on your credit card. If you have questions or concerns please contact our office. You will receive a final copy of your invoice in the mail.
