Mobile or Wheelie Bins
Wheelie bins (sometimes called rear lift bins, mobile garbage bins or MGB for short) usually come in one of the following sizes 120L, 240L, 660L or 1,100L. They are particularly useful if you need to move them around your property and in order to make them accessible for collection (in urban surroundings, difficult pick up locations, narrow streets, challenging areas etc.)
In most cases, wheelie bins are manoeuvered to the side or rear of the vehicle, where the bin is placed on a hydraulic lifter. In the vehicle body the waste is compacted in order to maximise vehicle utilisation.
Once the truck is fully loaded, the commodities are transported for further treatment at a transfer station, recycling centre or go to landfill for disposal. Some rear-load vehicles are also fitted with scales that can weigh the waste.
Rear-load vehicles are lower in height than many other waste collection vehicles, making wheelie bins a good choice for areas that have height restrictions, such as underground carparks, or areas with overhead power lines.
120L Rear Lift 545mm(L) x 480mm(W) x 930mm(H)
240L Rear Lift 730mm(L) x 585mm(W) x 1060mm(H)
660L Rear Lift 780mm(L) x 1260mm(W) x 1300mm(H)
1,100L Rear Lift 1070mm(L) x 1240mm(W) x 1330mm(H)
Front Lift Bins
Front-lift bins are generally large steel bins that come in 1.5m³, 3m³ and 4.5m³ sizes. Front-lift bins are one of the most cost effective and robust collection systems and commonly used by small businesses where the bins can be emptied without worrying about overhead collisions with wires or other structures.
Front lift collections are performed where the bins are lifted over the front of the vehicle by hydraulic arms that weigh the bin, emptying waste overhead before being compacted within the vehicle body. Once the vehicle is full, it is transported for disposal via a transfer station to a local landfill or directly to a recycling facility.
1.5m3 Front Lift 1100mm(L) x 2060mm(W) x 1200mm(H)
3m3 Front Lift 1100mm(L) x 2060mm(W) x 1550mm(H)
4.5m3 Front Lift 1480mm(L) x 2050mm(W) x 1850mm(H)
Cages mostly used for plastics or cardboard start with smaller sizes of 1m³, 2m³ and 3m³, but go all the way up to 15m³ or 25m³.
1m3 Cage 1.0m(L) x 1.0(W) x 1.0(H)
8m3 Cage 1.7m(L) x 2.4(W) x 1.8(H)
15m3 Cage 3.4m(L) x 2.4m(W) x 1.8m(H)
Skip Bins & Crane Bins
Skips and crane bins are most often seen in sizes from 1.5m³ to 8m³. Often you will also find half sizes anywhere in between the regular sizes.
In any case, skips are lifted onto the rear of the truck by a hydraulic arm and locked into place for transport to a landfill or recycling facility. In most cases the contents of the bin are weighed at the receiving facility. Some vehicles may also be fitted with scales.
2m3 Skip 1.9m(L) x 1.6m(W) x 0.9m(H)
3m3 Skip 2.6m(L) x 1.6m(W) x 0.95m(H)
6m3 Skip 3.7m(L) x 1.6m(W) x 1.3m(H)
8m3 Skip 3.7m(L) x 1.6m(W) x 1.6m(H)
Roll On / Roll Off bins (Hooklift Bins) & Compactors
Hooklift bins are the biggest bins available and are perfect for large household/business clean-ups, or construction site jobs. They usually come in sizes of 10m³, 15m³, 25m³, 30m³ and in rare cases even 40m³.
10m³ Roll On 6.4m(L) x 2.5m(W) x 1.0m(H)
15m³ Roll On 6.0m(L) x 2.5m(W) x 1.4m(H)
25m³ Roll On 6.4m(L) x 2.5m(W) x 2.15m(H)
40m³ Roll On 7.4m(L) x 2.5m(W) x 2.85m(H)
Special Containers and Waste Types
In addition to providing regular bin services, we are also able to provide specialised waste and recycling services. These include liquid wastes removed by vacuum tanker, such as grease trap cleaning, or oily water removal, or the handling of hazardous wastes, chemicals or other difficult waste streams.
If these waste streams are not listed in your search results, please contact us directly and we will get back to you with a solution.
Grease Trap Cleaning
Found in a various sizes, grease traps are used to stop the flow of grease, fats and oils into the waste water network. Regular maintenance is required which includes clearing blockages, removing excess build up, inspection and cleaning.
Septic Tank Cleaning
Septic tanks require periodical emptying depending on size and usage. A service can include clearing blockages, removing contents and inspection.
Other Liquid Services
These can include oily water, interceptors, waste oil, industrial water, holding tanks, portable toilets and other regulated waste streams. Small or large volumes, contact us today to discuss your requirements.
