Advantages of 4 Waste Removals Green Waste Bins over Council Green Waste Bins

When it comes to green waste removal in Brisbane, there are many service providers to choose from. With most services offering proper disposal of green waste, you can always ensure that your waste is treated properly. But how do you go about choosing the best waste removal service? Well, I’m here to help you out! I will touch-up on two of the most used rubbish removal services in Brisbane – the Brisbane City Council’s service and our very own service here at 4 Waste.

The Brisbane City Council green waste recycling service allows you to get rid of your garden waste throughout the year. By opting for this service, a green waste bin will be placed in your residential location. All you need to do is to fill up the bin with your garden waste and it will be removed from your premises fortnightly.

At 4 Waste Removals, we also offer a garden waste collection service. Similar to the Council’s green waste bin, we offer garden bags, which will be delivered to your location in Brisbane or the Gold Coast. You can choose the frequency of rubbish removal from your premises and our experts will get rid of all your garden waste for you.

While both these services are quite similar, our green waste removal services have some definite advantages over the Council’s service. As the owner of 4 Waste Removals, I will take this opportunity to compare the two green bin services and show you just why you should choose our service over the Councils.

1. Our Green Waste Bins Are Bigger in Size

Our graden bin compared to a standard garden bin

As compared to council waste bins, 4 Waste Garden Bins are approximately two and a half times larger. Therefore, even if you have large amounts of garden waste, you can easily fit all your waste into our green waste bin. If you choose to use a council bin, you will have to chop up all your garden waste to get it to fit into the bin. Not only does this mean added effort on your part, but you will also need to accurately estimate the amount of waste you have. To avoid these hassles, you can simply opt for our garden bins as the need may be.

2. Our Green Waste Bins offer Flexible Collection cycle

At 4 Waste, we offer a much more flexible rubbish collection cycle as compared to Brisbane City Council bins. With our service, you can choose a rubbish collection cycle that is suitable for your personal needs. We offer collection every week or every 2, 4 or 8 weeks. You can also choose to change this frequency by the season after assessing your requirements. We also offer a one-off rubbish collection service, which is available for just $60. On the other hand, Brisbane City Council offers a strict fortnightly rubbish collection cycle. This flexibility that we offer is something that you will definitely appreciate.

3.Our Green Waste Bins Are Cost-Effective

When it comes to cost, at 4 Waste we offer our service at $24 per rubbish collection, while the Council costs for rubbish collection are $19.09 per quarter. At first glance, the Council rates may seem to be cheaper, but there is a catch to this. When you choose Brisbane City Council bins, you must commit to the fortnightly rubbish collection service for at least 12 months. Also, there is an establishment fee of $30 which you need to pay. With 4 Waste Removals, there are no such added costs. You can choose the frequency of collection for our regular service and every time the rubbish is collected from our green waste bin, you need to pay a fixed rate. Alternatively, we also offer green skip bins for larger waste removal, which starts at $275 for a 7-day hire. While our service rates are competitive, given that our green waste bin is much larger than Council bins, 4 Waste services definitely have a cost advantage over the Council.


Of the two most used green waste removal services in Brisbane – the Council green waste bins and 4 Waste green waste bins, our services here at 4 Waste Removals offer you many more advantages. First of all, our green bins are much larger than those of the Council’s, meaning that you can even get rid of large volumes of waste with ease. As opposed to the Council’s strict collection cycle, we offer a flexible collection cycle to suit your needs. Finally, when it comes to cost, our services have a definite cost advantage over the Council’s bin service.

To hire our garden bags or bin service, simply give me a call at 07 3343 3030, or book your bin online. We offer same-day delivery and our flexible service will definitely suit your personal requirements.
