While green waste removal is something that
everybody needs to deal with, many people aren’t exactly aware of its process. Green waste refers to 100%
organic waste that is obtained from
gardens. Because green waste is recyclable, you must take care not to dump green waste around carelessly. Rather,
you should always engage in proper removal of green waste to prevent the loss
of a valuable resource.
Today, I will answer
the four most searched questions about
green waste removal. Hopefully, this article will help clear any doubts you
have about the waste removal process.
1. What can you put in a green waste bin?
Green waste bins
provided by the council and local waste removal companies are strictly meant for green waste removal. You
can put only 100% green waste into these bins. Any other type of waste dumped
into these bins will not be collected.
The green waste that is permitted in green waste bins includes lawn
clippings, vegetable and fruit scraps, dead leaves, twigs and small branches,
tree stumps, palm fronds, woodchip, bark and other types of garden waste. Make
sure not to dump any soil into green waste bins.
2. How much does a green waste bin cost?
When it comes to hiring
a green waste bin in Brisbane, you can
choose to go with council green bins or hire one from a green waste removal
With council green
bins, you need to make a minimum commitment of 12 months. The cost of hiring a
bin includes a one-time establishment fee of $30 and a quarterly charge of $20.98.
On the other hand,
green waste removal companies like us are much more flexible with our service. You
can hire a garden bag or garden bin – which are much larger than a council bin –
on a quarterly, bi-monthly, monthly and even on a one-off basis. There are no
establishment fees, and our rate is $20
3. Is green waste free to dump?
While you cannot dump
green waste anywhere, there are certain free disposal options available. For
instance, you can collect your green waste and take it to your nearest green
waste recycling facility. Most recycling facilities offer unlimited green waste
disposal all year round.
Taking your waste to a
recycling facility may seem like a good idea but do bear in mind that you’ll
need to collect your waste, arrange for transportation and drive to the
facility and back. You’ll be spending a lot of time and money in the process. A
much better alternative is to hire green waste bins
from 4 Waste Removals and let us take care of your green waste disposal.
4. What is the green
Green waste disposal
refers to the proper method of removing green waste. While green waste is
completely biodegradable, it should not be
disposed of on with other types of waste. Not only does this lead to the
loss of valuable recyclable resources, but it is also harmful to the
environment. On the other hand, green recycling
waste can help create compost, which is then
used in landscaping and agriculture.
Always engage in proper
green waste disposal. The best way to do so is by hiring our garden bag service.

collection cycles. Moreover, if you’re
