Why Green Bins In Brisbane Are A Must-Have!

Great gardens are a thing of beauty.

Whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, there is a good reason to invest time into your garden – and I’m not just saying that because we are one of the largest companies for green bins in Brisbane.

Not only do gardens make your home more attractive increasing the curb appeal of your home, but it has been proven that a great garden and the act of gardening can also offer many health benefits. And while these are reason enough to want to get into the garden, there’s always a downside, and with gardening, it how to get rid of surplus garden waste. Green bins are a simple solution.

There are various types of green bins in Brisbane, but at 4 Waste Removals, we offer Garden Skip Bins and Garden Bags & Bins – you’re sure to find the perfect solution for your garden waste needs. To arrange a green bin for your property, contact us today.

They are good for the environment

Whether you make a conscious effort to be environmentally-friendly or not, by hiring green bins in Brisbane, you are making a huge contribution to reducing landfill waste – and that’s a very good thing.

When green waste, such as that from a garden, ends up in landfill, it forgoes the composting process and remains untreated, filling up our precious landfill space. Not only is it filling up our landfills, but when untreated, it produces methane gas which is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide and contributes to global warming.

It may be surprising to hear, but in Australia, 47% of waste that goes into landfill is organic waste which could have been recycled.

By hiring green bins in Brisbane, you’re reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill, reducing the air pollution and helping to lower global warming.

They make gardening more enjoyable

Now that you’ll feel good about helping the environment, you’ll really feel good about gardening and that’s because you don’t have the dread of wondering how you’ll get rid of all your garden waste.

I have many customers that have paid for one of the council’s green bins only to find that they just aren’t big enough. If you’re planning to spend the day in the garden and have quite a lot of trimming to do, chances are you will produce a lot more green waste than what the contents of the council’s green bin will hold. In such cases, these customers were having to fit what they could in the bin and then wait a fortnight for the next collection and so on until they were able to dispose of all their waste.

Not only is this annoying, but the unsightly appearance of a huge pile of green waste goes against what you’re trying to achieve in neatening up the garden.

What’s important to know is that the council’s green bins are not the only green bins in Brisbane! At 4 Waste, we offer garden bags, garden bins (2.5 times larger than the council’s green bins) and garden skip bins (2-6 cubic metre). So, regardless of how much green waste you have to get rid of, you’re sure to get rid of it in the one go with our services.


Whether you’re a homeowner or renting, there is a good reason to spend time in the garden. While working out how to get rid of surplus garden waste may have been an issue in the past, it won’t be in the future if you use green bins. Green bins are not only good for the environment but they will also make gardening more enjoyable.
