Mattress Recycling



Mattresses often incur high additional costs at waste facilities on top of the hired bin costs. A better disposal method instead of placing it in a skip bin is to recycle your mattress through Soft Landing for a minimal fee.  They are a mattress recycling and refurbishment social enterprise operated by Mission Australia.

Soft Landing can pick up your mattress – Phone 1800 SOFT LANDING (1800 763 852) to arrange a collection. Fees apply

Alternatively you can drop the mattress off at one of their collection points

Best Price For General Light Waste



All general waste skip bins, have a weight limit 150kg per cubic metre, what does this mean to our customers that are willing to do the right thing, they pay less for their skip bin hire.

All skip bins have strict restriction on what waste, is acceptable and what waste is not. Incorrect waste, placed in any skip will incur an additional charge. However, the difference with a general waste skip is the price, see with a general waste skip it is according to the weight limit of the skip. This is to make sure when you make the right choice you pay less and only if you should exceed the weight limit are you charged extra.

Skip Bins Online recommends you take the time to go over the below, so that you completely understand what is classified as general rubbish.

When choosing a general waste skip bin please consider the following:

The general waste skip bin is used for just that general waste, things that are in your home or office on day to day bases, such as electrical goods, white goods, cupboards, unwanted personal objects, furniture, toys, books, office furniture, light building waste such as dry timber, and light green foliage such as grass clippings. Everyday items,  those things we all collect that either need replacing or updating that have accumulated over time that just need be sorted, trimmed & cleared out.

What should not to be placed in a general waste skip, are things like bricks, soil, concrete, carpet, pebbles, tiles, sandstone, heavy renovation waste, heavy landscape waste, tree trunks. All of these items are classified as heavy waste.

Should you require a skip for heavy materials you will find a skip bin to suit your waste disposal needs with Skip Bins Online but these items are definitely not suited for a general waste skip, if you wish to stay within your weight limit.

In summary the general waste bin, to hire is one of the cheapest waste type bins, if you follow Skip Bins Online strict guidelines for this waste category and never fill the bin above the rim, than you should not pay more for your skip. If you do exceed your weight limit the skip bin provider will supply you with a copy of your tip docket and you will be charge the amount that is.

Ignoring these directions though, will result in you being required to pay more. Remembering you have entered into an agreement to pay any additional tip fees should any be required direct to the skip bin provider who supplied your skip bin. The extra weight charges can be seen upon your quote and again repeated on your confirmation email, also again on the same email you will be reminded of what can and cannot go in your general waste skip bin. STRICTLY NO HARZARDOUS WASTE.

From a waste facility prospective this bin when used for general waste only, becomes a bin that is easily sorted and recycled, minimizing landfill waste and resulting in an Environmentally Friendly Option

Please let us all do the right thing when it comes to waste disposal in Australia for future generations.
