Safety is a top priority for Super Clean Bins and is a shared responsibility that starts right at your Wheelie Bin or Commercial Bin. A properly filled, maintained and serviced garbage bin is crucial in keeping our customers and our employees free from harm. To that end, we would like to share with you some best practices in proper waste disposal to help you maintain a waste area that is functional and safe for both you and our wheelie bin cleaners.

These tips provide a few helpful suggestions on proper waste disposal such as: reducing container odor, keeping your waste area clean, and disposing of bulky items.

Loading Container: When loading your container, please ensure that your container lid can fully close.  If your rubbish is unable to fit in the wheelie bin with the lid fully closed, most of Perth’s Council’s are not obliged to empty it.  Keep in mind that if your trash volumes do change, you can adjust your service by increasing your wheelie bin size up to 360litre or collection frequency (use of private company).  Remember, a quick service adjustment will allow you to keep up with your growing demands as well as help you avoid additional fees caused by container overflow or spilled rubbish in the waste area.

Reduce Odor:  To help reduce odor around your waste area, remember to tightly bag your domestic rubbish before placing it in your wheelie bin.  This will help to reduce bacteria build up and odor caused by spilled garbage.  This simple solution keeps Perth noticeably nicer in the hotter months!

Keep it clean:  Super Clean Bins is Perths Premier Wheelie Bin Cleaner so with regular cleaning of your container and the waste area surrounding the container will help to keep the waste area clean for easy access, reduce odor and minimize insects.

Cleaning your garage or shed:  When cleaning out your garage or shed, please keep in mind that the following items are not apart of your normal waste collection pick up and should not be placed in your container: paint, paint thinners,oil, oil filters, oil rags and insecticides.

In addition, the following items require special handling and may not be placed in your waste or recycling containers:

  • Appliances, batteries, chemical products, construction debris, electronics, flammables, hazardous waste, pesticides, liquids and  tyres.

If you need to dispose of paint, oil, oil filters or insecticides or any items that require special handling, please contact your local council for up to the minute guidance on what needs to be done.

Bulky items:  Do you have bulky items that you need to dispose of?  If so, please keep in mind that bulky items can not be placed in your container and require special handling.  Check on your local Perth Council website for date of your suburbs Bulk Collection.

Recycling tips:  Store your Wheelie Bins in the garage or outside preferably in a shaded area.  Where possible, place your garbage bin on one side of your driveway and place your recycling on the opposite side.  A minimum gap of a metre with no overhead obstructions is needed to help the garbage truck operators work safely.

Construction and Renovation Materials:  Are you renovating or building a new home or building?  If so, please keep in mind that construction and renovation materials such as shingles, tiles, insulation, brick, large amounts of wood require special handling.

Safety Tips for your waste area:  To ensure the safety of all, please maintain clear and safe access to your container.  In addition, place your container in an open or well-lit area and ensure that the overhead clearance is a minimum of 14 feet in height.

How to avoid delays in service:To prevent delays in your waste collection service, please ensure vehicles are not parked in front or on the side of your container.  In addition, make sure gates or access to your containers are unlocked for service.
