Type of Waste

Type of waste for our Mini Bins in Adelaide

The identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however it is important because certain waste types are prohibited from being placed in skip bins and also in many cases, the waste type affects the price of skip services. Therefore it is important to correctly specify your intended waste type because placement of other waste types may result in additional disposal charges after the skip is collected. The table below provides some guidelines. If you have any doubt as to which waste type your waste belongs, please feel free to call Minibin and our experienced staff will be happy to assist you.
