Flexibin vs steel skip bin

With our skip bins you can have your bin placed up your drive closer to your house or where you want the rubbish removed from.  If you used a Flexibin you have to place the bag within 4 metres of the street kerbside.  This is not ideal if you have a right of way or want the bin up your drive.

With our skips there is a heigh restriction of 4 metres.  With a Flexibin the height restriction ins 9 metres as the Flexibin is craned onto a truck (remember the crane that toppled onto the house on the 28th November 2014 on the Northshore).

With our skip bins they are used over and over again,  Are Flexibins enviromentally friendly going straight to landfill?  How long do they take to break down?

 

 

Waste Levy 

As from the 1st July 2009 the government have introduced a National Waste Levy as part of the government's Waste Minimisation Act 2008. This Levy applies to all general waste and is an incentive to promote minimisation of waste to landfill. No one is exempt. Bins Online have included this levy into the price of all our bins.
