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.
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 height restriction of 4 metres. With a Flexibin the height restriction is 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 North Shore).
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?
Flexibins often have hidden costs – the purchase cost is low but doesn’t include the cost of pickup which you don’t find out about until after you’ve purchased them.
We will try and divert any recyclable material out of landfills where possible – Flexibins usually go straight to the landfill.
At Trash Control we are passionate about preserving our environment. We recycle your rubbish as much as possible. This plays a significant role in saving landfill space and achieving a cleaner greener New Zealand. How can you help? Let the driver know when delivering your bin what items you are disposing of so we can recycle as much as we can.
Wednesday Special – Skip bin is delivered on the Wednesday and Picked up on the Monday. Not available from the 19th December to 5th January.
