New Customer Bin Delays

Due to the overwhelming demand for our Free Return and Earn Wheelie Bins (affectionately known as Blue Bins) there are considerable delays in being able to provide these bins. At the time of writing (22 Jan 2019) we have a backlog of over 1700 applications. The cost of the bins limits our ability to source more than 350 bins per month. As it stands any new customer applications may not receive a new bin for up to 6 months from date of application. We do apologise for the inconvenience however we still offer a Free Collection Service by way of our One Off Collection Service. Simply fill out the new customer application then head over to the booking area and fill out your booking request for a one off collection.

Blue Bin Signup and Collection

Our Blue Bin service is completely Free. However there is a long wait for our free blue bins of approximately 6 months from date of signup. For those customers willing to pay a fee, we have recently introduced a premium delivery fee of $59.00 to fast track deliver of your blue bin to within 14  days of applying.

You DO NOT need to pay to sign up, a blue bin will be allocated to when one becomes available. While waiting for your FREE blue bin, we still offer free collection of bagged containers via our ‘One Off Collection Service. Simply have 3-5 large garbage bags of containers and book a collection online.

Locked Bins Now Available

We now have locked bins available. These bins have Green lids and have a small chain and a padlock. The padlocks are all keyed alike. What this means is we can do the bin exchange with ease. Once you book your green bin in for collection, simply have your bin locked and ready. Our driver will attend your property and swap with a clean empty locked bin. You key will open the new bin.

Locked Bin Charges-

There are a number of charges associated with having our locked bins. The charges are as follows-

  • Bin Rental is $1 per week. This will come out of any future collections. For example, if it takes 4 weeks from bin delivery to your first collection, you will receive your refund for your containers minus $4. This will be an itemised line on your refund receipt
  • Lost Key Replacement $10
  • Lost Padlock $20

All charges are inclusive of GST and will be taken from any amount we owe you for any containers collected.

Want to fast track delivery of your Blue Bin?

The current wait times for our FREE bins are 6 months.
An option we now have available is for the customer to pay a premium delivery fee of $59.00 incl GST per bin

What this fee does is immediately secures you a bin and also moves you up the list to the next available delivery date (Usually within 7-14 days).
If within 30 days of receiving your bin you decide that our bin service is not for you, let us know and we will cancel the service, collect our bin and refund your $59 fee plus the value of any containers in the bin at the time of collecting the bin. However you will only receive a refund of your fee if you cancel within 30 days of receiving your bin.

The rest of the service operates as normal ie - there is no preferential or premium service offered for collections because you paid a premium delivery fee for your bin. The fee paid is only to secure a bin earlier than the current wait time of up to 6 months for the FREE option

Paying the $59 fee is not a requirement for our free bin service however it will get you your bin faster.
