Green waste can accumulate in your property or garden, particularly if you are doing any clearing or maintenance on your property. But what should you do with all that green waste?

Disposing of green waste correctly is the most environmentally friendly way and much easier than trying to fit it in your council rubbish bin and letting it end up in landfill. A professional garden rubbish removal service will collect and dispose of your green waste and will be able to make sure it is recycled properly. 

Whether it’s branches, grass clippings, or weeds, we can remove your green waste, making the process easy and labour-free for you. So now you may be wondering how much should green waste removal cost? But first, let’s look at what green waste actually is. 

What is Green Waste?

Green waste generally refers to organic garden matter that can be composted. It is sometimes called biological waste, and can generally be composted or recycled at council resource recovery centres. 

It is mostly composed of waste from gardens like grass clippings, shrub clippings, branches, wood chips and bark, wood, palm trees and branches, as well as weeds. The benefit of disposing of green waste properly is that it can be recycled and composted to maintain soil nutrient cycling, rather than mixing with other waste in landfill.  

How Much Should Green Waste Removal Cost?

The cost of green waste removal can vary depending on the method and service provider you go with. Most green waste removals are priced by the amount (in either space or weight) of waste you have. 

Removing green waste is generally more cost effective than removing general household waste. For example, our skip bin pricing for green waste is about 30% cheaper than for household waste, and can cost as little as $185.

If you don’t want to fill a skip bin yourself, there is also the option to get a hands-on rubbish removal. A hands-on removal service will collect, load, and dispose of rubbish for you, without you needing to lift a finger. 

You might choose a hands-on removal service for any number of reasons, say if you have heavy green waste items that you can’t lift, or you don’t have time to load the green waste yourself, or you don’t have room for a skip bin to be left on your property. The beauty of a removal service is that all the work will be done for you. 

The pricing for a hands-on removal service changes depending on the load amount, essentially how much space it takes up in our removal truck. For example, a load that takes up 25% of the truck can cost as little as $149.

The Benefits of Skip Bins

You might choose a skip bin for your green waste removal if you want to slowly fill it, say if you’re in the process of clearing your garden or construction. A skip bin allows you to fill it at your own pace, so that you can properly sort through your garden waste. 

Green waste skip bins are also only charged by the volume by the volume of rubbish being taken away. Our bins for example are 7 cubic metres in volume, so if you only fill up to the 3, 4, 5, or 6 cubic metres level, that is all you will pay for. 

Skip bins are durable and suitable for holding large amounts of green and household waste. So you don’t have to worry if you have a large amount of heavy green waste to dispose of. 

You can hire skips for up to a week, so that you can take your time and don’t have to worry about working quickly and missing anything for removal.  

If you’re on a tight budget, a skip bin is also a great solution, as it gives you a great bang for your buck compared to traditional bins. Our load and go prices will give you a better idea of how cost effective it can be.

And lastly, skip bins can be located anywhere, so you don’t have to worry about fitting it in somewhere on your property. They are even on wheels and can be placed in your garage or under the carport, making them space efficient and easy to access.
