Q: What happens to the material you collect in the bin?

A: We are affiliated with Kingston Waste Transfer Station so all bins are taken there for sorting and recycling. Some materials that are deemed non-recyclable will ultimately end up as landfill. Rhino Bins is committed to a sustainable future by constantly reviewing and implementing new practices and processes that result in reducing landfill and its environmental impact.

Q: What happens if asbestos is found in my bin?

A: Large penalties and fees will apply to anyone placing asbestos in our bins. This also applies when tipping waste at Kingston Waste Transfer Station. We have 24 hour monitored security cameras operating to assist with identification of the offending vehicle.

Q: Do I need a permit?

A: If your bin is on your property, then generally you will not need a permit. However if your bin is on the nature strip or roadway then most councils will require a permit. Permit costs vary from council to council and can be organized by our friendly staff.

Q: Can you supply Recycle Certificates?

A: Yes we can via our Recycling Plant at Kingston Waste Transfer Station. Your loads are monitored for weight and content and a certificate can be issued stating what you have brought in for recycling.
We can monitor specific materials if you put in dedicated bins at your site, say exclusively for dirt or wood etc.

Q: Can I set up an account?

A: Yes we do offer accounts to customers. Just contact our staff and we will send you an account application.

Q: Do you have waste management contracts?

A: Yes we provide contract waste removal on an ongoing basis for commercial organizations such as Factories, Warehouse, Offices, Sporting Clubs, Government Departments, Building Managers, Building Contractors, Shops and Shopping Centres throughout Melbourne and the metropolitan regions.

Q: How do I measure a cubic metre?

A: Simply measure the length of the pile of rubbish x the height of the pile of rubbish x the width of the pile of rubbish. Or, if you can imagine how much space the average family car takes up and fitting all your rubbish into this space then you would have about 6-7 cubic metres.

Q: Do you recycle?

A: Yes, wherever possible. Some materials however, reach their end of cycle and unfortunately cannot be recycled at present. For example, timber laminate with glue. At present, some examples of the items we recycle include timbers, steel, cardboard, plastic and polystyrene, rubber, fabric, green waste, bricks, concrete and soil.
