We remain committed to offering quality same day service and competitive rates.

If you intend to place a bin on your private property (anywhere behind your gate or fence), there is no need to apply for a council permit. However, if the bin will be positioned on public property, including but not limited to a footpath, street, driveway, nature strip, parking lot, or park; a council permit may be required. Please contact the council directly. It’s important to note that we hold annual permits for the City of Randwick, Inner West, & Woollahra Council. Consequently, there is no need to incur the cost of a permit in these jurisdictions. However, it is imperative that you inform the council about your intentions

Follow these steps to effectively cover your bin with a tarp:

  1. Measure: Choose the bin you wish to Book with us and note down the dimensions for that bin. This will help you select the right-sized tarp accordingly.
  2. Position the Tarp: After the bin has been delivered, lay the tarp flat on the ground, positioning it side-by-side with the bin.
  3. Cover the Bin: Pull the tarp up and over the bin, ensuring it completely covers the top and sides.
  4. Secure the Tarp: Use bungee cords, ropes, or strong clips to secure the tarp around the bin tightly. Ensure it is fastened securely to prevent wind from blowing it off.
  5. Check Stability: Confirm that the tarp is firmly in place and that it adequately covers the bin to discourage any unauthorised dumping.

By following these steps, you can effectively utilise a tarp to cover your bin and prevent unwanted deposits from neighbours.

No, the bin doesn’t include a cover designed specifically for this purpose. However, a helpful solution involves purchasing a tarpaulin, commonly known as a tarp (available in poly or vinyl), from stores like Bunnings Warehouse, Mitre 10, or Supercheap Auto. This tarp can effectively cover the bin and discourage any unwelcome dumping by neighbours.

We do not feature doors on our bins. However, specific bin sizes, ranging from 4 Marrell to 14 Marrell (https://purplecowindustries.com.au/bin-sizes/), are designed with wheelbarrow access. These bins have a lowered edge or a designated area, making it easier to use a wheelbarrow for disposing of materials. This design is especially helpful for handling gardening or construction waste efficiently. For more details on our product specifications please contact our office.

The bin sizes provided are approximate and may vary slightly from bin to bin. Our measurement represent external dimensions. If you have additional questions or need further clarification, please feel free to contact us.
