Glen Eira bins for homes and businesses
If you live in any of the suburbs within Glen Eira City Council, you can book up to three free hard waste collections per financial year. The council will only take up to 4 cubic metres of rubbish per collection, however, and there are restrictions around heights and lengths of single items.
If you need to get rid of more than the allocated amount in the council’s guidelines, contact WM Waste Management Services. We have a wide range of skip bins for hire, from as little as 2 cubic metres ranging up to 23 cubic metre walk-in bins.
We’ve been working with Victoria’s south-eastern council districts for decades. We hold skip bin permits compliant with regulations, and we can help you apply for your own permit if you need to place your bin on public land.

What’s the difference between a skip bin and a walk-in bin?
Our skip bins are smaller at the bottom, and larger at the top. They come in 2, 3, and 4 cubic metres.
Meanwhile, our walk-in bins open up at the back, with hook lift or roller doors, so you can walk in to place your rubbish. They range in size from 4 cubic metres right up to 23 cubic metres.
