Too much green waste for your garden waste wheelie bin? Let us help

Green waste is defined as ‘garden organics’ — plant matter like leaves, branches, and other off-cuts from your yard.

Green Waste Truck

To dispose of these sorts of things, many local councils across Victoria will supply residents with a green waste wheelie bin. However, if you’re doing lots of work on your garden (or if your council hasn’t given you a green waste bin), you need another way to dispose of all that green waste. That’s where WM Waste can help. Depending on how much green waste you need to get rid of, we can either pick it up with our specially designed removal trucks, or set you up with a green waste bin.

WM Waste have decades of experience helping Victorians with waste removal, from green waste pickup to skip bin hire and hard rubbish collectionContact our friendly team to find a solution today.

How much will green waste removal cost?

The cost of green waste removal can vary based on factors such as the quantity of waste, location, and specific services required. WM Waste provides transparent and competitive pricing based on your individual needs. To obtain an accurate cost estimate for green waste removal, you can contact us with details about the volume and type of green waste you need to remove.

What is appropriate for green waste removal?

Green waste disposal is perfect for excess organic garden matter, like:

  • Grass clippings
  • Branches
  • Garden Pruning
  • Leaves
  • Weeds
  • Hedge trimmings

Can I put food waste in a green bin?

Yes, in a green waste bin, you can typically put certain types of food waste that are plant-based or derived from fruits and vegetables. This may include kitchen scraps like fruit and vegetable peels, coffee grounds, and small amounts of plate scrapings. However, it's crucial to avoid putting meat, dairy, or other animal-based products in a green waste bin, as these materials can lead to odours and attract pests. 

What isn’t appropriate for green waste removal?

However, not everything that you’re removing from your garden is suitable for green waste collection. For example, you can’t use green waste collection to dispose of things like:

  • Plastic plant pots
  • Rocks and bricks
  • Stones and gravel
  • Construction rubble
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Mini Greenhouses

If you need to dispose of inorganic material, we can help with that as well. WM Waste can also collect and remove your hard rubbish If you’re not sure which service you need (or suspect that you might need both) contact us to talk through your rubbish removal.

Why is it important to dispose of green waste separately?

If not disposed of properly, green waste can potentially be harmful to the environment.

  • Less landfill: There is a finite amount of space that can be taken up by landfill. By removing organic matter out from ordinary waste, the total amount of rubbish going into landfill is reduced.
  • Decomposition: Decomposing green waste can emit harmful gasses. Methane, for example, is both a greenhouse gas, and can actually cause fires. Properly disposing of green waste mitigates the harm.
  • Fewer harmful chemicals in the environment: Many agricultural businesses use harmful chemicals to kill weeds and deter pests. When disposed of correctly by WM Waste, your green waste will be turned into mulch and donated to farmers to be used instead of those chemicals.

Contact WM Waste, and we will book in a time to remove your green waste. Plus, if you need a skip, or hard rubbish removal, we can organise that for you as well.
