Bulk bin collections & compactors

Wanless operates a large fleet of bulk bin collection vehicles across its Australian operations, providing our customers with a range of reliable service solutions for commercial and industrial waste. With safety at the forefront of everything we do, hook-lift services are ideal for businesses of any size who seek:

  • To remove larger volumes of waste and recycling
  • A regular scheduled service or more flexible service options, your business is in control
  • To compact waste or recycling into specialised equipment due to high volumes
  • Multiple services or bins onsite for more bulky items like timber, steel, recycling bales or electronic waste
  • An ad hoc clean up of hard rubbish from their premises

Bulk bin and compactor collections are performed where the bin is lifted onto the rear of the truck by a “hydraulic hook” and locked into place for transport for disposal at a local landfill or recycling facility where it is weighed for charging. All Wanless Vehicles are connected to our Wanless Integrated Vehicle System, which includes scales for weighing our collections. Real time location data lets us know where our vehicles are, so we can optimise service delivery and performance and can easily react to customer demands – especially in an emergency where you may need an additional collection.

All Wanless vehicles are fitted with reversing lights, cameras and beepers so we can perform our collections safely, with lights and sounds creating awareness of our vehicle to those in close proximity as YOUR safety is OUR safety.

At Wanless the safety of our customers and employees when handling our equipment is our highest priority that’s why we ask you take note of the following at all times:

  • Don’t overload bins, keep all waste level as we cannot safely tarp and transport bins
  • Place heavier items on top to ensure waste or recycling doesn’t blow away when bins are onsite
  • Be aware of servicing vehicles and other bins onsite
  • No liquids, aerosols, flammables, asbestos or hazardous wastes are accepted – we can provide a specialist service for those wastes

ALL Wanless bins have safety stickers and a Wanless representative is happy to call out to your business should you have any questions around safety and our services, as YOUR safety is OUR safety.

Bin cleaning

We understand that maintaining your back of house or external docks to a high level of presentation and hygiene is important as those parts of your may be visible to the public or part of a certification where hygiene standards are regulated – as well as providing wellbeing to those using the bins within your facility. So that standards can be upheld (reducing offensive odours, pests and discomfort for your staff), Wanless offers scheduled or unscheduled bin and compactor cleaning as part of The Wanless Total Waste Management Solution.

So that standards can be upheld reducing offensive odours, pests and discomfort by end users Wanless offers its customers scheduled or unscheduled bin and compactor cleaning as part of The Wanless Total Waste Management Solution.

To ensure Wanless bins are maintained to hygiene standards, they are cleaned inside and out with a citrus based degreaser and rinsed and sanitised with an odour control spray to assist with odour control long after the service. As Wanless is concerned with protecting the environment, we partner with bin cleaning companies in each state through our integrated services model, taking into consideration chemical and water usage whether cleaning is conducted on the client’s premises or in our own depots.

Wanless can offer bin cleaning for rear lift, front lift, hook lift and compactors. All prices are on application​
