General waste solutions for small to medium sized businesses
Rear Lift services in mobile garbage bins (MGB) 240lt-1100lt are perfectly suited for small volumes of waste that can be cleared more frequently, where access is limited and a smaller bin and collection service is required ‒ city locations and back laneways, for example.
Suitable Industries include restaurants, cafes, hotels, offices, medical centres, retail spaces and workshops as they are compact and take up less space on site. As they are plastic, mobile garbage bins are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, easy to clean and can be used both inside and outside your business’s premises.
Large volume general waste services
For larger customers who produce larger commercial and industrial waste volumes with space onsite for larger containers, we have a range of front lift services with equipment ranging 1.5 – 4.5 meters. .
Holding larger waste volumes onsite longer between collections, front lift services are a cost-effective and flexible waste solution for customers. Depending on how you use the equipment, front lift bins can be fitted with wheels, brakes, padlocks and chains.
Bulk general waste collections
For large bulk volumes of waste on a permanent or ad-hoc basis Wanless can provide customers with hook lift bins varying from 12-31 cubic meters to assist in the disposal of landfill and production wastes. These include specialized equipment like compactors for various industries including transport and logistics, shopping centres, hospitals, manufacturing and warehouses.
Storing larger volumes onsite can effectively reduce transport movements, increasing site safety and reducing your company’s carbon footprint. Compactors are easier to load, absorb odour and reduce pest control issues to the site as waste is securely contained.
Bulk bins sizes ranging from 12 – 31m3

Did you know that the correct loading of all bins is to water level? We ask you don’t over load bins as it can cause unnecessary litter and can attract pests.
In Australia some states tax landfill with a levy to encourage households and businesses to recycle, providing funds back into the community for recycling education and facilities.
