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.

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.
