What’s your construction site waste management plan?
In a city that is constantly under development, Sydney’s construction sites must practice waste management lawfully in order to ensure that Sydney is kept clean and safe. Waste isn’t just rubbish and unwanted site materials. Waste also includes excavated material such as dirt, sandstone and soil; construction, building and demolition waste such as asphalt, bricks, concrete, plasterboard, timber and vegetation; asbestos and contaminated soil.
The Bingo Bins is one of Sydney’s best waste management solution services for construction sites, providing two distinct services as part of its business: the first, a commercial waste service that includes paper & cardboard and general waste (which includes things like food scraps). The second is skip bin services, which covers mostly builder’s waste materials – this can include most waste materials though except for asbestos, fibro, food and liquid wastes. These waste management solutions are provided for customers in the CBD, west Sydney (up to just past Penrith), north Sydney (Avalon) and south Sydney (to Campbelltown).
In order to fulfil our services, Bingo Bins uses two types of collection systems to suit particular situations:
- Front Lift System Trucks: For bigger metal commercial waste bins – these get used for either Paper & Cardboard or General Waste. These are best for bigger bins and the trucks require easy access to the site and plenty of room for the forks of the truck to pick up the bin and lift it to the top of the truck to be emptied.
- Rear Lift Trucks: These are used for the medium to small plastic bins for waste such Paper & Cardboard, General Waste or Co-Mingled Recycling (which includes paper, cardboard, plastics, aluminium cans, glass bottles). The rear lift is used for tight fit places such as small street alleyways and back laneways as bins are wheeled to the back of the truck.
Once the waste is collected from the commercial site, it is taken to one of Bingo Bins’ recycling centres and stockpiled to be recycled. At Bingo, we have a dedication to environmental sustainability and aim to recycle more than half of all the waste received from our clients – the remainder that is not able to be recycled ends up being tipped lawfully.
