Fees and charges

We charge by volume for general rubbish, green waste, concrete and soil. Please remove any tarps so the window operator can view the load.

Volume = Length x Width x Height

For example: 6’ x 4’ trailer = 1.8 x 1.2 x 0.45 = 1m which equals 1m3 charged for disposal.

We accept EFTPOS.
