Have you ever asked the question – what happens to my waste once it’s placed in a skip bin? Is your skip bin provider environmentally aware? Are they green conscious & do they recycle your waste?
The Bin Guys are all of the above, our fleet of trucks are carbon neutral as we offset all of our emissions with Greenfleet Australia & we also use Green Power for all of our energy use.
We recycle your waste from your skip bin right here in Perth Western Australia.
We have our own recycling depot where all skip bins are taken for sorting before we even consider landfill.
Where possible we need to seek alternate uses for recycled materials & encourage their use & acceptance in the marketplace.
Our recycling does not stop at your waste – we need to show that we do as we say & reuse recyclable materials where possible rather than virgin resources in our own business.
In our recycling yard we have used 25mm crushed recycled concrete as our hardstand base rather than virgin crushed limestone.
Our gardens use recycled mulch from green waste and we also catch rainwater in our storage tanks for watering & dust suppression.
Even the irrigation pipe to water our grass trees (reclaimed from land clearing) is recycled from our skip bins.
Energy is from renewable sources such as sun & wind power and where possible we prefer to save paper and issue documents electronically.
All of our heavy equipment such as loader’s and excavator’s have their diesel fuel offset using Greenfleet so that their use is carbon neutral.
