Items that are too large to easily fit into your curbside recycle bins for weekly collection can be safely placed in a larger skip bin designed to handle approved recyclable objects. Some objects such as batteries, gas tanks, pest control bottles and cans, and household hazardous waste materials can be recycled, but need special handling and cannot be placed in a skip bin.

To schedule a skip bin delivery from Backyard Bins, call (08) 9437 3733, and speak with one of our professional recycling specialists. If you have any objects that require special handling, we can help arrange for their disposal as well. We work with your schedule and are available 7 days a week for both skip bin delivery and removal.
