General Waste Management

Whilst waste avoidance and sustainability are at the core of Wanless operations, we understand at times whilst we encourage recycling there are hard to recycle residual wastes that need to be disposed of by our customers. Assessing your businesses waste volumes, Wanless provides a range of waste equipment that’s individually tailored to suit your needs and waste output, big or small. Backed by a market leading service delivery model, we provide collections from a large fleet of vehicles nationally to support reliable, on-time collections including rear lift, front lift and hook lift. Whether it’s a regular service you require or a once off clean up we have a solution.

Wanless provides customised commercial waste solutions for all sized businesses that’s individually tailored to your businesses needs and volume by our expert staff. Providing general waste services as part of a total waste solution is simple, cost effective and allows your business to improve its environmental performance.

Solutions for small to medium sized businesses

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; for example - city locations and back laneways. Suitable Industries include restaurants, cafes, hotels, offices, medical centres, retail spaces and work shops as they are compact and take up less space on site. For improved health and safety, mobile garbage bins are easy to manoeuvre and light weight as they are plastic, easy to clean and can be used both inside your businesses premises or can be left outside.





Solutions for larger businesses

For larger customers who produce larger commercial and industrial waste volumes with space onsite for larger containers, we have a range of front lift services with equipment ranging 1.5 - 4.5 meters. Holding larger waste volumes onsite longer between collections, front lift services are a cost effective and flexible waste solution for customers. Depending on how you use the equipment, front lift bins can be fitted with wheels, brakes padlocks and chains.




Our range of Wanless bins are colour coded to USn standards with clearly defined waste and recycling signage to ensure our Wanless customers can easily identify the right bin and landfill as their last point of disposal as Wanless is committed to “creating a better environment”.

Bulk collections

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. Storing larger volumes onsite can effectively reduce transport movements increasing site safety and reducing your company's carbon footprint. Compactors are easier to load, absorb odour and reduce pest control issues to the site as waste is securely contained.

Bulk bins sizes ranging from 12 – 31m3
