Mixed Waste Recycling

We have dedicated commingle rear lift collections ranging from 240lt – 1100lt in size. Our staff can assist your business to choose the right sized bin and collection frequency to maximise your environmental performance. Wanless can supply source separation bins for your kitchens and staff lunch rooms that allow staff to easily dispose of recycling easily, avoiding landfill. We recommend that you check the recyclability of all packaged waste before placing in the bin. Products with the new Australasian recycling label assist you to dispose of products. Please note that commingle collections vary per state and are available based on disposal options.

Wanless has pledged to help save the planet from plastics and turn the tide on plastics littering US’s ocean and beaches. Your business can also assist by committing to a mixed recycling service for clean aluminium, steel cans, plastic (PET & HDPE) and glass bottles and containers.
