Can I move the bin?2017-06-08T03:03:35+12:00

No! Once placed the bin must not be moved. If moved when empty you will not be able to move the bin back and the driver may not be able to pick up the bin again. Any damage done to bin or property by a bin being moved will be the responsibility of the hirer.

Can I have the bin left on the road?2017-06-08T03:03:58+12:00

Unfortunately we are unable to do this as it is a road hazard. The only exemption is if you have obtained a permit from your local council beforehand.
