Awamoa Bins & Skips offers curbside waste collection and disposal services for general waste, green waste and recycling as well as skip hire for those bigger jobs.  

We only charge for the empties you receive, that is it, no other hidden costs or contracts to tie you in. 


Not all of our customers have the same collection needs, that's why Awamoa Bins likes to offer its customers a choice of collection frequencies to suit your needs.

You can choose a scheduled service such as weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Our 'if out empty' option is hassle free.  This does as it name indicates, if your bin is out on the curbside, it will get emptied, if it is not out – no empty and no charge - this is great for our customers with changeable or unpredictable collection needs.

For more ad-hoc collections you can choose an 'on call' service whereby we only empty your bin when you call and ask us to, perfect for customers with less frequent collections needs or if our drivers need to access your property. 

Please ensure you call us before 5pm the day prior to collection day to request your collection. 


Our services are detailed below.  Our team will deliver our bins to your door, free-of-charge.  No hire rates, no annual contract.

Please contact us for prices on any of  the below services.  We are also happy to talk to you about payment options to suit your needs.
