As with all waste collection services, in order to comply with NSW state and local Wollongong council regulations we must limit the materials which can be placed in our skip bins.

Material suspected to contain asbestos: Any old fibro or villaboard, loose insulation, or pipes may contain asbestos, especially if they were installed prior to 1990.

Household and hobby chemicals: This includes cleaning agents, pool and garden chemicals, paints and solvents, acids, and similar substances. These are environmentally unsafe and not suitable for tipping; they can be disposed of separately at council facilities.

Batteries: Batteries of any type should not be placed in skip bins or household garbage. Please take batteries to a recycling centre advised by your local council.

Liquids (including paint tins with wet paint inside): Our bins are not suitable for containing liquids. These should be disposed of separately at council facilities.

Biological or medical waste: Any waste composed of human matter or by-product, or contaminated by biohazardous agent, is unsuitable for disposal in a skip bin. Please contact a specialty waste removal service for biological waste.

Hazardous material: Any hazardous materials not covered above are also unsuitable for disposal in a skip bin. Please contact the council for instructions on disposing of specific hazardous materials.

Putrescible waste (household garbage): Items accepted by your normal household garbage collection – such as food scraps, kitchen garbage, used nappies, and so forth – are not suitable to place in a skip. These items should be placed in your normal garbage bins.
