Where should I place my Flexi Bin?
You need to ensure your Flexi Bin is within 4 metres of the street kerb or driveway and must be within your property boundary. The driveway needs to be 3 metres wide to allow safe access. Remember that our truck requires 9 metres of height to safely collect your bin, so don't place the Flexi Bin under tree branches, phone or power lines. If we are lifting the Flexi Bin over a fence, the fence must be no more than 1.2 metres high. Remember to get all your rubbish in the bin, not all around it. Do not overfill and do not attempt to move your Flexi Bin once it is full, as this could lead to personal injury.

Once you have started filling your Flexi Bin, do not move it as the structure of the bag could be compromised, or it could lead to personal injury.
