Clean fill is considered to be soil or concrete. We separate these types into different bins to be transported to the appropriate location. Concrete can be ground down to make new concrete, and soil can be used as filler or for any other number of things. Concrete must not contain wire mesh/rebar or it is not considered clean. It must be chipped out prior to going into bins.
What is a metric ton?
1 metric tonne is equal to 1,000 kilos or 2,200 pounds
How do we determine weight?
Once the bin is filled, you will call us to pick up the bin. The driver will take the waste to a dump station where the total weight of the bin will be determined. The truck with the bin will drive on to the weight scale. The gross weight of the truck with a bin and waste is determined. The weight of the waste determined by deducting the weight of the truck with an empty bin from the gross weight. The dump station provides a print out from the scale with the weight of the contents in the bin.

What happens if a bin becomes too full?
We cannot legally transport a bin that has been over loaded. It is very unsafe and could cause injury to the public and our drivers. You will be required to remove items sticking out over the top of the bin prior to removal from your premises. No higher than the top edge of the bin. The driver will remove extra garbage and a $50 charge will apply.
