Safe Transportation Practices

As you may be aware, there are specific road safety laws with regards to the transportation of waste that we must adhere to. The Roads and Maritime Service is cracking down on the movement of all loads to ensure they comply with road transport regulations. All transporters with medium to heavy vehicles are being scrutinized to increase the safety of the nation’s roads.

Likewise, the EPA has strict regulations in removing all hazardous materials which are imposed on both the transporter and receiving transfer station or recycling yard. The most common example is Asbestos and even the smallest piece/remnant of Asbestos found in a load of any type will result in a reload and further charges.

At Brown Bros. Skip Bins, we pride ourselves on providing a professional waste removal service, and comply with all laws imposed on our industry. In performing our services, we endeavour to ensure that all services are executed in a safe and efficient manner, while paying close attention to Work Health and Safety to protect our drivers, our customers and the public.

The safety of all stakeholders is paramount in all services we provide. A driver can be held directly responsible for unsafe transportation of materials and equipment, placing greater importance on assisting them with safe transportation practices. Important points to observe include, but are not limited to:

  • All bins must not be filled above the rim of the bin
  • All waste must be secured within the bins and cannot have the potential to become unsecure during transportation
  • All hazardous waste must be collected separately and cannot be collected with general waste or recyclable materials, as there are tracking requirements for hazardous materials. Furthermore, transfer stations/tip sites have laws with which they must follow in the removal of hazardous materials
  • All hazardous waste must be correctly wrapped in accordance with the EPA rules and regulations

In the instance that your bin does not adhere with the above laws, we cannot pickup your bin in accordance with Roads and Transport Legislation. As a result, the bin may incur extra charges.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office and speak with one of our team members.
