Asbestos and other Hazardous Material

It is a basic condition of hire that no asbestos-based or other hazardous material (poisons, oil, tyres and batteries) will be placed in a skip bin provided to a hirer by Island Bins.

If at the time of collection of a skip from the hirer's site, or when a skip bin is later emptied by Island Bins it is found to contain any asbestos or other hazardous materials then Island Bins will charge the hirer for any and all disposal costs, and for any remedial services required due to the presence of the hazardous material.

Information regarding the disposal and handling of asbestos and other hazardous materials can be obtained from Workplace Standards Tasmania or Safe Work Australia.
