Island Bins was established in 1995 as a waste removal business. We supplied garden and trash bags to regular and casual customers and also supplied bulk rubbish removals. In 2003 we started skip bins as well and continued with this setup till 2009. At that stage we had 1500 regular bag customers across Hobart and suburbs and 5 trucks. In 2009 we sold off all our regular bag customers to two different buyers and they both still have there own businesses today. We bought a 2nd bin truck and we've have a great lifestyle buiness ever since.

Reason for Sale
We have built our business to continue for many years. With this in mind we knew we would be selling at some stage. I've just turned 60 years old and the plan has always been to sell now as we have a few other projects we are about embark on. We are a family business and happy to move on. My son who works with us would be available as an employee if required.
