So Just What is considered General Light Waste that can be put in a Skip Bin?

So as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words" and so maybe a few photos will help explain what materials can be put into a general light waste skip bin.  Above is a photo of a number different types of light waste including cardboard packaging, styrofoam or polystyrene packaging. The are also plastic containers and other plastic items (old plastic kettle),  all of which would be consided general light waste. Even the plastic shopping bags and the rubbish inside them would also be good along the paper and rubbish on the floor. All these materials would all weigh way less than 150 kgs per culic meter.

General Light Waste with Furniture, timber items and bike.

General Light waste can also include metal items like bicycles, old umbrellas, white goods.  Similarly timber and timber items can be included. Examples of acceptable timer items are bookcases, tables, chairs, sofas, lounges, wall units, cabinets, bed frames, desks and draws of all sorts. This picutre also reminded me that you can also include green waste like tree, plant and grass clippings.
