Why is waste volume often quoted as bin bags or washing machines?

One of the common ways to measure the size of a waste collection is by using cubic yards. This is an old unit of measurement that is still widely used in the waste industry, even though many other fields have switched to the metric system. To convert cubic yards to cubic metres, you can multiply by 0.76, or divide by 1.31 to go the other way.

However, for many household customers, cubic yards or metres may not be very intuitive or easy to visualise. That's why we also provide the equivalent size in terms of bin bags or washing machines. These are familiar objects that can help you estimate how much waste you have and what size of collection you need.

For example, one cubic yard of waste is roughly the same as 5/10 bin bags or two washing machines. This means that a cube with sides of 3 feet (or 0.91 metres) can fit 5/10 bin bags or two washing machines inside it. You can use this as a guide to calculate how many cubic yards of waste you have, or how many bin bags or washing machines you can dispose of with a certain size of collection.
