What to consider before booking your skip bin hire.

Moving, downsizing, building or renovating and need to shift excess waste? A skip bin is the answer. But before you book your skip bin make a plan so you know everything will go smoothly on the day and you stay within budget.

  1. Permissions

If the skip bin is placed on your property, you do not need any permission or a permit. However, if the skip bin is to be placed on public lands, road or dual drive ways, a permit may be required. Different councils have different regulations so check with yours before booking, and keep in mind that the skip cannot block pedestrian access or utility pits.

  1. Skip size

    We can cater to large and small jobs. While the most common size for skip bins for a general household clean-up are our 3 & 4 cubic meter skips, we also have compact 2 cubic meter skips for those jobs where access space is crucial. For a large clean-up or renovation, the 6 & 8 cubic metre skips are a more suitable and efficient way to remove waste.
  2. Placement

We will discuss your space with you before you making your booking, but as a guide it’s good to remember that:

  • a skip bin should be placed on private property – this can include most driveways
  • we need access of at least 3 metres wide for a normal truck to deliver your skip bin
  • there are no power lines or trees that will obstruct delivery

We will aim to deliver your skip bin as close as possible to your site for efficiency, minimising the length of trip required to move your waste between locations.

If you think that access may be difficult, feel free to discuss the location of the skip bin with a member of our team.

  1.  Waste Types

While skip bins are the perfect solution to managing your waste removal there are some restrictions to what can and can’t be placed in a skip bin.

Simply these materials CAN:

  • General waste

While these types of materials CANNOT:

  • Oil
  • Chemicals – acids, poisons

If you’re not sure whether a material is acceptable or not, please ring and discuss with a member of our team.
