We’ve compiled a list of some of the most common questions we receive from people wanting to rent a skip bin. If there’s anything else you need to know, please give us a call and one of our expert waste specialists will clear anything up, discuss your needs, and provide a solution tailored to you.
How big are your skip bins?
Our skip bins are available in two, four and six cubic metre sizes, with two cubic metres being the equivalent of eight council-size wheelie bins or two standard trailer loads. Our four and six cubic metre bins have the volume of 16 and 24 wheelie bins, respectively.
What size bin should I choose?
This depends entirely on your application and we’ll give you an idea when you give us a call, but we generally recommend using multiple small skip bins for jobs that dispose more than one type of waste, so we can minimise your tip fees by separating and recycling as much of your waste as possible.
Do your skip bins come with doors?
Not all our bins come with drop-down doors, but we can supply one at your request. Let us know of any spacing or access requirements and we’ll do our best to cater to your needs.
Is there anything I can’t put in the bins?
Unfortunately, we can’t have batteries, paint, and obviously asbestos going to landfill. We can recycle tyres, but please give us a call regarding this as we’ll require them to be separated.
How long can I have the bin for?
Typically for our domestic customers, we leave our bins with you for a maximum of seven days, but we’re quite flexible with this and we can cater to your needs. If you require skip bins for a longer period, get in touch with us.
What are tip fees?
Tip fees are what is charged by council when we bring non-recyclable materials to landfill. Tip fees change case by case, but we’ll advise you on your options for skip hire to minimise fees. We try to recycle as much as we can at our own facilities whenever possible.
