How long can I hire the skip bin for?
Our standard skip bin hire period is 5 days. The price will not alter if you only require the bin for a shorter period. If you require the bin for longer than our standard hire period, please contact our office to discuss your requirements.
What skip bin size do I need?
Please see “Our Bins” page which sets out a guideline for bin sizes and dimensions. One cubic metre generally equals one level 6×4 box trailer load. Click here to view these dimensions.
What can I put in the skip bin?
All accepted waste types are listed on our “Waste Types” page. The only items not accepted are bulk food, oils, paint, liquid waste, batteries, tyres and asbestos. Any tyres placed in the bin will be charged at a per tyre rate. If you need to put asbestos in a bin, a designated asbestos bin must be ordered at the time of booking.
Can I put dirt & concrete in the skip bin?
If you have ordered a 3m3 skip bin, you may fill it with dirt and concrete. However, no dirt or concrete is permitted in a 4m3 or 6m3 bin. This is to ensure that our truck is able to lift the loaded skip bin.
How much waste can I put in the skip bin?
Please only fill your bin to the top rail as it is illegal to transport overloaded bins. If a bin is overloaded, we will not be able to collect the bin and you will be charged for an additional bin for the excess waste.
How much notice is required to book a skip bin?
Subject to availability, we can usually deliver your bin the same day. It is however preferred if you could please give us one day’s notice.
How do I pay for my skip bin?
We accept payment by Visa or Mastercard when placing your booking, or alternatively you can pay cash or cheque on delivery. All bins must be paid for prior to delivery.
