What is a skip bin used for?
Skip bins are used for removing and disposing of various types of waste. Whether your doing a spring clean to get rid of unused items or clutter, removing garden waste and trees, to renovating and tradesman waste, it is an easy solution to most clean-ups. We have bins ranging from 2m³ to 6m³ (see “Bin Sizes” for dimensions and equivalent holding capacities.)
What items can’t be placed into skip bins?
Liquid, tyres and hazardous wastes are not permitted to be placed in our skip bins. Hazardous wastes include asbestos, car batteries, poisons, paints, oils, gas bottles and toxic wastes. If your not sure if the waste you wish to dispose of is hazardous, please ask when booking.
How much notice is required for booking?
Generally 24 hours is all the time we need to book a bin for you, but sometimes we can deliver at shorter notice. We operate six days a week and seven days during peak demand.
Can I pay by credit card?
Yes. We accept payment with all major credit cards, however we can also take cash on delivery. If you wish to pay cash on delivery, please ensure someone will be home to pay for the delivery on the day. No payment, no bin.
How long can we keep the skip bin for?
The standard time of hire for your skip bin is 7 days. If you need to extend this for a further day or 2, please contact us at least 24 hours prior to original pick up day. A charge of $15 per day applies to extra days.
Can I get the skip bin collected earlier?
Yes, just give us a call if you would like the bin collected sooner.
To what level can I fill the skip bin?
Our skip bins can be filled up to the top rail, but there must not be any materials protruding over the top of the skip. Overloaded bins cannot be collected and you will be responsible for removal of any overloaded waste. We understand that sometimes you find you have more waste than you can fit into the skip you have booked, if this happens do not overload the skip. Contact us to discuss a solution.
Where will you place the skip bin?
The bin must be placed on your property and not public land or land that does not belong to you. You can approach your council for approval to place it on council land (ie the footpath) but we must sight this approval before leaving the bin on public land.
To minimise any damage of the skip bin being placed on your driveway, please place some lengths of wood down first. All care will be taken, but no liability is accepted in delivery and collection of the skip bin from your property.
Can I move the skip bin?
No. Once placed the bin cannot be moved, if you move the skip the truck may not be able to get to it to pick it up again. Any damaged done to the bin or property will be paid for by the hirer.
