What can I put in a Standard Skip Bin?

That's up to you. Each time you hire a Standard Skip Bin you nominate the waste that's going in it. Each type of waste has a different price range depending on how recyclable/reusable it is. When ordering you'll see a list of Acceptable, Not Acceptable and Extra Charge Items for each Standard Skip Bin.

"FILL TO RIM ONLY" is the guideline. Your driver will cover the load securely before picking up. If the tarp cannot securely contain everything, there may be some things that are taken off/out of the bin.

We don't have a weight limit for any of our Skip Bins, but when loaded on the truck it must be within the legal limits of the vehicle.



How long does delivery take?

ASAP is about 2-3 hours, but usually within 24 hours of booking. You can nominate a delivery date when booking.



Do I need to be there for Delivery or Pick-up?

No. In most cases the delivery placement is pretty obvious to your driver. However, when booking (either online or by phone) you can give specific instructions about placement.

What happens to my waste?

Every bin goes through a "Transfer Station". These are specific waste management sites that sort the proceeds of every bin. It's a labour intensive process managed by machines sifting through extracting plastics, metal, soil, concrete and timber to be sent to the appropriate facility for re-processing, recycling or landfill.
