How To Choose Your Skip Bin Size

Bin Sizes

The bins are always reffered to in cubic metres which is the volume they hold. For example a 4 cubic metre or sometimes shortened to 4 metre bin is not the length of the bin just its volume. In the table below the dimensions of the bins are the top outside edges & they slope inwards from there.

Choosing By Size

The first of the two ways of working out your skip bin size is by measuring your largest item you have going in the skip bin. You would only measure items that can’t be broken down like mattresses, couches, fridges etc. None of our skip bins have opening doors and can only be filled level with the top of the bin.

Choosing By Calculation

The second way of working out your skip bin size is getting all your rubbish in a pile and calculating the size from that. You measure the length, width and height in metres and multiply them all together. For example if your pile was 1 metre high & 2.5 metres long & 1.5 metres wide that equals 3.75 cubic metres so a 4 cubic metre bin will do the job.

2m skip bin

2 Cubic Metre

1.8m long
1.4m wide
1.0m high

The 2m³ skip bins are great for those small tidy up jobs. You won’t be able to fit any big furniture into this size skip bin. Also suitable if you are trimming one hedge and some palm fronds.

3m skip bin

3 Cubic Metre

2.0m long
1.5m wide
1.3m high

The 3m³ skip bins are very popular for your standard cleanup around the house. Will easily fit all of those less bulky objects you have. Also suitable if you are trimming a couple of hedges.

4m skip bin

4 Cubic Metre

2.5m long
1.6m wide
1.2m high

The 4m³ skip bins are our most popular size for household cleanups. You would look at this size if you have a piece of furniture, whitegoods or beds to dispose of.

6m skip bin

6 Cubic Metre

3.8m long
1.6m wide
1.2m high

The 6m³ skip bins are suited for larger cleanups. They’re great for those longer items as well as multiple pieces of furniture, whitegoods, deceased estates or moving house.

What Sort Of Rubbish Have You Got

Our Waste Types

We provide four different waste categories. The table below shows what can and can’t go into each waste type. Some waste categoreis have lower hire costs as the rubbish can be 100% recycled.

It is important to work out your waste type as this reflects the price you will pay for the skip bin. Placement of other waste than what is covered in your chosen waste type may result in additional disposal charges to you after the bin is collected.

Warning

Some Other Useful Info

Booking Your Bin

You can order your bin by booking online, sending us an email or call 3888 5568 during business hours.
Usually 24hrs notice, however, we suggest skip bins are booked as far in advance as posible to ensure you are able to get a skip bin that best meets your requirments, price and delivery date. We can sometimes deliver on the same day if we have the skip bin available and are in your area.
We do not guarantee delivery times but can provide a time slot when prearranged with us and agreed to.
You can have the bin for up to 5 days. Eg deliver Friday pick up Wednesday. Unless prearranged with us your bin will be delivered sometime on the first day and picked up sometime on the fifth day.

Delivery Day

Unless you are going to be paying the driver then no, you don’t have to be there when the bin is delivered. We will have all the details we need to deliver the bin to your property.
The skip bin can be placed anywhere on your property so long as we can gain access to it without causing damage. The skip bin can also be placed on the footpath so long as access to pedestrians is not blocked. The bin can’t be placed on the road.
The minimum requirement is a height clearance of 6m and width of 2.8m. We do have a smaller truck so if you are close to these measurements let us know.

Skip Bin Onsite

In no circumstances can a skip bin be filled above the rim. It is illegal to transport an overfilled skip and drivers are subject to heavy fines and demerit points if caught carrying an overloaded bin.
The driver will remove the overloaded item/s as it is illegal to carry an overfull bin. Where possible, the item/s will be left in a neat pile next to where the bin is located.
Gas bottles, oil, paint and tyres can be taken to your local council waste service on selected days throughout the year. Contact council to confirm the dates or visit their website. You can also look at these websites for disposal as well.

No, provided we have access to the skip bin then you don’t have to be there on pick up.
If your bin is not booked out to another job and we are not on the way to pick it up then you can extend it up to a maximum of 7 days total hire. An extra $10 per day will be payable in this event.
We take it to council and private transfer stations where it is sorted. Recycled materials are removed and saved from going to landfill. We also recycle the metal that is in the skip bin.
